IEA-SHC Task 50: Advanced Lighting Solutions for Retrofitting Buildings

Retrofitting of non-residential buildings with energy efficient daylight and artificial lighting solutions can significantly contribute to reductions in electric energy consumption. However, appropriate technologies have to be made available to the stakeholders (investors, industry, consultants, designer) that are involved in the retrofitting process. Thus, system solutions for daylighting and artificial lighting were evaluated, simple rating and evaluation tools were developed and case studies that serve as best practice examples were monitored. The results were collected in the Lighting Retrofit Advisor, which helps stakeholders within the lighting retrofit process.

IEA-SHC Task 64: Solar Process Heat

The main objective of the task is to identify, verify and promote the role of SHIP (Solar Heat in Industrial Processes) systems as single system and in integrated energy systems. Technical and non-technical barriers will be tackled. The main results of the project are a dimensioning and integration guideline for SHIP and integrated energy systems and a Guideline to Market for SHIP and integrated energy systems.

IEA-SHC Task 65: Solar Cooling for the Sunbelt Regions

Without measures, cooling demand will triple by 2050. The aim of Task 65 is to adapt existing technologies to the boundary conditions of the sunbelt, to find suitable system concepts, to evaluate them and to disseminate the advantages. In addition to system adaptations, the Austrian focus is on life cycle cost-benefit analysis and the further development of existing assessment tools.

IEA-SHC Task 66: SOLAR ENERGY BUILDINGS - Integrated solar energy supply concepts for climate-neutral buildings and communities for the "City of the Future”

The energy supply for climate-neutral buildings is based on holistic system concepts that achieve high renewable fractions by intelligently combining technologies, sector coupling, high grid interaction and flexibilization measures. The Solar Energy Buildings Task supports exactly this development. The objective is to identify relevant stakeholders and their needs, to develop a technology portfolio and optimised integrated energy concepts and to give recommendations to policy makers and energy-related companies.

Increase in Sales of Vegetable Oils from Austrian Oilseeds by Increase of the Technical Grade with Regard to the Demands of the Varnishing Industry

The cultivation of flax (linseed) in Austria should be enhanced by arrangements to increase the technical grade of linseed oil produced. Austrian agriculture should be enabled to provide raw materials sufficient in batch and technical grade for the Austrian varnishing industry.

Increase of in-house consumption by building clusters and active storages (Eigenlast Cluster)

The project involved the evaluation of the significance of new appro­aches for the increase of in-house consumption of solar energy (electric energy and heat) of buildings in Großschönau, which are already equip­ped for such measurements. The existing municipal buildings, commercial buildings and households are aggregated to form virtual building clusters. Subsequently, the clusters were analyzed according to their in-house consumption with and without the usage of batteries and H2 storages. The economic analysis of this concept derives from a regional implementation plan for further industrial re­search.

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.

INN'FIT4UM - Innsbruck "Fit4UrbanMission" - climate neutral Innsbruck 2030

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.

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.
