IEA HPT Annex 51: Acoustic Signatures of Heat Pumps

The aim of the project was to increase the acceptance of heat pumps by reducing their noise emissions and vibrations and to reduce market barriers. Using innovative measurement and data analysis methods, influencing factors on the acoustic emissions of heat pump systems and the impact of acoustic protection measures were investigated. The results were prepared in the form of guidelines and recommendations for action.

IEA HPT Annex 43: Fuel Driven Sorption Heat Pumps

The project aimed at investigating the performance and market potential of gas-fired absorption heat pumps (AHPs) in domestic and small commercial or industrial buildings or applications. Selected processes were simulated for various types of buildings in order to calculate the energetic, ecological and economical potential of this technology. The results were compared with monitoring data of a gas-fired AHP system. In addition, a market survey including market barriers for gas-fired AHPs in Austria was conducted and a list of market supporting measures was compiled.

IEA SHC Task 48: Quality Assurance and Support Measures for Solar Cooling

The completed IEA SHC Task 48 focused on an enhanced quality improvement and market-support measures for the technology option ‘solar thermal cooling or air-conditioning'. In cooperation with a total of 22 organizations (12 research institutes, 5 universities and 5 companies) from eight countries numerous useful reports and tools have been created to improve the quality of solar cooling systems with significant contribution of the Austrian partners.

IEA EBC Annex 62: Ventilative Cooling

The main goal of the Annex 62 is to make ventilative cooling an attractive and energy efficient cooling solution to avoid overheating in buildings. Ventilation is already present in buildings through mechanical and/or natural systems and it can remove excess heat gains as well as increase air velocities to widen the thermal comfort range. The results from the Annex facilitate better possibilities for both design purposes and for energy performance calculation.

IEA HPT Annex 49: Design and integration of heat pumps for nZEB

A dominating concept to reach a nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) is the combination of solar PV systems and heat pumps. The extended scope of the Annex 49 regards the balance of single buildings and groups of buildings/neighbourhoods, a thorough investigation of heat pump integration options for nZEBs and nZE neighbourhoods by means of monitoring and simulation as well as the design and control optimization for heat pumps in nZEB and the integration into energy systems.

IEA EBC Annex 73: Towards Net Zero Energy Resilient Public Communities

Public buildings such as hospitals and educational institutions often house critical infrastructure that depends on sufficient energy and resource supply. The aim of the annex was to develop tools for the planning process of resilient, efficient and low-emission energy systems for such building clusters.

IEA EBC Annex 71: Building Energy Performance Assessment Based on In-situ Measurements

The requirements on building envelope and on building technology are steadily increasing. There is a lack of measurement and analysis methods to control the quality of the built implementation and to optimize the building operation. This project developed a methodological basis to enable an in-situ evaluation of the actual energy performance and building operation. For this purpose, it investigated methods to generate data-driven building models favouring the use of already available on-board data.

IEA EBC Annex 72: Assessing life cycle related environmental impacts caused by buildings

The construction sector has great potential to reduce its energy consumption and the associated environmental impacts. Therefore. the IEA EBC Annex 72 focuses on the harmonization of methods for the assessment of construction-specific and operational environmental impacts (primary energy requirements, greenhouse gas emissions and otherindicators) throughout the life cycle of buildings.
