Pleasant indoor climate thanks to switchable sun protection glass ec | smart glass |. Energy efficiency as a school subject. The Science College Overbach near Aachen is an experimental school: electronic boards, special courses, unusual subject combinations. The building is also exemplary - right down to the switchable glass in the outer shell. Light and energy transmission can be regulated automatically or at the push of a button. That is why there is no “heat free”. The "Energy Efficient School" project itself becomes a school subject as part of the "Energy-Optimized Building" funding initiative.
