For the cost efficient and lasting energy supply from ecological sources, wind, photovoltaic and biomass have to be integrated in existing grids. New methods for DSM and virtual power stations are investigated, to improve the control behaviour.
Development of quality assurance by the photovoltaic quality seal and training activities.
Geographic methods for the combination of renewable energy sources to create "virtual power plants" and development of self-sustaining regions in terms of energy-balance and the Kyoto target.
Development of a Photovoltaic Roadmap for Austria - a study with the intention to screen the opportunities, economical potential as well as the barriers of the promising technology Photovoltaics as basis for strategic decisions in energy relevant policies.
Development of a concept that shows the possibility of changing the energy supply of a district from fossil to 100% renewable energy carrier
Development of a flexible package for the plastic solar cell.
Analysis of technical, economical and regulatory conditions to get fair terms under competition in the liberalised market for virtual power plants on renewable energy basis.
The purpose of the project is the development of an ECO-Mover, an innovative photovoltaic-technology together with corresponding system components. The entire R&D process encloses the energetic optimisation of the photovoltaic technology as well as the development of essential components.
The "Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme" of the "International Energy Agency" (IEA) offers the world wide leading research platform in Photovoltaics. The Austrian participation at IEA PVPS is a important link to the international PV-society.
Analysis of potentials as well as technical / economical and organisational solutions to integrate decentralised heating power production from renewables into existing fossil heating grids.
Technology and know how transfer for market introduction of multifunctional photovoltaic solar façade systems. Constructional engineering, integration into the buildings´ energy system, economy. Design of an information website and accompanying target group work.
