The newly developed experimental façades are completely installed and equipped with 96 sensors per facade. The colored wall of the experimental rooms (see photo 1) consists of removable façade elements to enable an exchange of the insulation material if required for research purposes. To monitor the energy performance of the façade in a comprehensive approach, 96 measurement sensors in each experimental façade and 8 sensors in each room are collecting data every 15 minutes from now onwards. To ensure a complete analysis of the data material, weather parameters are additionally measured at the outside of the facades. The measurement is done under real working conditions as in each room two working places have been arranged that are used by the GPEE project members of the Lodz University of Technology. By setting up the experimental facades and by measuring corresponding data a big step in research towards implementation of energy efficient façade technology has been realized.
