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.
Evaluation of solar-thermal energy stores using a uniform and marketable system of characteristic numbers
Comparison of solar-thermal energy stores A clear and uniform system of characteristic numbers enables a cost-saving comparison of the efficiency of solar-thermal energy stores of different technologies for the first time and gives important impulses for the market.
In the passive house Utendorfgasse a room–by-room temperature control was installed in 11 apartments. The experiences were evaluated from a technological and from a sociological point of view.
The aim of this project is to show that even at first glance unrealistic and seemingly unworkable solutions can contribute to overcome or mitigate increasingly global problems. The keywords "smart city", "smart home" (and similar ones) require solutions that are envisioned on free roads, as off-the-shelf solution often do not deliver the required output.
Under the project "Building of tomorrow live" over a year long several excursions to "Building of tomorrow" demonstration projects and other passive houses were organised. Sightseeing opportunities were surveyed, updated several times and published on the web.
The aim of the exhibition is to show the compatibility of the building quality standard "Passive House-Standard" with the requirements of the best architectural design with well-chosen examples and explanations. In this way these Austrian cultural and technical achievements shall be made more public.
Exploration of window systems with innovative glass - especially vacuum insulating glass - for building renovation
Exploration of the use of the first fabricable highly insulating vacuum glazing (VG) for highly efficient window systems specifically for the renovation of existing buildings via Verification of the availability and performance of Vacuum Glazing VG worldwide, concepts for structural optimization and thermal simulations of integrated systems, investigation of typical applications and market potential studies and identification of achievable energy savings for single buildings and settlements.
As a contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the project aims at upgrading existing heating networks by adding new devices, so-called exergy trafos, to the heat-exchanging transfer stations. These are driven by district heat and provide heating and cooling, as well as a reduced return temperature, as a service.
Preparation for the EU Urban Mission by updating goals and strategies (Smart City Wien Framework strategy, Climate-Roadmap), developing a manual for climate-neutral Viennese neighbourhoods and concepts for the participation of citizens (Climate Citizens' Council) and businesses (Climate Agreements), as well as a city-internal capacity and structural planning.
FABRIKregio - Development, test and spreading of models for the self-evaluation of sustainability at enterprise level under special consideration of regional successful factors
The project provides enterprises with a new self-evaluation model, which serves the purpose to support sustainable decisions. Focal point and innovation are: more active participation of the employees and better consideration of regional economic factors for success.
Development of technique and components for the production of back ventilation-free thermal flat collectors.
Analysis of technical, economical and regulatory conditions to get fair terms under competition in the liberalised market for virtual power plants on renewable energy basis.
Feasibility concept for a customer-focused and resource-efficient production of wood-products, considering a parquet factory as an example
An innovative approach aiming higher resource-efficiency and added value by using new quality standards and production systems in parquet industry. A customer friendly product will be possible by combining industrial production methods with the flexibilty of a manufacture.
Feasibility concept for the extensive implementation of information systems on Geographic basis in forest associations
The introduction of spacious information systems on GIS basis (geographical information system) in the forest federations of Austria and Bavaria is examined. This offers for the first time the possibility to connect biological and technical characteristics (attributes) with geographical data to compensate for the disadvantages of small structured forest estates. A substantial goal is also the development of a scanner method for the automated, EDP-supported identification of forests and their most important ground and stock characteristics.
A feasibility study of innovative absorption heat pump processes for strategic orientation and further development of heat pumping technology and its applications.
Method for assessment of technological aspects of biogas supply to existing gas grids. Definition of characteristic numbers for quantitative an qualitative analysis. Aspects of systems integration.
User behavior is a key factor for the energy consumption and the actual energetic performance of a building. A new type of user feedback system will be investigated in this research project. Users provide feedback on the sensed room quality. The data obtained by the feedback system are used to optimize settings of building services in order to improve the energy efficiency and the comfort in the building. A basic proof of concept of this system will be undertaken by means of two use cases.
In the course of the project FFF-TaliSys novel daylighting systems based on freeform surface technology were developed and implemented into functional models, thus, innovative systems that solve the contradictory requirements of daylighting systems.
Developing of suitable bonding agents, fibres and processing technologies for the production of form stable fibre composites made of natural components. Production of prototypes like boards and moulded parts. Material testing.
A virtual biomass plant comprising 30 micro-CHP-Modules, each of them integrated into an existing pellets-boiler in the Austrian region of eastern Styria is to be tested. The goal of this project is to gain experience and to introduce a new sustainable technology.
