Renew Building - Competence Building and Knowledge Transfer for Climate-friendly renovation with ecological and renewable materials
The project Renew Building provided knowledge about eco-friendly renovation to the target groups (planners, architects, students of architecture, etc.) through theory and practice classes, lectures, an e-learning platform, and in an online knowledge database.
Climate neutral buildings from the period of promoterism - ways, potentials and possibilities of implementation
The focus was on the goal-oriented and economic options, in order to achieve a CO2-neutral energy supply and hermetically sealed building envelope as well as to show high energy efficiency when using. On the other hand building protection regulations and the quality in use are to be considered.
The present project is based on the results of the project "The energy-efficient hospital: realistic departure points and identification of possible measures"
From October 7 to 9, 2009 the AEE INTEC has organized an international symposium "Ökosan 09". The emphasis of the symposium was the communication of (partial) results of running and closed cooperation projects by leading technical experts dealing with the retrofit of large-scale buildings.

plusFacades - International know-how- and knowledge transfer of "intelligent Facade systems" for Austrian players and key personnel
The project proceeds from the idea that prefabricated intelligent facade systems represent a promising technology for the energy efficient refurbishment of buildings. A goal is to process the present international state-of-the-art and the existing know-how to this topic for Austrian experts.
Energy aspects on land use planning were worked up on the basis of research and demonstration projects in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The target groups from administration, politics, architecture as well as developers and future dwellers were addressed with custom-made events.
Online reference for ecologically rated building construction details suitable for achieving Passivhaus standard
An already well-established web database management system is being adapted to present the contents of a catalogue of building elements for the Passivhaus standard. A wider distribution of the contents and future extensions of the catalogue by distributed workgroups are the promises of the project.
This study investigates if technologies of building integrated Photovoltaic could be developed and produced in Austria for being competitive on the global market. What starting position of the national PV industry and research is given and what steps are needed in order to seize this opportunity.
