The aim of the project is the design, optimisation and demonstration of a hybrid energy supply system as well as optimised material flows for a restaurant and hotel business in an exposed location. The concept allows the integration of material flows into the heat and energy supply system.
The core of the project P³Power is the measurement technology NetDetection, which is able to detect the power consumption of a household from any point, e.g. a regular wall socket. Based on this technology a plug&play powerplant, consisting of photovoltaics and battery pack, is realized. The system is able to guarantee 100% self-consumption within flexible aggregates (from single households to whole communes) without any changes of existing infrastructure. The measurement technology will be implemented into digital hardware, evaluated comprehensively in lab and household environment and subsequently new energy service business models are developed.
DeLight Monitoring - Demo light Impact-Monitoring and metrological investigation of energy-efficient buildings
The Project consists of the metrological examination of ten innovative buildings in terms of energy consumption and user comfort. In addition, building constructors and operators as well as the public are sensitized to the subject of energy-related optimization of building operation. Also, the potentials of energy-related optimization of building operation are shown.
PLAISIR analyses socially innovative energy projects in structurally disadvantaged regions and therefore is the first project working in the research gap at the interface between social capital-oriented endogenous regional development and resource-oriented energy planning. The practice of socially innovative energy planning is analysed in the context of spatial structural, spatial energy planning development paths at the regional level with the aim to identify region specific and the project-specific factors of social innovation in energy-oriented planning.
Press support for "Building of Tomorrow"
Knowledge transfer, communication and discussion of the results of the Building of Tomorrow programme in the fields of architecture, planning, construction and companies in the building industry.
Many traffic areas in urban environments are actually used as such only a small fraction of the time. Subject of this project was to investigate the possibility of using those areas by additional integration of photobioreactors for the production of biomass, integrating such systems to the maximum extent into the urban substance and energy cycles.
The project BauModern turned to non-profit and commercial housing developers and real estate managements. In close co-operation with the federations of the housing and real estate economy has been achieved that builders are informed about market-suited innovative technologies and concepts and use these strengthened for their projects both in the new building and in the refurbishment.
Development of an internet-based tool for passive house retrofit für - target group social housing companies. Actualization of tool after test and evaluation in case-studies. dissemination activities in austria.
Dissemination of results of the research initiative "Building of tomorrow" for two specific target groups - master builder and installer - implementation in further vocational training concepts
The AIDA project aimed to increase the number of nearly-zero-energy-buildings, the number of building professionals trained on integrated energy design and the number of municipalities starting to build/refurbish buildings to nZEB levels.
Main results of "Building of Tomorrow" are edited for the target group "children and teenagers". The result is an attractive exposition in the "ZOOM Kindermuseum".
This study uses several data sources to analyze the effects of the research programe "Haus der Zukunft" ("Building of Tomorrow") on the Austrian housebuilding industry and the built environment.
Dissemination aimed at defining the relevant target groups and broadly distributing the innovative solutions of the flagship project GdZ to the defined target groups. It is of crucial importance to effect a wide awareness level and to make a deep impact on the relevant target groups.
Under the project "Building of tomorrow live" over a year long several excursions to "Building of tomorrow" demonstration projects and other passive houses were organised. Sightseeing opportunities were surveyed, updated several times and published on the web.
Concept for a high quality, PC supported, 60 minutes energy counselling method, focusing on building refurbishment and new constructions, including a software tested in real counselling situations and a printed documentation.
Analysis of the performance of a demonstration building on the Philippines and potential for transferability to other developing and newly industrialising countries.
Specialised theoretical and practical training for designers/installers of comfort ventilation systems in residential buildings.
The project "New4Old - New energy for old buildings - Promoting the integration of RES & RUE measures in historic buildings" aims to promote the integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies into historic buildings, and to create a European-wide network of Renewable Energy Houses in the different Member States of the European Union.
The use of sustainable building materials is a key issue for sustainable development of the building sector. Emission free indoor air, minimized embodied energy of construction materials and health risk for construction workers are three main aspects. Between five hospital operators in Austria, Germany and Switzerland a practical exchange of experience focused on material ecology will be initiated and moderated.
