IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 71 results.
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.
The rapidly increasing cooling demand for buildings - internationally as well as in Austria - requires further development and application of low energy and low carbon cooling solutions on a large scale. The Annex 80 is meeting this challenge boosting the development and implementation of appropriate cooling solutions by transferring knowledge and coordinating international research endeavours.
The main objective of IEA SHC Task 62 is to increase the use of solarthermal energy in industry, to develop newcollector technologies and to open up industrial and municipal water treatment as a newarea of application with high market potential for solar thermal energy. The nexus between solar thermal energy and water treatment enables the development of newand innovative technology combinations and the change to a sustainable, resource- and energy-efficient industry.
The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is planned as a new Annex to the IEA 4E TCP. PECTA shall assess the efficiency benefit of using the emerging WBG technology. PECTA will serve as base for policy makers and independent knowledge platform for all different types of stakeholders and all kind of parties interested in efficiency potential and integration of WBG.
The aim of Task 33 „Gasification of Biomass and Waste“ is to exchange information on utilization of product gases from thermal biomass gasification to produce heat, electricity, chemicals and fuels. Especially the information exchange on R&D programs in the area of biomass gasification, commercial plants and possible markets is taken into account, to remove technical and non-technical barriers for the market introduction of biomass gasification.
The representation of Austria within the IEA-Bioenergy Task 42 Biorefining for the period 2019-2022. Networking of national experts at international level within the Task. Austrian contribution’s to the implementation of the planned Task 42 work programme for the further development, implementation and evaluation of biorefineries within the Implementing Agreement IEA- Bioenergy.
Aim of Task 37 is to accelerate development and progress of biogas technology in the member countries. During the working period 2019-2021 the focus lies on the ecological and economical implementation of biogas technology in agricultural and industrial processes.
Task 19 deals with the challenges of wind power utilisation in icing conditions and provides a strong opportunity to generate new knowledge by global networking. Energiewerkstatt leads a subtask in the field of icefall risk and works on a transfer-function for converting the icing information on an anemometer to a wind turbine.
Task 32 deals with the challenges of using Wind-LIDAR-Systems and provides a strong opportunity to generate new knowledge by global networking. Energiewerkstatt elaborates an analysis regarding data availabilities of LIDAR measurement campaigns at different sites in Austria and resumes an organisational role regarding the assessment of uncertainties of LIDAR measurements in complex terrain.
IEA Bioenergy’s vision is to achieve a substantial bioenergy contribution to future global energy demands by accelerating the production and use of environmentally sound, socially accepted and cost-competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis, thus providing increased security of supply whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy use.
