Industrial heat pumps, especially high temperature heat pumps with useful temperatures higher than 100°C, are a central element in the future energy system. In order to increase the application of high temperature heat pumps in industry, this project will provide an overview of the technological possibilities up to the procurement process of high temperature heat pumps. This should increase the understanding of the technology and its potential and reduce existing market barriers.
The aim was to increase the efficiency of outdoor air heat pumps in cold climates in locations with low outside temperatures of up to -25°C. Newly developed heat exchanger concepts were tested and optimized regarding their icing behaviour. Different circuit modifications were modelled and simulation studies for low ambient temperatures were carried out.
The aim of Annex 42 is to analyse the technical possibilities as well as the economic/regulatory framework conditions of heat pumps for load balancing in smart grids, which are largely controlled by electricity supplier, and to investigate the impact on thermal consumers and possible potentials, in order to work out economic incentive models for load shifting and the benefits for energy supply companies and end customers on this basis.
The Hydrogen TCP aims to accelerate deployment and use of hydrogen technologies by carrying out and co-ordinating collaborative activities of analysis, applied research and communication.
In IEA Hydrogen Task 41, the TIMES Austria model of the Austrian Energy Agency and the experiences from the showcase energy region WIVA P&G will be brought into the international cooperation of modellers.
IEA IETS Annex 11 pursues the goal of developing industrial solutions to achieve extensive decarbonization of various energy sectors through integrated biorefineries. Decision-making tools will be developed to support industry in the development of sustainable bio-economy strategies and to focus on reducing of GHG emissions.
Within the framework of the IEA IETS Annex 15 - Phase 3, potentials for the use of waste heat as well as technologies for its integration are collected, bundled and processed through contributions from national research activities. The aim of the project is to identify potential collaborations in an international context and to network knowledge from the individual national research activities. Newly gained knowledge is disseminated nationally, e.g. in the course of a stakeholder workshop, and integrated into ongoing research activities.
IEA IETS Annex 17: Membrane filtration for energy-efficient separation of lignocellulosic biomass components
The overarching goal of IEA IETS TCP Annex 17 is to strengthen the network of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery landscape.
IEA IETS Annex 17 aims at the networking of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery research landscape as well as an intensified exchange with the international consortium from the IETS Annex XVII "Extension - Membrane processes in biorefineries". Optimised raw material utilisation in biorefineries is to be addressed by energy- and cost-efficient membrane technologies. Various emerging membrane processes are evaluated, optimized and integration concepts are developed.
IEA IETS Annex 18: Digitalization, artificial intelligence and related technologies for energy efficiency and reduction of GHG emissions in industry
Annex 18 Task 2 provides an overview of the methods, applications and requirements of digital twins in different industrial sectors. The focus is on relevant solutions for improving energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions. The potential of these solutions is evaluated and business cases and recommendations for action are developed. The interdisciplinarity and the international consortium enable the development of a network of experts from research and industry.
The Industrial Energy-Related Technology Programme (IETS) focuses on energy use in a broad range of industry sectors. It fosters international co-operation amongst relevant research strands, networking within and across industrial sectors, as well as exchange of information and knowledge between experts from industry, science and politics.
IEA International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) Annex 6 on Power T&D Systems. Working period 2015 - 2016.
The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) aims in enhancing the knowledge about Smart Grid Technologies and accelerating the development and the international deployment. The main objective of the Austrian contribution in IEA ISGAN Annex 6 is to build up knowledge and long term concepts for the development of an intelligent and integrated electricity system, with the focus on the interaction of distribution and transmission networks, including the lead of the related subtask within the Annex.
Together with experts from 11 countries, the EI-JKU has analysed cost-benefit models and developed proposals for their adaptation and further development. In the course of the work, the EI-JKU dealt in particular with two questions: how such an evaluation model can be adapted to Austrian conditions and which socio-economic factors influence the question of whether an end consumer emerges as a winner or loser from Smart Grid-based functionalities.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2013-2018)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. By active participation, Austria’s position and leading role on the forefront of international Smart Grids development has been strengthened.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2019-2020)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at creating and sharing a comprehensive knowledge-base of smart grid testing facilities, test beds and important demonstration projects. Furthermore the project seeks to improve current smart grid testing and evaluation capabilities and to establish a framework for stakeholders to gain from sharing nonproprietary results, advice and assistance.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2021-2022)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. In the working period 2021-2022, the focus will be laid on the development of extended interoperability tests for decentralised energy resources and micro grids.
ISGAN Annex 6 deals with the possible system-related challenges in the development of future smart grids. Austria is leading Task 4 Interaction of Transmission and Distribution Networks. The main topic in the current work program relates to flexibility topologies within transmission and distribution grids. The results and analyses will be published on the one hand in a discussion paper and in condensed form in a video. Communication and dissemination activities will be targeted and conducted to different stakeholder groups.
ISGAN aims at enhancing the knowledge about Smart Grid Technologies and accelerating their international development. In this project, relevant findings from technical-scientific projects as well as successful approaches from national and international projects on the topic of interaction between transmission and distribution system operators were collected and analyzed.
