Performing a feasibility study of establishing a sustainable product service for raising the energy efficiency of injection moulding machines for plastics via analysing the basic organizational and technical conditions.
Compatibility of sustainability and economic efficiency of bioethanol production with a special focus on small-sized ethanol plants
Scientific investigation of compatibility of sustainability and economic efficiency of bioethanol production with a special focus on small-sized ethanol plants. Improvement of energetic efficiency by integration of residuals from feedstock- and bioethanol production.
Evaluation of mid- and longterm potential for growth and exports in various sectors of renewable energy systems. Analysis of corresponding impacts on employment and value added in Austria. Recommendations for research- and technology development.
Within the region of East-Styria a variety of so-called regional multifunctional energy centers have been designed for selected location which can be characterized by generating renewable energy and additional products or services. Identification of optimum set-up of energy centers. General recommendation for implementation.
Legal, economical and technical preconditions for the feed-in of biogas into the Austrian natural gas grid
Legal, economical and technical preconditions for a successful introduction and market development of fermentation gas feed-in to the Austrian natural gas grid. Appropriate legal and financial support regulations. Calculation basis for demonstration plants.
In liberalized grids the requirements for pumped storage equipment rise dramatically. The development of a controllable pump turbine to help stabilize the grid is one of the possible solutions to this problem.
Compilation of the manual to realise initiatives for energy regions of tomorrow; integrating the experiences generated in the winner projects, outcomes of representative energy-projects and the know-how of scientific works; distribution by multiplicators, realization of distribution activities
Spatial models as a basis of decision making for the utilisation of regionally available energy potentials for a CO2 neutral satisfaction of the local heat demand
Analytical GIS-methods to model regionally available renewable energy potentials for the evaluation of measures to achieve a CO2-neutral heating and cooling supply.
Innovative system for decentralized CHP on basis of biomass gasification with process optimized production of a low-tar producer gas
Tar loads in the producer gas of CHP-plants based on biomass gasification are reduced by primary measures (staged gasification), whereby the possibilities for application are increased.
Development of an business segment called "Waldbiomasseversorgung-SÜDOST" through senior utilization of non active wood
A sharp increase in the Austrian industry's demand for wood, and in particular the rising need of biomass plant operators for energy wood, has led to a fundamental transformation of the timber market from a buyer's to a seller's market. New marketing opportunities in terms of a range of wood energy products, combined with an efficient way of harvesting, have opened up new economic prospects for the forestry industry.
Obtaining, preparation and circulation of information about international evolutions in the biomass combustion field and -co combustion, collaboration at and management of task emphases

Transfer of technology and know-how for the initiation of fermentation gas net feed-in pilot projects.
Target group communication of the technical possibilities of fermentation gas net feed-in. Information preparation and reduction in planning complexity. Support and networking of potential future plant operators. Establishing a service office as contact point.
A virtual biomass plant comprising 30 micro-CHP-Modules, each of them integrated into an existing pellets-boiler in the Austrian region of eastern Styria is to be tested. The goal of this project is to gain experience and to introduce a new sustainable technology.
The aim of the project was to assess which forms and conditions of interaction can foster the integration of higher shares of distributed generation into the Austrian electricity grid.
A concept for a cooperative forest fuel supply chain network for two regions of Austria is developed in order to minimise total system costs while simultaneously increasing supply guarantee for the plants. With results from previous projects and import data a concept for whole Austria is developed.
