Increasing of the resources-efficiency by experimental optimisation of steam production and by reduction of production residues in a metal-processing factory
The project is based on the results of the currently running project "Use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in a metal-processing factory". In this project it was found, that nearly the half of the consumption of natural gas is needed for steam production. Based on calculations already carried out, it is planned to investigate experimentally the possibilities of increasing the resource-efficiency by lowering the steam temperature and by replacing steam by hot water. Further increasing of resource-efficiency shall be achieved by use of internal residues as an additional fuel in a solid fuel furnace.
Development and coordination of indicators for energy and ecological evaluations of urban areas based on the Swiss 2000-Watt certification system. The results will be used for the development of a quality assurance system for urban areas similar to the klimaaktiv declaration for buildings and the e5 certification for communities.
Set of social sustainability indicators, oriented at practice needs, and concept for their use in energy strategy processes, regional energy concepts, planning and operation of plants generating renewable energy
The goal of the INFINITE-project is to lay the foundations for a more wide-spread implementation of urban energy supply systems across buildings, using renewable energy sources produced in local supply units. At the same time the projects supports to reduce the demand for fossil fuels and higher-level energy infrastructure.
Information systems for ecological industry clusters - Case study industrial region Mödling (Lower Austria)
Development of a comprehensive, transparent and user-friendly concept of enhanced interlinkage of material and energy flows through increased information exchange and shows the resulting pollution reducing in conjunction with economic benefits for the companies.
Cities are the place where decarbonization strategies for energy, transport and buildings intersect. A few years ago, the municipality of Innsbruck set up a Smart City Group consisting of staff from the municipality, IIG, IKB and IVB to address this challenge. The goal of INN'F4UM is to develop a step-by-step plan to achieve climate neutrality for the city by 2030, building on an up-to-date representation of energy and resource flows together with the University of Innsbruck.
On the basis of conventional and recycling-oriented supply-chains and/or -networks a concept for the implementation of industrial sustainability networks will be developed. Together with a taskforce which needs to be founded a pilot implementation will be prepared.
Sustainable energy supply solutions for existing quarters and industry will be surveyed holistically and cross-sectorally in a small-structured area, consequently pilot projects will be elaborated with the aim to build up a climate-neutral region.
InnoGOK – Investigation of the energetic and ecological usability of solar radiation on urban spaces and paths
Examination of the suitability of street space or other paved or not paved surfaces in urban areas for promoting renewable heat from solar radiation. Thus offers a high potential for increasing energy efficiency and conserving resources in urban contexts. Besides, the dissipation of heat from large solar-heated surfaces promises to prevent urban heat islands.
Innovation & Cost efficiency: Building standards for multi family residential buildings at optimal cost (Inno-Cost)
In this project, innovative building standards were examined concerning their economical aspects through the life cycle of a building. By means of life cycle-costs for 40-50 multi family lowest energy and passive house residential buildings on actual data from the day-to-day operation, reliable data and know-how was compiled for the first time, which is to support further market penetration of innovative building standards in the field of multi family residential buildings.
Concepts for enhancing in-house innovation in construction; development of performance and benchmarking indicators in the housing sector. Economic proposals to improve legal and structural business environment and to increase sustainable and energy efficient construction and renovation activities.
The Innovation Lab act4energy is set up as an innovation laboratory project. Its focus is to solve the problems of renewable energies integration with a focus on photovoltaic power paired with local consumption, linked to the the high fluctuation of renewable energies.
In liberalized grids the requirements for pumped storage equipment rise dramatically. The development of a controllable pump turbine to help stabilize the grid is one of the possible solutions to this problem.
Systematic reduction of THG in the sector trade and industry through market economical energy services. Research project to improve the energy efficiency of the end user as well as the integration and utilization of renewable energy in the energy service models.
Securing the future of low-emissions wood-burning furnaces in a range up to 1000 kW by using innovative filtering technology (which is also attractive in terms of economic efficiency) to nearly completely eliminate fine dust emissions.
Research and development of the possibility of a "sensorless" regulation for thermal solar systems
Innovative system for decentralized CHP on basis of biomass gasification with process optimized production of a low-tar producer gas
Tar loads in the producer gas of CHP-plants based on biomass gasification are reduced by primary measures (staged gasification), whereby the possibilities for application are increased.
Innovative technology for the treatment of municipal and industrial waste water and process waters (INNOWATEC)
Evaluation of a technology as a supporting module for process water and waste water treatment and testing in laboratory and pilot tests for specific fields of application in operational water management.
INReS - Integration of sustainable stormwater management tools into planning execution and management software (BIM)
Exploration to prepare and evaluate the applicability of an interactive web application to recommend appropriate stormwater management measures for existing and new buildings that allows for (1) BIM compatibility for object-based implementation and (2) simplified application in the form of the stormwater toolbox.
Industrial waste heat is predominantly instationary. Thus utilisation of industrial waste heat in district heating systems is constrained. A database and an evaluation methodology were developed to support increased utilisation of this heat source.
