Energy transition: energy self-sufficiency in single-family bulidings

Researchers of KIT-IIP, including lead author Max Kleinebrahm, together with partners, have investigated the potential for a completely self-sufficient energy supply of residential buildings. In the journal "Joule", they show that 53 percent of single-family homes in Europe can become technically energy self-sufficient - and this by today.
