Thermochemical Fluids in Greenhouse Farming

Leibniz Universität Hannover

Home > Partners

LUH is one of the nine leading Institutes of Technology in Germany. Founded in 1831, LUH today is study and work place for around 30.000 students and 350 professors in the natural sciences and engineering, the humanities and social sciences as well in law and economics.
Nine faculties with more than 80 full-time and part-time degree courses make Leibniz Universität Hannover one of the largest higher education institutions in Lower Saxony. The joint goal of the more than 5000 employees is that of top quality in research and teaching with a focus on interdisciplinary teaching, research and cooperation projects. To date LUH is coordinating or participating in 95 projects (9 ERC Grants) in Horizon 2020 raising more than 50 Mio Euros third party funds.

With its exemplary facilities, Leibniz Universität Hannover has a large scientific potential, concentrating on nationally and internationally competitive key areas. The creation of the best conditions for scientists, excellent research and education and the support of the next academic generation are of primary interest, confidently competing for the best minds in research and teaching. The research is strengthened by cooperation with internationally leading universities and research centres. Examples of particularly successful facilities in recent years are the founding of the “Produktionstechnisches Zentrum Hannover” (PZH) and the “Laser Zentrum Hannover” (LZH).

The Sustainable Building Systems division has two major fields of research. First, methods of systems engineering and building technology serve to design and test novel configurations of systems that reduce primary energy demand and other relevant factors of environmental impact. Second, methods of digital modelling, simulation and data-driven prediction serve the examination and precise prediction of energy performance and enable system innovations.

Role in the project
LUH will provide expertise on modelling and simulation in the context of heating and cooling systems. This will include creating models of thermochemical material and processes, implementing these models in simulation software and applying simulation software to develop systems and control strategies.
