IEA HPT Annex 60: Retrofitting Heat Pump Systems in Large Non-domestic Buildings
Lack of knowledge about retrofit options with heat pumps currently hinders the widespread use of the technology in non-residential buildings. In this project, easy-to-use, accessible recommendations for techno-economically optimised planning / design of heat pump applications in hospitals, shopping centres, industrial buildings, educational institutions, and museums will be developed and communicated to relevant target groups in the form of guidelines and training courses.
IEA HPT Annex 61: Heat Pumps in Positive Energy Districts
IEA HPT Annex 61 evaluates the role of heat pumps (HP) in positive energy districts (PED). Efficiency potentials of the electric and thermal energy of districts that can be unlocked with the use of HPs are evaluated in order to reach a positive energy balance. This refers to both, upgrade of waste heat and simultaneous generation of different energy use in buildings (space heating, DHW, space cooling/dehumidification) and includes self-consumption of on-site renewable electricity generation.
IEA HPT Annex 63: Impact of heat pump placement on noise emissions
Noise emissions from heat pumps are a potential barrier for broad market diffusion of this energy efficiency technology, especially in urban areas. In this project, the influences of noise emissions in the building and in the neighbourhood are characterised, their psychoacoustic effects are analysed in more detail, and tools for digitally supporting heat pump placement are further developed. The results will be presented to relevant target groups in the form of guidelines and other documentation.
IEA HPT Task 41: Cold Climate Heat Pumps
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.

Different circuit modifications were modelled and simulation studies for low ambient temperatures were carried out.
IEA HPT Task 42: Heat pumps in smart energy grids for sustainable cities
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 IEA Heat Pump Technologies programme develops and disseminates objective and balanced information on heat pumps, refrigeration technologies and air conditioning with the aim of exploiting the environmentally relevant and energetic potential of these technologies. This programme includes joint research projects, workshops, conferences and an information service (IEA Heat Pump Centre).
IEA Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technology Collaboration Programme (HEV-TCP)
The Technology Collaboration Programme on Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (HEV TCP) vision is that the electric drivetrain will be used as the predominant transportation mode in a sustainable transport system that is preferably powered by renewable energy and does not produce harmful emissions.
IEA Hydrogen (Hydrogen TCP)
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.
IEA Hydrogen Task 41: Data and Modelling
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: Industrial Biorefineries (Working period 2020-2022)
IEA IETS Annex 11 pursues the goal of developing industrial solutions to achieve extensive decarbonization of various energy sectors through integrated biorefineries.

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: Membrane processes in biorefineries (Working period 2020 - 2022)
Overarching goal of IEA IETS TCP Annex 17 was to strengthen the network of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery landscape. The aim was the optimized use of lignocellulose material in biorefineries by using efficient and sustainable membrane technologies. For this purpose, emerging membrane technologies were evaluated towards applications for biomass components valorization and a guidance on integration possibilities of emerging membrane technologies was developed.

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.
IEA IETS Task 11: Industrial Biorefineries (Working period 2022-2024)
Biorefineries producing a portfolio of biobased products or bioenergy are the backbone of the growing bioeconomy. IEA IETS Task 11 aims to minimize greenhouse gas emissions to net zero along different biorefinery pathways. Tools and methodologies for increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies are to be summarized and disseminated to relevant target groups.
IEA IETS Task 17: Membrane processes in biorefineries (Working period 2023 - 2025)
Biorefineries are essential for the transition from petroleum- to a biobased industry. The use of biomass as raw material for recyclable materials, chemicals and energy sources is essential and requires efficient and sustainable production processes. This project aims to strengthen national and international know-how transfer between research and development for membrane-based processes in biorefineries. The focus is on application, improvement and innovation in all aspects of membrane distillation.
IEA IETS Task 21 Decarbonizing industrial systems in a circular economy framework
Energy and CO2 savings through circular economy, especially directly through carbon circularity (CCU), and resource and energy efficiency through industrial symbiosis are two key approaches to decarbonizing industry.
IEA ISGAN Annex 3: Benefit/Cost Analyses and Tools of Smart Grids
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.
