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
Integration of aspects of sustainable investment into the training programme of selected financial service providers
Awareness raising and knowledge transfer by means of information processing and training of financial service providers concerning sustainable investment
Analysis of potentials as well as technical / economical and organisational solutions to integrate decentralised heating power production from renewables into existing fossil heating grids.
Portfolio of technologies and action plan for the integration of renewable energy sources for district heating in cities and for enhancing the total efficiency of the supply chain from energy input to energy service.
Integration of results of the program "Building of Tomorrow" into the established qualification program of energy counsellors and their daily consultancy activities
Preparing the results of the "Building of Tomorrow" program for energy counsellors by elaborating a material collection and integrating it into the basic education of energy counsellors. Furthermore a one-day training course for already active energy counsellors will be designed and held.
Simulation of optimal strategies to integrate wind energy in Austria and Germany under consideration of load management to maximize the resulting CO2-savings.
Intensified Density - a small scale densification strategy for the suburbs by using modular construction
In our project Intensified Density we would like to investigate whether a small scale densification strategy for the suburbs / intermediary cities, using modular construction, and existing infrastructure on empty plots of land, can offer a competing alternative to not only the sprawl of single family dwellings but also to large projects.
Summer school / workshop for design, construction and calculation of buildings in the passive house standard for students from Austrian and European universities.
A concept for a cooperative forest fuel supply chain network for a large part of Austria (regions of Salzburg, Upper Austria, Lower Austria, Vienna) is developed in order to minimise transport-, storage- and total system costs while simultaneously increasing supply guarantee for the plants.
The central aim of this international research cooperation is to make industrial processes accessible for solar thermal plants. To achieve this aim basic information is elaborated and components as well as system engineering concepts are developed. Furthermore the intention of Task 33/IV is to survey a detail state of the art in the field of solar process heat that has a validity for Europe. The work of JOANNEUM RESEARCH - Institute of Sustainable Techniques and Systems focuses mainly on the contents of Subtask B.
Itz Smart – Carbon neutral city district development Itzling – Implementing innovation and technology via co-operative process design
The goal of the project “Itz Smart” is to tie in with existing activities and to consistently develop Itzling as a residential location further. In the test and demonstration area, sustainable residential quarters with trendsetting solutions for mobility are developed in the zone of the transport axis (railway and Schillerstraße) and along the local supply axis (Itzlinger Hauptstraße). The consideration of housing and mobility with regard to the aspect of “city of short ways“ also entails a discussion of determined mixed utilisation and the development of such residential quarters.
Assessment of the potential for pre-commercial procurement in the Smart City energy sector in Austria in the areas of innovative building technologies, urban energy systems and systems for urban planning. The results will serve as the basis for recommendations for future priority setting for public procurers.
KELVIN - Reducing the urban heat island effect via improving the reflective properties of buildings and urban areas
The aim of this project was to estimate the potential to reduce urban heat islands via low-tech measures such as the variation of the surface albedo, using the City of Vienna as an example. The project has also assessed the energy savings and greenhouse gas emission reductions due to the decreased energy demand for cooling as a result of such measures.
Within the region of East-Styria a variety of so-called regional multifunctional energy centers have been designed for selected location which can be characterized by generating renewable energy and additional products or services. Identification of optimum set-up of energy centers. General recommendation for implementation.
Using the example of demonstrational renovation, Kierling (built between 1977 and 1979) tests the possibilities of a renovation in passive house standard in technical, organizational and financial terms as an outstanding example of a comprehensive renovation.
Know-How-Plus - Options and constraints of building renovation towards plus energy building standard
Aim of this research project is to identify the realizable reduction potential of energy consumption and CO2 emissions by refurbishment of the Austrian building stock towards plus energy building standard. Furthermore a construction-oriented manual will be supplied for interdisciplinary planning.
Pollen for medical applications can be sorted by special machines. An integrated database and a spectrometric calibration allow a precise separation of the species with an identification of the plant species.
