Tilmann Kuhn




Expert on energy efficient buildings, leading research on all aspects of the interaction between solar radiation and buildings' facades.

Dr. Tilmann E. Kuhn studied Physics at the University of Heidelberg. He received his Ph.D. from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens with the thesis titled "Design, Development and Testing of Innovative Solar-Control Facade Systems". Since 1999, he has been working at Fraunhofer ISE, where he is currently the Head of Group Solar Building Envelopes and Deputy Head of Department Energy Efficient Buildings. The research group deals with all aspects of the interaction betwen solar radiation and the building facades. The activities of the group range from visual comfort and daylighting to the integration of PV and solar thermal collectors.
