Development and coordination of indicators for energy and ecological evaluations of urban areas based on the Swiss 2000-Watt certification system. The results will be used for the development of a quality assurance system for urban areas similar to the klimaaktiv declaration for buildings and the e5 certification for communities.
Set of social sustainability indicators, oriented at practice needs, and concept for their use in energy strategy processes, regional energy concepts, planning and operation of plants generating renewable energy
Information systems for ecological industry clusters - Case study industrial region Mödling (Lower Austria)
Development of a comprehensive, transparent and user-friendly concept of enhanced interlinkage of material and energy flows through increased information exchange and shows the resulting pollution reducing in conjunction with economic benefits for the companies.
InnoGOK – Investigation of the energetic and ecological usability of solar radiation on urban spaces and paths
Examination of the suitability of street space or other paved or not paved surfaces in urban areas for promoting renewable heat from solar radiation. Thus offers a high potential for increasing energy efficiency and conserving resources in urban contexts. Besides, the dissipation of heat from large solar-heated surfaces promises to prevent urban heat islands.
Innovation & Cost efficiency: Building standards for multi family residential buildings at optimal cost (Inno-Cost)
In this project, innovative building standards were examined concerning their economical aspects through the life cycle of a building. By means of life cycle-costs for 40-50 multi family lowest energy and passive house residential buildings on actual data from the day-to-day operation, reliable data and know-how was compiled for the first time, which is to support further market penetration of innovative building standards in the field of multi family residential buildings.
Concepts for enhancing in-house innovation in construction; development of performance and benchmarking indicators in the housing sector. Economic proposals to improve legal and structural business environment and to increase sustainable and energy efficient construction and renovation activities.
The Innovation Lab act4energy is set up as an innovation laboratory project. Its focus is to solve the problems of renewable energies integration with a focus on photovoltaic power paired with local consumption, linked to the the high fluctuation of renewable energies.
In liberalized grids the requirements for pumped storage equipment rise dramatically. The development of a controllable pump turbine to help stabilize the grid is one of the possible solutions to this problem.
Systematic reduction of THG in the sector trade and industry through market economical energy services. Research project to improve the energy efficiency of the end user as well as the integration and utilization of renewable energy in the energy service models.
Securing the future of low-emissions wood-burning furnaces in a range up to 1000 kW by using innovative filtering technology (which is also attractive in terms of economic efficiency) to nearly completely eliminate fine dust emissions.
Research and development of the possibility of a "sensorless" regulation for thermal solar systems
Innovative system for decentralized CHP on basis of biomass gasification with process optimized production of a low-tar producer gas
Tar loads in the producer gas of CHP-plants based on biomass gasification are reduced by primary measures (staged gasification), whereby the possibilities for application are increased.
Innovative technology for the treatment of municipal and industrial waste water and process waters (INNOWATEC)
Evaluation of a technology as a supporting module for process water and waste water treatment and testing in laboratory and pilot tests for specific fields of application in operational water management.
Industrial waste heat is predominantly instationary. Thus utilisation of industrial waste heat in district heating systems is constrained. A database and an evaluation methodology were developed to support increased utilisation of this heat source.
Development of the production technology for cattail insulating materials. Basis study to the feasibility of a serial production.
An integral control network for optimizing the resource "electrical energy". Concept for new, innovative services for the power market based on the latest advances in the field of modern information- and communication technologies.
A robust, distributed control network for optimizing the resource "electrical energy". Consumers, producers and storages network in a self-organized way and coordinate autonomously their usage of electrical energy. Load-shaping, transparent flow of information, system-wide increase in efficiency.
Integrated Service Models for increased resource-efficiency in the business-to-business sector (INERIWI)
For the major resource intensive commercial sectors the real function of products will be ana-lysed and elaborated how to provide the function of the product without selling it. Based on the present material intensity of the branches the potential reduction of environmental burden by applying such models as well as economic and social implications will be deduced.
The aim of the project was to assess which forms and conditions of interaction can foster the integration of higher shares of distributed generation into the Austrian electricity grid.
The project aims at the development of integration methods for solar heat into industrial production process with batch operations as typical for SMEs
