Maize cobs accrue as an agricultural by-product can be used for a core material of light weight panels with good material properties and insulation characteristics. The aim was to work out a concept for the production and optimisation of material properties.
Manage_GeoCity - Development of a method for the coordinated management of geothermal energy in urban areas
Based on the urban region Graz a method had been developed for the coordinated use and management of shallow geothermal energy for heating and cooling as well as seasonal heat storage in urban regions. Ground water flow, different geologic conditions, heating and cooling demand, heat input from solar collectors and industrial waste heat and the possibilities of seasonal heat storage in the subsurface were considered.
ARAFIT develops a concept for the regional management of the loads of public water treatment plants in a partnership of planners, operators and major water consumers following the idea of sustainable least cost planning resulting in efficient, flexible and future oriented regional infrastructure.
Compilation of the manual to realise initiatives for energy regions of tomorrow; integrating the experiences generated in the winner projects, outcomes of representative energy-projects and the know-how of scientific works; distribution by multiplicators, realization of distribution activities
The intention of this project was to visualize the current activities of the IEA Energy Technology Network and to identify possible gaps and overlaps. The mapping includes 185 ongoing tasks and annexes (Status September 2017).
Concept for launching of a new business unit or an independent ROI-Contracting Consulting with effects on sustainable development.
Mechanical processing of the non-reusable part of collected end-of-life apparels (e.g. cutting, sifting, etc.); development of marketable application for the obtained short fibers in the field of construction materials (e.g. bitumen modification)
Analysis and implementation of alternative ventilation systems for windows, focusing on thermal renovation of old buildings. The investigated ventilation systems were presented to an expert group. The aim was to discuss ventilation technologies with the help of different aspects and to develop a SWOT analysis.
MehrWertStrom 2030 - PV-Community system- Exploring a participatory pilot project with regional added value for structurally weak regions
The "MehrWertStrom 2030" project analysis the legal, technical, organizational and economic feasibility of PV community joint venture facilities on multi-party buildings including the added value for structurally weak regions and will develop innovative solutions related to organization, financing and realization.
Methodical optimisation of biogas plants based on strategic learning from realised plants and projects.
Methodical optimisation of biogas plants based on the preparation and presentation of affirmative experiences and mistakes from the realisation of plants in the past. Combination of experiences from different industrial sectors (designer of plants, assemblers, consulters and operators)
Development of a mobile and modular thermally-driven-cooling-system for cooling powers ranging from 17 to 210 kW. The driving heat is provided by solar collectors and a biomass boiler. For research purposes a cooling systems (70 kW) will be installed in Gleisdorf where the company EnergyCabin is located.
A robust, predictive controller which utilises weather forecast data to control thermally active building systems had been designed, researched and assessed in terms of energy efficiency and comfort compared to standard controllers, especially for cooling purposes. Simulations and real measurements using two "Test-Boxes" with thermally active building systems which are constructed and built for this purpose were used to analyse energy efficiency and comfort. Low complexity and transparency of methods and solutions should allow for transferability of all results to guarantee maximum usability for similar applications.
Concerning to an accurate and adaptable construction of 2 to 4 storey solid timber houses with the characteristics of a passive house, a digital construction and dimension system will be developed. The system which contains standardised modular ecological detailed solutions enables an exact dimensioning and installation of passive houses by small carpentering companies.
In course of the monitoring project the effectiveness of the energy-technical system was checked on the basis of running measuring data. The data were evaluated and, if required, the arrangements and settings of the control system were adapted. Main result is that the energy balance could have been improved explicitly whilst the monitoring process.
This study uses several data sources to analyze the effects of the research programe "Haus der Zukunft" ("Building of Tomorrow") on the Austrian housebuilding industry and the built environment.
Based on the results of the national-funded exploratory projects called “Smart Exergy Leoben”, and “Energy Sponge Bruck”, the present implementation project aims at analysing how local, renewable resources support the supply of electric mobility in Leoben in the long term and to integrate it into the municipal distribution grid in a good economic sense.
In the frame of the project a classification system for Smart City Technologies had beed developed, the relevance of a wide range of technologies in terms of their potential contribution to the development of sustainable and more resilient cities with a high quality of life had beed evaluated and a comprehensive classification of the technical maturity of relevant technologies, technical (sub-)systems and technology-related services had been given.
Multi-Activ-Facade is a pre-manufactured, multifunctional panellised façade, which incorporates ventilation with heat recovery, passive house windows and photovoltaic for smart self-supply within retrofitting measures. The specific challenge is the application within social housing.
The multi-purpose apparatus is cheaper and requires less material and space. Less power consumption because of utilistion of the cyclone vortex in the induced draft fan.
