(energy central 400+) Marketable energy central from 400 kW with innovative, simple electricity conversion for residential building, public utility and commercial objects
Development of a marketable, decentralised "energy central" on a scale from 400 kW for the generation of electricity, heating (and cooling) for residential building, public utility and commercial objects, with a broad variety of applicable fuels on the base of regionally available biogenous residual materials.
2nd documentation period of the joint project of IG Passivhaus Österreich under the programme line "Building of tomorrow", an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) to set up a detailed network documentation on a representative cross-section of all passive houses in Austria.
3rd documentation period of the joint project of IG Passivhaus Österreich to set up a detailed network documentation on a representative cross-section of all passive houses in Austria.
Development of a cost-efficient all-in façade greening system („Greening-Toolkit“) including a maintenance concept, involving all trades and processes, for a broad (facing roads) implementation on facades in the urban built environment, combined with a process innovation for simplification of all necessary coordination processes.
The present project aims to close the gap between specialist consultants and Building Information Modeling (BIM) applications. For that, relevant data for cost estimation, scheduling construction planning and management or sustainable building operation and facility management, shall be added automatically to BIM elements and imported into the respective specialist planning software. This data exchange shall be carried out using IFC interface according to ÖNORM A6241-2 and the properties of the ASI properties server via a central platform, the "6D BIM-Terminal".
ABC - DisposaL - Assessment of Building and Construction - Disposal LCA Indicators for the disposal performance of construction
A framework of assessment for the disposal of building materials, constructions and buildings will be developed. The results will be included in the OI3-indicator and in the building assessment tool Total Quality Building. Demonstration projects of the programme Building of Tomorrow will be assessed with the new method.
AC/DC Office Buildings - Implementation of Electricity Networks with Alternating and Direct Current in Office Buildings - Feasibility and Energy Efficiency Potentials
Based on a literature and technology review this projects aimed to document and demonstrate already available and reasonable concepts for the implementation of electricity networks with alternating and direct current in modern office buildings. Focus of the study was to assess the feasibility in general and the energy efficiency potential in particular but it also documents necessary technical equipment and expected advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, important research questions for energy supply, energy distribution and application of direct current technologies were formulated.
AGelFa - Development of surface structurable final-coating stucco systems on high-performance heat-insulating aerogel insulation plaster for historic building facades.
High-performance insulating plaster systems represent an important option toward improving the thermal insulation of historic buildings without changing their physical appearance. The high-performance aerogel insulation plaster has recently become available for deployment. In this context, the present will explore final stucco systems suitable for building with structured surfaces.
The AIDA project aimed to increase the number of nearly-zero-energy-buildings, the number of building professionals trained on integrated energy design and the number of municipalities starting to build/refurbish buildings to nZEB levels.
The aim of this research project is the development of a construction site-suitable augmented reality (AR) system included a Remote-Expert-System and a BIM-Closed-Loop data transfer system for improving the quality of construction, building security and energy efficiency as well as increasing the efficiency of construction investigation.
AR-HES-B – Energy storage, production and recovery of valuable substances in wastewater treatment plants
AR-HES-B develops technologically based concepts of municipal wastewater treatment plants in order to convert them from energy consumers into a hybrid energy provider, energy storage and a provider of resources. The concept enables wastewater plants to turn into an important platform in the regional energy and mass transfer.
ARIS - Application of non-linear control engineering and implementation of intelligent sensor systems for the improvements of energy efficiency in the building sector
The major goal of the project was the development of innovative control concepts for controlling and optimizing heating, cooling and ventilation systems (HVAC) as well as building loads. The implementation of advanced, energy efficient non-linear control techniques in building management systems is supported by new sensor technologies that are applied to building and energy systems in order to improve their energy-efficient operation.
Active know-how-transfer sustainable building with renewable raw materials - lecture in theory and practice at the Technical University of Vienna
Lecture "Sustainable Building with Renewable Resources" focusing on theoretical and practical knowledge of straw bale building and including relevant research results of "Building of Tomorrow "
Active operation of electrical distribution networks with high share of decentralised power generation
Conceptual design, preparation and development networks areas with active grid operation and a high share of distributed generation. Create the premises for the implementation of innovative demonstration networks by involving of all relevant players.
By additive use of actuators in combination of adaptive algorithms a multi-functional logic for fine dust reduction in thermal gasification boiler systems for wood-combustion has to be developed in the context of a thesis at the TU-Graz.
Adjustment of the value chain in the mass-shoe-production to customized production by unitized products and processes
Main topic of the project is the incremental change of business logics in mass shoe production by changing product-push to customer-pull concepts. Results need to integrate the entire supply chain, add value to the brand and its products and contribute to the company's sustainability.
Development and testing of processes to produce adsorptive materials from agricultural residues of corn production with focus on corn cob grit as oil bonding agent (e.g., applicable to the remediation of oil spills).
Genotypes of energy plants adapted to the location will be identified and specialist crop rotation adapted to the location will be developed. The fermentation process will be optimised and the methane energy model will be advanced. The efficiency of the biogas production will be enhanced.
Agriculture will become an important supplier of sustainable energy services for society. However, this sector can only fulfil this role if it operates on the base of sustainable energy provision itself. The project will determine the necessary measures to achieve this state for a concrete regional setting (eastern Styria) by the year 2020.
