The new office building (headquarter) of Windkraft Simonsfeld AG in Ernstbrunn (Lower Austria) is planned as a plus energy building. From this excellent starting conditions it is intended to make seven more steps to explore innovative options for energy plus buildings.
Online reference for ecologically rated building construction details suitable for achieving Passivhaus standard
An already well-established web database management system is being adapted to present the contents of a catalogue of building elements for the Passivhaus standard. A wider distribution of the contents and future extensions of the catalogue by distributed workgroups are the promises of the project.
Instruments and Strategies for the involvement of users and other relevant social groups in the design process: the example of fuel cell technology in end-user markets and wood-plastic composites.
Development of an optimal strategy to open up Austria's biomass potential until the year 2050. The optimal strategy maximizes the reduction of GHG emissions. Provision of an action plan for a temporal dynamic implementation of this strategy.
How much energy does a passive house actually save? Does a passive house pay-off by itself? What are the costs for maintancence? For the first time an approximation for the running costs of a passive house were systematically documented and compared.
OptiMAS Optimization of building energy efficiency through model-based energy flow analysis with non-invasive sensors
Using a model-based energy flow analysis supported by non-invasive sensor technologies OptiMAS investigates how to monitor, analyze and optimize existing buildings independent of the installed HVAC systems and automation components. With the OptiMAS approach the optimization potential of individual buildings up to entire areas can be detected, located and tapped by adjustment of system parameters to ensure highest energy and resource efficiency.
Optimisation of ecological construction components for industrial serial production of precast elements
The project focused on passive house elements from straw and clay. Special interest was paid at a novel straw insulation as well as at an efficient drying process of the clay. Sustainability of the building materials was a very important aspect within the project.
Technological and economic analysis and suggestions for the continual improvement of logistics for the supply and disposal of material at biogas plants.
Selection and development of wheat and triticale cultivars particularly suitable for the requirements of bio-ethanol production also taking into account agronomic needs and properties, feed quality of mash and toxicologic aspects.
The biogas production from energy crops will be analyzed and optimized. Energy crops are grown in an environmentally friendly and sustainable crop rotation system. The project provides a secure basis of data for the biogas production and utilisation. Farmers will invest more into the biogas technology.
Creating all the necessary fundamentals for a future standard in funding the "SMEs of the future" with private equity in order to close the money gap of these companies by providing "green money".
Based on the results of the concept "Energy-self-sufficient district Güssing", in this project feasibility studies for a self-sufficient energy- (model) -system on the basis of regional renewable energy sources in the district Güssing will be elaborated. Thereby the second step towards implementation will be done.
The necessary efficiency of modern energy-self-sufficient buildings can only be achieved with intelligent control of the key parameters. The main focus of the project is the adaptation of optical sensor concepts for application in building technology. The future goal of the project is to supply the modern energy-plus-house with an appropriate and intelligent control device to minimize energy loss.
Conception and implementation of a multfunctional energy - centre considering as exemple "Model Güssing", where different possibilities concerning the production- and consumerside are optimised together in order to achieve the aim of an energy - self-sustaining community Deutschlandsberg.
Developement of a concept of "service ozone as a special gas" has the main reason to support the chemical industrie, laboratories and others to substitute chemical oxidatives, which is a big ökological advantage.
P2H-Pot has identified economically feasible potentials for Power-to-Heat (P2H) in urban regions. The suitability of different technical system configurations were investigated using thermodynamic simulation and considering experiences from Scandinavian cases. The assessment of short, medium and long term relevance and economic feasibility of P2H were accomplished by simulating model-based scenarios up to 2050 of the Austrian and German electricity and heat market. In cooperation with a district heating company three case studies have been carried out.
The project deals with applications optimizing the self-consumption of PV-generated energy within urban quarters by enabling peer-to-peer relations among energy prosumers based on blockchain technology. The aim is to develop and validate these applications in the field being used by consumers.
The energy demand calculated in the design phase often differs from measured values in the actual building operation. This projects reviews building automation and operation by presenting a solution how to assess energy efficiency of control strategies in the fields of air conditioning systems, concrete core activation and free cooling. The results are implemented in the demonstration building "Post am Rochus".
An integrated technical energy plus office concept without additional building costs demonstrates the feasibility of such projects instancing a concrete office project with 50.000 m² floor area in Vienna with economical cost consideration.
Analysis of different options for the use of industrial surplus energies of various shapes (waste heat, waste water, waste) and renewable energy sources in the industrial sector (e.g. solar panels on roof surfaces) in adjacent urban areas, which act as an "energy sponge". Based on real consumption and availability data, a simulation model was created and opportunities for synergies were documented.
