IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 73 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 main 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.
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 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.
Industrial electrification can make a major contribution to CO2 reduction. The aim of the annex is a transfer of knowledge between the international and the state level. At national level, stakeholder engagement aims to clarify the topic of industrial electrification, compare roadmaps and resources, and analyze potential benefits from (joint) programs.
The aim of IEA PVPS Task 12 is to foster international collaboration in the area of photovoltaics and environment. That includes compiling and disseminating accurate Information on environment, health, safety, and other aspects of sustainability associated with the life-cycle of photovoltaics. Results are guidelines and data basis in order to harmonize LCAs and studies on future environmental impacts of PV and PV recycling. The Austrian contribution addressed LCA, implementation of sustainability aspects and dissemination.
Goal of Task 44 is to analyse bioenergy solutions that can provide flexible resources in a low carbon energy system. The objective is to improve understanding on the types, quality and status of flexible bioenergy, and identification of barriers and future development needs in the context of the entire energy system (power, heat and transport).
The Hydrogen TCP aims to accelerate deployment and use of hydrogen technologies by carrying out and co-ordinating collaborative activities of analysis, applied research and communication.
The aim of Energy Conservation through Energy Storage (ECES) is to enable integrated research, development, implementation and integration of energy storage technologies in order to optimise the energy efficiency of all types of energy systems and to promote the use of renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels.
IEA Bioenergy Task 39: Commercialising Conventional and Advanced Transport Biofuels from Biomass and Other Renewable Feedstocks (Working Period 2019-2021)
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.
Austrian participation in IEA Bioenergy Task 32 "Biomass Combustion and Cofiring" in the period 2019 - 2021 and participation in defined task priorities, events and projects that are relevant for Austria. International and national dissemination and networking activities to exchange information and promote cooperation.
