Sustainable services in co-operation with the housing sector will be investigated, their effects on environment, employment, acceptance by consumers, hindrances as well as prerequisites for sustainable facility management and a new positioning of concierge systems analysed.
The aim of this exploration study is to explore a possible systematic change that will allow for a more universal application of Hook-and-Loop (or similar) fasteners in the construction industry, especially in building installation phase.
The aim of the project is a functional test to determine whether an up-to-date data set of energy-oriented data can be collected for neighbourhood planning through gamification, cost-efficiently, quickly and reliably. This will be determined using the example of the potential determination of industrial and commercial waste heat sources in Vienna and Graz.
By deviding the 4 phases of the biogas production in 2 steps and an optimised measurement and control technique the stability of the process, the amount of methane and the efficency of biogas plants is increased.
Renewable hydrogen in Austria: Future perspectives for the production and use of hydrogen from renewable energy in Austria with the identification of projects to demonstrate the role of renewable hydrogen in an efficient and flexible energy system.
IDsolutions - Solutions for the refurbishment within existing building stock with interior insulation
The refurbishment of existing building stock demands solutions within single units. Interior insulation is a suitable technology. The challenge is to bring multiple demands and requirements together to create optimal solutions. Therefore it's necessary to arrange individual system components to form working model refurbishment solutions. The development of such solutions is the aim of the project. Not only durability and quality is to be ensured, but also user acceptance. Increasing the rate of refurbishments is the overall aim of the project.
The AMF TCP's vision is a sustainable transport system that uses advanced, alternative, and renewable fuels; has low emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and air pollutants; and meets needs for personal mobility and mobility of goods. AMF provides a solid basis for decision making in form of information and recommendations as well as an international forum for sharing best practices and pooling resources for the achievement of this vision.
The vision of the Technology Collaboration Programme on Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (HEV TCP) is that the electric drive will be used as the predominant transportation mode in a sustainable transport system that is preferably powered by renewable energy and does not produce harmful emissions.
IEA 4E Annex Electronic Devices and Networks Annex - EDNA (working period 2017 – 2019) Task 3: "Intelligent efficiency". Project: "Basket of products testing"
The goal is the active participation and the representation of the Austrian position and interests in EDNA as well as exchange with and dissemination of results. Further, Austria shall contribute to Task 3 “Intelligent Effficiency” (IE) and the project “Basket of products testing”, in the form of documented measurements of the energy demand of selected products in network standby mode. Austria collaborates with Switzerland on two concept papers, namely „IoT as enabler“ and „Energy harvesting technolgies“. Two further concept papers on the topics “Energy monitoring systems” and “Efficiency of e-vehicle charging” will be prepared by Austria and brought to the EDNA working plan.
Promotion of energy efficiency of poly-phase electric AC motors and motor systems in relevant applications as pumps, fans, compressors and mechanical drives that are generally used in industry, infrastructure and large buildings. This work also included new technologies such as frequency inverters (adjustable speed drive) and permanent magnet motors.
In the Mapping and Benchmarking work (formerly M&B Annex) the following product were analyzed: domestic refrigeration (update), dishwashers, settop boxes, transformers and lights, for which this report includes most relevant results and the related M&B publications. It also introduces the 2015-2016 work on motors, liquid chillers, and water boilers.
The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is planned as a new Annex to the IEA 4E TCP. PECTA shall assess the efficiency benefit of using the emerging WBG technology. PECTA will serve as base for policy makers and independent knowledge platform for all different types of stakeholders and all kind of parties interested in efficiency potential and integration of WBG.
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 Guidelines for Electric Motor Systems“ and recommendations for carrying out energy audits for motor systems based on international standards Austria will analyse the impact of industrial automation on electricity consumption and the motor market.
Task 31 was a research and development oriented Task with the objective to contribute to the identification and development of techniques and materials to reduce the cost and improve the durability of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs).

The main objective of Annex 33 “Stationary Applications” is to push the technology development of key components and systems. Market implementation and transformation will be supported by the analysis and development of the necessary political framework and instruments. The current technological, economic and political barriers are to be identified, solutions developed and the barriers gradually broken down. The Austrian Energy Agency represents Austria in Annex 33 - Stationary applications.
The aim of Annex 35 is the information exchange on the status and new developments of portable fuel cell systems and comprises the development and manufacture of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) all the way through to system components such as electronic converters or gas supply units. In addition the setup and configuration of hybridized systems and the key topics of secure operation, codes and standards are of interest.
The aim of Annex 35 of Technology Collaboration Programm on Advanced Fuel Cells of the International Energy Agency (IEA) included information exchange on the status and new developments of portable fuel cell systems such as the direct ethanol fuel cell (DEFC) and the direct borohydride fuel cell (DBFC) and comprised the development and manufacture of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) all the way through to system components such as electronic converters or gas supply units.
The main goal of the IEA Advanced Fuel Cells programme is to enhance the technology development of key components and systems of fuel cells; furthermore to prepare the market implementation of fuel cells by analysis/development of the necessary policy frame work (incl. necessary instruments) and the elimination of existing barriers.
