-{{:​picopen:​philips_experimentierhaus.jpg?​300 }} <- ** The Philips Experimental House (from: Hörster et al))**\\ \\ Parallel to the Scandinavian and American developments,​ systematic study of energy-efficient buildings was carried out in Germany by Dr. Horst Hörster (research group leader), Dr. Bernd Steinmüller (building models and simulations),​ Dr. Günther Bergmann, Dr. Richard Bruno, Dr. Wilhelm Hermann, Dr. Reinhard Kersten, and Ing. Klaus Klinkenberg,​ with funding provided by the Federal Ministry of Research. A super-insulated experimental house, built in 1974/75 in Aachen, equipped with ground heat exchangers, controlled ventilation,​ solar and heat pump technology and “inhabited” by a computer, served as a test and calibration laboratory for computer models, used to explore the possibilities of energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. These studies showed the potential for energy savings in the order of 10 to 20 times for Europe and America using passive measures alone, thus proving that such measures are an important step on the way to energy efficient buildings. Dr. Bernd Steinmüller has been engaged again in research on efficient buildings since 1997 and continues to be a pioneer, disseminating original ideas worldwide. ​+{{:​picopen:​philips_experimentierhaus.jpg?​300 }} <- ** The Philips Experimental House (from: Hörster et al))**\\ \\ Parallel to the Scandinavian and American developments,​ systematic study of energy-efficient buildings was carried out in Germany by Dr. Horst Hörster (research group leader), Dr. Bernd Steinmüller (building models and simulations),​ Dr. Günther Bergmann, Dr. Richard Bruno, Dr. Wilhelm Hermann, Dr. Reinhard Kersten, and Ing.

 These experiences gave the Passive House research the assurance and confidence that physics works in practice too.  A. B. Lovins visited the Passive House in Darmstadt Kranichstein in 1995.  It was he who suggested that the Passive House should be considered not just as a research project, but also as the energy standard of the future. See [[Basics:​The Passive House - historical review#​Literature|[Lovins 1978], [Carlock 1985], [Weizsäcker,​ Lovins 1995] ]].\\ These experiences gave the Passive House research the assurance and confidence that physics works in practice too.  A.
