On September 21, 2015, Fraunhofer CSE Director, Dr. Christian Hoepfner, welcomed German Consul General, Ralf Horlemann; Düsseldorf Mayor, Thomas Geisel; Düsseldorf Deputy Mayor, Helga Stulgies; and representatives from the City of Düsseldorf to the Fraunhofer CSE Living Laboratory.

Mayor Geisel and his delegation’s visit to Fraunhofer CSE was part of a 5-day trip to the U.S. East Coast focused on environmental protection of the future. Looking to learn more about the latest trends in building energy technologies, the group toured the Fraunhofer CSE Living Laboratory, a complete energy-retrofit of a 100-year-old building that showcases innovative sustainable energy technologies and practices. The Living Laboratory also houses Fraunhofer CSE’s photovoltaic and building energy and enclosure research laboratories.

“I was particularly impressed [with] the successful thermal refurbishment of the historic building, including the efforts of LED, as well as their efficient management,” said Deputy Mayor Stulgies in a press release issued by the City of Düsseldorf.

The group closed out their tour with a discussion about the Living Laboratory and its integrated technologies.
