Concept development for the implementation of efficient energy services as part of grid connected energy supply to increase energy end-use efficiency.
Development of practicable energy services for the summer utilization of district heating systems with reference to existing technologies to improve the efficiency and potentialities for the integration of renewable energy.
Analysis of success factors, restrictions and risks on the development and implementation process caused by the system integration of renewable energy technology in industrial regions with higher energy demand.
Development of a concept that shows the possibility of changing the energy supply of a district from fossil to 100% renewable energy carrier
The aim of the exploration-study for the urban region Bruck/Oberaich "Energieschwamm Bruck" or "Energy-Sponge-Bruck" was to establish clear and stringent basics for a flexible development of the future energy system. Therefore an energy development concept as well as a cadaster for short-term implementation measures had been applied. The structured, Bruck-based approach acts as framework for a general energy-conception-method, valid for small and medium urban regions with 10,000 to 20,000 inhabitants.
Innovative, dynamic control concepts shall be developed which enable (air) heat pumps in combination with PV- or renewable grid electricity to use the building mass of a multi-familiy house as heat storage. User acceptance shall be evaluated and possible business models shall be developed.
The aim of the project is the design, optimisation and demonstration of a hybrid energy supply system as well as optimised material flows for a restaurant and hotel business in an exposed location. The concept allows the integration of material flows into the heat and energy supply system.
EnergyCityConcepts - Methods and concepts for the implementation of sustainable energy systems in cities
Two concrete model regions (small city Gleisdorf and urban city quarter Salzburg-Schallmoos) will be developed and tested using new methodical approaches (interdisciplinary urban and regional energy planning, modeling and simulation). Therefore, it is aimed to substantiate scenarios and concepts for the implementation of defined targets on technical, ecological and economic criteria.
EnerPHit-green concept Modernisation of a historic building with application of an aerogel insulation plaster
This demonstration project shows the comprehensive modernization of a historic building within the constraints of a regional protection zone. By using the Aerogel high-performance insulating plaster, a comprehensive energy-efficient building refurbishment had been realized without changing the outer appearance of the façade.
In "Enerspired Cities" the concept for an automized junction of judicial secured access regulation to (geo-)energy data is elaborated. This will be adapted to the specific situations in the cities of Innsbruck, Salzburg and Vienna and implemented in dedicated pilot applications. The declared aim is the support of urban planning, monitoring and research by an easy and transparent access to base data coming from various sources for a wide range of users.
Based on a market analysis and on selected laboratory experiments the economy of utilization of oilseed processing remnants should be improved. Product suggestions resulting from the market analysis will be analysed for their technical feasibility by laboratory tests and a synopsis of both developed.
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.
Environmental Label PLUS / Umweltzeichen PLUS (UZ+): Extension of the Austrian Environmental Label towards Sustainability
Aspects of sustainable beyond pure ecological goals become increasingly important for consumers, corporations and the general public. The well-known Austrian Environmental Label should be extended to meet these comprehensive requirements.
Environmental, Material Flow and Sustainability Management Accounting - Offensive diffusion in adult education
Diffusion of the "Factory of Tomorrow" project line on environmental and material flow cost accounting (EMA and MFCA) for corporate and national system boundaries, as well as related tools for sustainability accounting in existing post graduate studies.
Preparation tool for the bank rating; model and indicators - concept for communication and technological options.
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.
Essential oils instead of neurotoxic substance - protection from pest by the use of innovative application of pheromones
Corn production in Europe is seriously threatened by a new pest. Highly toxic insecticides are currently the only means of control. Biological signals (Semiochemicals) offer an environmentally friendly alternative, which is yet to be made available for corn as for many other crop plants.
Establishing a logistics concept for an efficient collection of biogenous waste as input for energy recovery in biogas plants.
The basic organizational and technical conditions along with possible obstacles and critical success factors are investigated.
Establishment of a "Sustainability Label for repair-friendly constructed electr(on)ic household appliances (brown and white goods) as a shopping guideline for consumers"
The scope of the project comprises the development of criteria for a Sustainability Label for repair-friendly constructed appliances, marketing and PR activities with a focus on producers and consumers, training of auditors and labelling of at least one product.
Evaluation of mechanical class room ventilation systems in Austria and generation of a planning guideline
Accumulation of technical solutions and practical experience of schools (kindergarten) with mechanical ventilation systems and identification of how pupils and teachers accept the systems.
