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 in Heidelberg, Germany. He wrote a PhD with the title "Design, Development and Testing of Innovative Solar-Control Facade Systems" at the Physics Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Since 1999, he has been working for Fraunhofer ISE. He is the head of the group for Solar Facades since 2004. The group is dealing with all aspects of the interaction of solar radiation with the building skin. The activities of the group range from visual comfort and daylighting to the integration of PV and solar thermal collectors. He is Deputy Head of the Department Energy Efficient Buildings since 2019. He coordinated several national and international research projects, and he is a member of several national and international standardization committees. Dr. Tilmann Kuhn is a member of several national and international standardization committees and is an associated editor of the journal "Energy and Buildings". His further research can be found here.
