Half the energy consumption at a nearly doubled usable area: The restored mathematics building on Campus South of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) sets new benchmarks in energy efficiency and offers up-to-date conditions for education and research. The building was handed over officially to KIT today in the presence of the Baden-Württemberg Minister of Finance and Economics, Dr. Nils Schmid, and the President of KIT, Professor Holger Hanselka.
