ECR Energy City Graz - subproject 2: Framework-Plan Energy City Graz-Reininghaus
Main project-issue is the scientific work and the demonstration of the vision of the energy self-sufficient, CO2-neutral city-district Graz-Reininghaus. The Framework-Plan Energy City Graz-Reininghaus shall stimulate an awareness-raising process towards energy-efficient and sustainable city-development.
ECR Energy City Graz - subproject 3: +ERS - Plus Energy Network Reininghaus Süd
The multifunctional neighbourhood "+ERS - Plus Energy Network Reininghaus Süd" was realized within the urban planning area of Graz-Reininghaus. The project aims to optimize the energy concept of the single buildings as well as of the building cluster in order to achieve a plus-energy standard within the residential neighbourhood.
ECR Energy City Graz-Reininghaus: Urban strategies for the new conception, construction, operation and restructuring of an energy self-sufficient city district
The aim is the development of a valid set of specific values and a guideline as a basis for energy self-sufficient district development. Based on the results, a masterplan (energy-network) for the district Graz-Reininghaus shall be developed. Future-oriented "city-building-blocks" will be implemented as flagships of innovation.
EDEN - Developement of a structured data and preparation documentation with a minimized error-proneness for energy performance cerificates.
Current energy performance certificates hold major flaws. Therefore, the presented research initiative aimed at the development of a standardized and easy-to-use, generic Input-Data-Documentation, which ensures the quality of energy certificates for all involved stakeholders. During the development, the documentation had been conducted and for a chosen sample of representative buildings, which is expected to demonstrate the high potential of such a development.
EM Städte - Monitoring and evaluation of urban energy flows
In the first phase of the project, the data source of the energy statistics will be analyzed. Based on the findings of the analysis a methodology on build up regional energy balances will be developed. The methodology will be integrated into the Senflusk tool and tested on five reference cities in Austria.
EMA - Environmental Management Accounting - Pilot-testing
Training kit for environmental management accounting and investment appraisal
Focus of the project was the harmonisation of disclosure reqirements to statistical agencies regarding material and energy consumption, environmental investments and expenditure with the IFAC guidance document on environmental management accounting and the GRI guideline regarding sustainability performance indicators.
ENUMIS - Energetic effects of urban manufacturing in the city
The project examines the challenges of urban manufacturing (UM) from the energy perspective and shows opportunities arising from the implementation of UM concepts for the future design of sustainable energy systems for cities.
EOR - EASEY Online Rating - a roadmap of a free of charge online service for small businesses
Preparation tool for the bank rating; model and indicators - concept for communication and technological options.
EPIKUR – Energy efficiency potential of intelligent measures of urban densification
The present research proposal focused on the possibility, implications and consequences of "inwards urban expansion" through densification of the existing urban tissue. In this context, densification is not only approached through known and common aspects of building regulations and guidelines, but in view of what is actually possible to achieve.
EPSolutely - Development of a circular economy concept in the plastics industry using the example of EPS
In a system-wide cooperation of all relevant actors of the EPS value chain system, concepts, technologies and methods for an EPS circular economy are developed. The integration into an overall concept with optimised logistics and transport systems should enable the transformation of linear EPS value creation systems into a circular economy.
ESSBAR – Edible balcony gardens for retrofit – Vertical Greening Technologies for the City
Demonstration of an affordable, resource-saving and innovative balcony system with integrated edible vertical gardens and rainwater management. Considering the needs of residents for green outdoor spaces and the active participation of residents are an important part of the project.
E_PROFIL - neighborhood profiles for optimized energy transformation processes
E_PROFIL is a set of methods (an IT-supported toolkit) for the elaboration of neighbourhood profiles. The aim of the project is to facilitate an energy and resource efficient development in the planning practice of Austrian cities. Furthermore, the project is an important asset for research and planning activities in Europe and can also be applied to other neighbourhoods.
EasyCell - Design optimization of PEM fuel cells for reducing auxilliaries and simplificating the material-management to facilitate the mass production
EasyCell - A common use of PEM fuel cells is not yet established. It is the aim of this project to optimize the design of PEM fuel cells (minimization of peripheral units, simplified handling of gases and the right design for mass production) to ease a widespread use of PEM fuel cells.
Eco-Checkers - An exhibition of ZOOM Children's Museum
Main results of "Building of Tomorrow" are edited for the target group "children and teenagers". The result is an attractive exposition in the "ZOOM Kindermuseum".
Eco-efficient Product Service Systems
Step by step methodology for the development of future markets by the introduction of eco-efficient product service systems
Eco-textiles - from the eco-niche into the trend market!
Optimum communication strategies and motives for the purchase of eco-textiles by specific target groups are investigated. The results are reviewed with respect to the transferability to other branches of sustainable production and marketing. Aim of the project is to foster the supply of eco-textile products and thereby promoting the Austrian eco-textile producers and retailers.
Eco.District.Heat - Potentials and restrictions of grid-bound heating systems of urban areas
Aim of the project Eco.District.Heat is to provide strategic decision-making support that enables Austrian towns and cities to deal with aspects of grid-bound heating (and cooling) systems in accordance with integrated spatial and energy planning from a holistic perspective when elaborating urban energy concepts.
Ecoleasing for technical commodity goods - Models of use on the example of abrasives
The aim of the project is, to come to general expressions on one hand of the market potential and on the other hand of the restrictions for ecoleasing in the field of technical commodity goods. Within the project an evaluation on the relevance of ecoleasing for the sustainable development will also be done.
Ecological and Social Efficiency Index - EASEY X
Basing on a model and indicators for valuing sustainability of companies quoted at the prime market of the Vienna stock exchange methods and instruments have been developed to analyse their performance. By the connecting step company data have been collected and analysed by four different methods (SPSS, EVA, SVA, MCA Outranking). On a 100 scores scale five companies exceeded barely the mark 70, 6 rank between 60 and 69 further 5 between 52 and 59. The aim is to launch a sustainability EASEY index 2004 or beginning 2005.
