IEA Wind Task 27: Small Wind Turbines in High Turbulence Sites

To ensure safety, reliability and productivity of small wind turbines (SWT) the experts of IEA Wind Task 27 developed a standard consumer label for small wind turbines. Since 2013 Task 27 is focussing on small wind turbines in high turbulence sites. By actively participating in the IEA Implementing Agreement Wind Energy Task 27, Austria’s stakeholders will become participants in the global small wind network. The establishment of a national working group as well as the organisation of an annual small wind conference in Austria will foster a durable collaboration and provide new impetus to the Austrian Small Wind Community.

IEA-IETS Annex 15: Industrial Excess Heat Recover (Phase 2)

In the framework of IEA IETS Annex 15 potentials of excess heat and technologies for their integration were collected from national research projects, bundled and elaborated on. This way, a broad knowledge base was built on experience gained in carrying out surveys for potential use of excess heat. Experiences with questionnaires, process integration tools and extrapolation of data using existing knowledge about the respective energy systems were exchanged. A process database with detailed process information could also be established, which can be used for further research activities. Also, in the area of policy instruments, recommendations for future measures to increase the use of surplus heat were derived on the basis of national contributions.
