IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 95 results.
In IEA Hydrogen Task 41, the TIMES Austria model of the Austrian Energy Agency and the experiences from the showcase energy region WIVA P&G will be brought into the international cooperation of modellers.
Hybrid energy networks, i.e. the integration of electricity, heat and gas networks, can make a decisive contribution to optimizing the energy system. The IEA DHC Annex TS3 analyses the potentials and challenges of hybrid energy networks from the perspective of the district heating / cooling system. This includes the analysis of relevant technologies and synergies, an assessment of the different methodological approaches and tools, the analysis of case studies as well as the development of suitable business models and regulations.
The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP (Solar Heat in Industrial Processes) 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 ES 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 Bioenergy Task 40 traditionally focused on international trade and supply chains of biomass for bioenergy. Starting in 2018, the systems view was broadened, also to better meet Austrian requirements. The supply chain focus was maintained, but with a broader premise: The establishment of bio-based value chains for a sustainable and fair bioeconomy.
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 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 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 IEA Energy Storage (ES TCP) 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.
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.
Austrian contributions to the implementation of the planned Task 42 work program for the further development, implementation and evaluation of biorefineries within the IEA Bioenergy TCP.
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.
The WGCC enables information and experience exchange, the identification of bottlenecks that lead to specific research questions and a direct communication with cities on their needs, to enable them to transform their energy systems. The working group is a joint initiative across several TCPs with in-depth participation of technical and non-technical (external) experts.
The objective of EOR TCP is to disseminate the results of research and development for efficient use of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The EOR TCP supports national efforts to reduce costs of existing technologies and to research new technologies to enhance reservoir oil recovery.
