Field of Work
Prof. Stergiaropoulos is working in the research and development of energy efficient HVAC systems for more than 20 years. He has extended experiences in energetic evaluation of buildings and their HVAC systems as well as in the field of rational energy use in buildings due to application of heat pumps, ventilation units with heat recovery and building management systems.
The Institute for Building Energetics is working in the research, development and calculation of components for technical building equipment and construction of test stands. Other areas of research are methods for evaluating the energy demand of buildings, air purification at work, air quality and thermal comfort. For this purpose flow simulations and coupled building and equipment simulations are performed.
Konstantinos Stergiaropoulos was born in Sindelfingen in 1970. After studying mechanical engineering he received his doctorate at the University of Stuttgart (Energieaufwand maschineller Wohnungslüftung in Kombination mit Heizsystemen). Afterwards, he worked at Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH (Research and Development, Competence Center Refrigeration and Heat Pump Technology) and returned 2016 to th University of Stuttgart. He was appointed to the Chair for Heating and Ventilation and is leading the Institute for Building Energetics since mid 2016. He was awarded with the Ring of Honour by the Association of German Engineers at 2009.
