IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 145 results.
The goal is the active participation and representation of the Austrian position and interests in EDNA as well as exchange with and dissemination of results. Austria will contribute to Tasks C “Policies for Connected Devices”, and lead Task D “Total Energy Model”. In addition, Austria also participates and contributes to the “Centre of Excellence”, as well as to the project “Basket of products testing”.
The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP systems as single system and in integrated energy systems. Technical and non-technical barriers will be tackled. The main results of the project are a dimensioning and integration guideline for SHIP and integrated energy systems and a Guideline to Market for SHIP and integrated energy systems.
The aim of the IEA ECES Annex 35 is to investigate and evaluate the potential of different storage technologies and configurations for the application to the sector coupling of electricity, heat and mobility sector and to draft recommendations for politics, research and industry based on the results.
The aim of the project is to continue and further develop the internationally very well accepted participation of Austria in the information network of the IEA Fluidized Bed Conversion (FBC) Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) to optimize fluidized bed conversion of fuels applied to clean energy production (heat and power). All stakeholders will be included on a national as well as on a global level.
IEA HPT Annex 55: Comfort and Climate Box – Speeding up market development for integrating heat pumps and storage packages
In the IEA HPT Annex 55, heat pumps with integrated thermal/electrical storage systems for existing buildings that are as close to the market as possible will be developed. Furthermore, measures to accelerate market development will be worked out.
The main objective of Annex 33 “Stationary Applications” is to identify potential markets and possible fuels for fuel cells.
The aim of this Annex is to provide all ISGAN members with detailed information of the current status of pilot- and demonstration projects for Smart Grids. Different communication methods are used: Casebooks describe demonstration projects highlighting a certain focus of Smart Grids research and development. The Survey on drivers and technologies for Smart Grid projects identifies countries’ specific motivating drivers for pursuing smart grids and catalogue existing activities. Knowledge Transfer Projects (KTPs). allow for an interactive dialogue with ISGAN members as well as interested stakeholders via workshops.
Analyzes are planned on the technological and economic requirements of high-quality bioenergy sources, biomass resources and advanced logistics chains, sustainable biomass production and trade, stimulating trade and investment in trade and related market studies.
The goal of the Annex Electric Motor Systems is to raise awareness on the large savings potential in motor systems, while showing the realization method of such a path. After publishing the policy and audit guidelines for motor systems Austria leads the task „New Industrial Developments and Digitalization in Motor Systems“.
As digitalization progresses, heat pumps are becoming part of the Internet of Things (IoT). In this project, the opportunities and challenges of IoT-capable heat pumps for the use in households, commercial enterprises and industrial applications will be investigated and made available to the relevant target groups in the form of guidelines, data and information relevant to standards.
By participating in the IEA Wind Task 27, a number of goals could be achieved, including the development of a site assessment scheme for wind turbines in areas with high turbulence intensities, the further development of the IEC 61400 standard, the participation in the “Compendium of IEA Wind TCP Task 27 case studies “And the update of the “Small Wind Power Report 2018” as well as activities such as holding the event “Small Wind Power Conference” in Austria.
The international Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) aims to improve the understanding of Smart-Grid-technologies and to accelerate global deployment. The work in ISGAN is structured in eight standing working groups (annexes). The present project describes the Austrian contribution to Annex 1: Smart Grids Inventory and Annex 2: Smart Grids Case Studies.
The UsersTCP provides evidence from socio-technical research on the design, social acceptance and usability of clean energy technologies. Users play a central role within energy systems. The findings will support political decisions for a clean, efficient and safe energy system.
The IEA EBC Annex 79 aims to provide new insights into comfort-related occupant behaviour in buildings and its impact on building energy performance as well as occupant-centric building design and operation.
The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) aims at pushing worldwide implementation of Smart Grids. Annex 7 – „Smart Grid Transitions“ deals with institutional and socio-technical questions of a profound system transition of electricity networks.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2019-2020)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at creating and sharing a comprehensive knowledge-base of smart grid testing facilities, test beds and important demonstration projects. Furthermore the project seeks to improve current smart grid testing and evaluation capabilities and to establish a framework for stakeholders to gain from sharing nonproprietary results, advice and assistance.
ISGAN aims at enhancing the knowledge about Smart Grid Technologies and accelerating their international development. The main objective of the Austrian participation in IEA ISGAN Annex 6 is to acquire knowledge and develop long-term concepts for the development of an intelligent electricity system, with the focus on the interaction of distribution and transmission networks.
The IEA-PVPS Task 14, led by Austria as Operating Agent, promotes the use of grid connected PV as an important source in electric power systems on a high penetration level where additional efforts may be necessary to integrate the dispersed generators in an optimum manner. In a number of case studies from the participating countries, the challenges and approaches in the field of distribution networks, system management and power electronics components were shown in an international context. The result being elaborate reports with targeted recommendations and required measures to significantly increase the share of photovoltaics in electricity grids.
As part of the "Annex 63" project, Austria has worked with 10 other countries to develop guidelines for the successful implementation of energy strategies at local level. The results include support for nine strategic measures, descriptions of case studies, support materials and recommendations for different target groups.
The IEA PVPS Task 17 focuses on the potential contributions of PV technologies to the transport sector as well as on the expected market potential of PV application in the transport sector.
