IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 9 results.
The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP 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 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.
IEA SHC PVT Task 60: Applications of Photovoltaic/thermal (PVT) Systems and New Fields of Application and Examples of PVT
The objectives of the task are the development of new system solutions, where the (Photovoltaic/thermal) PVT technology has clear advantages over the separate installation of PV modules and solar thermal collectors as well as standardization and cost reduction. The Austrian participation serves the establishment and deepening of know-how, the strengthening of the international network as well as the transfer and optimal conversion of the task achievements for the Austrian industry.
IEA SHC Task 59/EBC Annex 76: Deep Renovation of Historic Buildings - Towards lowest possible energy demand and CO2 emission (nZEB)
The aim of IEA SHC Task 59/EBC Annex 76 is the documentation of best practice examples, the development of a multidisciplinary planning process and the development of holistic reconstruction solutions for historic buildings. In addition to the lead of Subtask A (knowledge base), the Austrian participation will also incorporate and further develop results that have been achieved in national demonstration projects and have been tested in practice.
Lighting accounts for 19% of the global electric energy consumption, and major savings can be achieved by intelligently connecting daylighting, electric lighting and control systems. At the same time, optimal visual and non-visual conditions must be provided for the user. Within this project the user requirements for lighting solutions and existing and novel control systems will be analyzed and documented. For evaluation purposes a consistent scheme for the characterization of daylight systems and an hourly rating model for integrated solutions will be worked out. Using a monitoring protocol, implemented integral lighting solutions will be evaluated in lab and field studies.
This Task focuses on the critical analysis, simulation, laboratory test and onsite monitoring of envelope systems entailing elements that use and/or control incident solar energy. Integration of Solar Envelope solutions into the building’s HVAC and lighting systems through a systemic approach is central in this Task.
The goal of the IEA Task participation is to further expand and integrate the Austrian scientific experts in the field of compact thermal energy storage in the international research community and participation into the expertise developed. All national participants have the opportunity to integrate the results of their own R&D projects into the Task, and enable further positioning and integration.
The growing market of solar thermal heating and cooling networks requires support in the integration of complex solar thermal systems. The Austrian project includes the management of the IEA SHC Task 55, the management of Subtask A and the introduction of Austrian project results. In the course of the research project, the integration and optimization of system components and large solar thermal heating and cooling networks are described and advanced.
Retrofitting of non-residential buildings with energy efficient daylight and artificial lighting solutions can significantly contribute to reductions in electric energy consumption. However, appropriate technologies have to be made available to the stakeholders (investors, industry, consultants, designer) that are involved in the retrofitting process. Thus, system solutions for daylighting and artificial lighting were evaluated, simple rating and evaluation tools were developed and case studies that serve as best practice examples were monitored. The results were collected in the Lighting Retrofit Advisor, which helps stakeholders within the lighting retrofit process.
