The Institute for Energy Efficient Buildings and Indoor Climate was actively involved in the project 60 "Modelica-based next-generation tools for new and existing buildings and communities" hosted by the International Energy Agency (http://www.iea-annex60.org/). The aim of the project was the development and demonstration of new information technology methods that support a integrated simulation of buildings and urban districts. Based on the modelling language Modelica previous activities were coordinated and new developments were provided as open-source contribution. Among other libraries, the Modelica library for building simulation AixLib (https://github.com/RWTH-EBC/AixLib) was released within the framework of the project. The project was managed by Michael Wetter (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) and Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. hab. Christoph van Treeck (E3D, RWTH Aachen University). The EBC participated in several subtasks. At the meeting from 15th till 17th of september in Berkeley three employees supported actively the latest developments.
