IEA 4E Annex Electronic Devices and Networks Annex - EDNA (working period 2017 – 2019) Task 3: "Intelligent efficiency". Project: "Basket of products testing"
The goal is the active participation and the representation of the Austrian position and interests in EDNA as well as exchange with and dissemination of results. Further, Austria shall contribute to Task 3 “Intelligent Effficiency” (IE) and the project “Basket of products testing”, in the form of documented measurements of the energy demand of selected products in network standby mode. Austria collaborates with Switzerland on two concept papers, namely „IoT as enabler“ and „Energy harvesting technolgies“. Two further concept papers on the topics “Energy monitoring systems” and “Efficiency of e-vehicle charging” will be prepared by Austria and brought to the EDNA working plan.
Promotion of energy efficiency of poly-phase electric AC motors and motor systems in relevant applications as pumps, fans, compressors and mechanical drives that are generally used in industry, infrastructure and large buildings. This work also included new technologies such as frequency inverters (adjustable speed drive) and permanent magnet motors.
In the Mapping and Benchmarking work (formerly M&B Annex) the following product were analyzed: domestic refrigeration (update), dishwashers, settop boxes, transformers and lights, for which this report includes most relevant results and the related M&B publications. It also introduces the 2015-2016 work on motors, liquid chillers, and water boilers.
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 Guidelines for Electric Motor Systems“ and recommendations for carrying out energy audits for motor systems based on international standards Austria will analyse the impact of industrial automation on electricity consumption and the motor market.
Task 31 was a research and development oriented Task with the objective to contribute to the identification and development of techniques and materials to reduce the cost and improve the durability of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs).

The main objective of Annex 33 “Stationary Applications” is to push the technology development of key components and systems. Market implementation and transformation will be supported by the analysis and development of the necessary political framework and instruments. The current technological, economic and political barriers are to be identified, solutions developed and the barriers gradually broken down. The Austrian Energy Agency represents Austria in Annex 33 - Stationary applications.
The aim of Annex 35 is the information exchange on the status and new developments of portable fuel cell systems and comprises the development and manufacture of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) all the way through to system components such as electronic converters or gas supply units. In addition the setup and configuration of hybridized systems and the key topics of secure operation, codes and standards are of interest.
The aim of Annex 35 of Technology Collaboration Programm on Advanced Fuel Cells of the International Energy Agency (IEA) included information exchange on the status and new developments of portable fuel cell systems such as the direct ethanol fuel cell (DEFC) and the direct borohydride fuel cell (DBFC) and comprised the development and manufacture of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) all the way through to system components such as electronic converters or gas supply units.
The main goal of the IEA Advanced Fuel Cells programme is to enhance the technology development of key components and systems of fuel cells; furthermore to prepare the market implementation of fuel cells by analysis/development of the necessary policy frame work (incl. necessary instruments) and the elimination of existing barriers.
Austrian participation in Task 32 "Biomass Combustion and Cofiring" in the working period 2016-2018 and active participation in the defined Task main objectives, events and projects which are of relevance for Austria. International and national dissemination and networking activities for information exchange and for the initiation of cooperation.
The objectives of Task 33 are to monitor, review and exchange information on biomass and waste gasification research, development, and demonstration and to promote cooperation among the participating countries and industry to eliminate technological impediments to the advancement of thermal gasification of biomass and waste.
Obtaining, processing and dissemination of information about international development in the field of thermal gasification of biomass as well as leadership of several key aspects of the task.
Key issues for realisation and dissemination of extraction of biogas from byproducts, waste and bioenergy crops were modulated by international experts.
The Austrian representatives participated in the expert group „IEA Bioenergy Task 37 – Energy from Biogas“ for the period 2013-2015. Their main tasks was the work on the technical brochures on biogas plant monitoring, digestate processing and the evaluation of pretreatment technologies. In addition, they participated in the knowledge exchange of the participating countries.
Participation as Austrian representative in the expert group during the period 2016-2018 in order to achieve knowledge-exchange, establishment of technical reports and recommendations, as well as dissemination of the gained information to Austrian stakeholders.
IEA Bioenergy Task 38: Greenhouse gas balances of biomass and bioenergy systems (working period 2004 - 2007)
The main objective of Task 38 is, to calculate, on a full fuel cycle basis, greenhouse gas balances of selected biomass and bioenergy systems by applying and improving the existing standard methodology.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialization of conventional and advanced liquid biofuels from biomass (working period 2016 - 2018)
IEA Bioenergy Task 39 deals with the commercialization of conventional and advanced biofuels, including innovative raw materials such as micro-algae, their economic, environmental and social assessment and the investigation of relevant policies. Findings from countries with a committed biofuels policy are made accessible to Austria, and success stories of Austrian industry, research and policy are promoted internationally.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercializing conventional and advanced liquid biofuels from biomass. (Working period 2013 - 2016)
The aim of Task 39 „Liquid Biofuels“ is to provide information and analyses on technology development as well as on policy issues and markets to provide scientific background for political and economical decisions. Task 39 initiated mutual R&D projects, to improve the economics of advanced technologies, to exploit new feedstocks and to gain knowledge for the developments after 2020.
IEA Bioenergy Task 40: Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade - Securing Supply and Demand (working period 2010 - 2012)
Relevant international trade currents of biomass for Austria as well as frame conditions for sustainable use of biomass have been analysed and documented. One of the key issues was to analyse certification procedures for sustainable bioenergy products.
