Development of integrated concepts for multi-storey buildings, which enable renovations of buildings with high energy efficiency at good user acceptance during the realisation phase as well as afterwards (comfort, affordability). Relevant components: integrated solutions of roof and façade with high rate of pre-fabrication, the possibility of integrating the energy façade/roofs and energy distribution and supply.
The aim of the IEA ECES Annex 35 is to investigate and evaluate the potential of different storage technologies and configurations for the application to the sector coupling of electricity, heat and mobility sector and to draft recommendations for politics, research and industry based on the results.
The aim of Energy Conservation through Energy Storage (ECES) is to enable integrated research, development, implementation and integration of energy storage technologies in order to optimise the energy efficiency of all types of energy systems and to promote the use of renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels.
4E TCP promotes energy efficient end use equipment. It focuses on electric motor systems, electric household products, lighting, electronic devices and networks as well as power electronic conversion.
The Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme by the IEA enables collaborative research and development projects. Thematically, it focuses on integrating energy efficient and sustainable technologies in buildings and communities.
The objective of EOR TCP is to disseminate the results of research and development for efficient use of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The EOR TCP supports national efforts to reduce costs of existing technologies and to research new technologies to enhance reservoir oil recovery.
The IEA Experts Group (EGRD) was established by the Committee on Energy Research and Technology (CERT). It examines analytical approaches to energy technologies, policies, and research and development and evaluates the benefits of RTI policies. Its results and recommendations feed into IEA analysis, and enable a broad perspective of energy technology issues.
Overview of the current status of the fluidized bed technology worldwide in regards to energy technology.
The technology programme includes the collaboration, the exchange of relevant information and networking in the area of fluidized bed conversion of fuels applied for clean energy production.
The aim of the project is to continue and further develop the internationally very well accepted participation of Austria in the information network of the IEA Fluidized Bed Conversion (FBC) Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) to optimize fluidized bed conversion of fuels applied to clean energy production (heat and power). All stakeholders will be included on a national as well as on a global level.
The GHG programme funds research into technologies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It provides its members with information on the role that technology can take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The programmes’ focus is on CO2 capture and storage, or carbon sequestration.
The IEA Heat Pump Technologies programme develops and disseminates objective and balanced information on heat pumps, refrigeration technologies and air conditioning with the aim of exploiting the environmentally relevant and energetic potential of these technologies. This programme includes joint research projects, workshops, conferences and an information service (IEA Heat Pump Centre).
Test procedure and seasonal performance calculation for residential heat pumps with combined space heating and heating of tap water - IEA Heat Pump Program Annex 28
International cooperation aiming at widening the use of compact heat exchangers in heat pumping equipment. The goal of this project is to identify compact heat exchangers, either existing or under development, that may be applied in heat pumping equipment such as compression or absorption heat pumps.
A significant use of alternative heat sources with the help of district heating and cooling networks is a major challenge for a sustainable energy supply. In times of increasing shares of fluctuating producers such as PV and wind energy, the relevance of heat pumps increases. Within the framework of the IEA HPT Annex 47, potentials and barriers for the integration of heat pumps in DHC networks were analyzed.
The project aims at showing the potential of heat pumps for the energy supply of multi-family houses and providing a contribution to the elimination of market barriers. Concepts and innovative technological options of heat pumps will be analyzed making use of simulation and experiments. The results will be disseminated in international expert meetings and amongst national stakeholders.
The project aimed at investigating the performance and market potential of gas-fired absorption heat pumps (AHPs) in domestic and small commercial or industrial buildings or applications. Selected processes were simulated for various types of buildings in order to calculate the energetic, ecological and economical potential of this technology. The results were compared with monitoring data of a gas-fired AHP system. In addition, a market survey including market barriers for gas-fired AHPs in Austria was conducted and a list of market supporting measures was compiled.
A dominating concept to reach a nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) is the combination of solar PV systems and heat pumps. The extended scope of the Annex 49 regards the balance of single buildings and groups of buildings/neighbourhoods, a thorough investigation of heat pump integration options for nZEBs and nZE neighbourhoods by means of monitoring and simulation as well as the design and control optimization for heat pumps in nZEB and the integration into energy systems.
The project aims at enhancing the acceptance of heat pumps and removing market barriers by reducing acoustic noise emissions and vibrations. The project involves: innovative experimental laboratory work, various numerical approaches and preliminary work in context of uniform legal and normative boundary conditions. In addition, new assessment schemes are developed and perceptual tests are carried out.
The aim of the project is to record the current situation in the field of refrigerants with low Global Warming Potential (GWP). Within the framework of the Annex, the situation in Austria and Europe will be harmonised at international level. The focus of the national project is to survey the current situation in the field of the refrigerants used and to prepare an outlook until 2030 on the availability of components and systems for the use of new "low-GWP" refrigerants.
