SC_micro-quarters – Planning and modernisation of smart city quarters with a view to energy optimisation and a high quality of life
The SC_micro-quarters project demonstrates possibilities for urban planning and urban quarter development with a view to creating a path to a low carbon city with a high quality of life and good resilience, while taking into account existing and proposed buildings, infrastructures and uses. The central element is the modelling of urban structures at micro-quarter level.
Developing a new process based on selective recovery of calcium carbonate from paper mill effluents and sludge, purification, conversion into precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) and reuse as filler in paper making.
SIMULTAN - Simultaneous planning environment for buildings in resilient, highly energy efficient and resource-efficient districts
Synopsis This project enables the opportunity for an essential energy efficiency increase within overlapping buildings, to achieve the objective of resilient cities and districts with respect to a high quality of life, resource sustainability and energy efficiency. The goal is a workable tool based on a multidisciplinary planning approach, to support the decision finding process in order to design both refurbishment projects and new developments within a highly efficient city.
Development of a concept for a product service system (PSS) in the area of surface treatment (varnish, laquer, paint). Instead of selling varnish and pain, the service of surface treatment (per square meter) should be developed for private and commercial users.
The emerging development of smart grids provides market opportunities for new ICT-based services ("smart value-added services"). Economic and organizational barriers are foreseeable that could affect the establishment of business models and service providers (data formats, connectivity, controllability, etc.). In order to improve the chances especially for new and local actors, SMARTIES proactively tries to eliminate hindrances of innovation.
The main goal was to establish a long-term cooperation for "Solar Cooling" between the Austria Solar Innovation Center (ASiC) and the Center for Sustainable Energy Systems (CSES) at the renowned Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra. Combining the competences of both institutes immediately offers the chance to boost the penetration of the European and the Australian market with this new technology for cooling in sustainable buildings.
In this project the application of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) for energy supply (heat and power) of urban areas will be investigated. Due to the high temperature level of the produced heat it would be possible to use this heat for the energy supply of different heat and power consumers (residential buildings, industrial plants, etc.). One aim is to provide the SOFC-heat at several temperature levels in order to establish the advantages of the fuel cell. On the one hand the legal and market-based conditions will be evaluated, on the other hand the technological feasibility will be scoured by the use of CFD-simulation of the heat production.
Archieved goal was the final product developement oft he innovative solarthermal collector SOLrose from prototype to seriel production. Enhancements of SOLrose with respect to the state oft he art: attractive design for frontage integration, serial production of system modules, distribution and assembling.
SPACE4free - Retrofitting souterrain areas in 19th century townhouses to apartments with high quality of life and low energy consumption
Planning of durable and damage-free apartments with high quality of life and low energy consumption in moisture exposed souterrain areas of 19th century townhouses. Using innovative ventilation control systems comfortable room climate will be created. Additionally the tolerance of different types of use is ensured. A planning tool enables the scaling of the findings and thus the applicability to various planning situations.
The research project SPIN.OFF is based on the integration of a zinc - bromine redox flow battery storage system within the Tech2Base, a planned office building in Vienna's 21st district. On the basis of this battery demonstration object questions arising with the implementation and operation process should be answered. Besides the ideal dimensioning of the battery storage system and the development of a self-learning energy management system to increase the self-consumption and to reduce load peaks, additional planning and safety related aspects are investigated.
The project aimed at comprehensively analyzing existing approaches for the coordination and regulation of Smart City development in small and medium-sized cities. In the context of case studies, this study combines the analysis of relevant legal-institutional frameworks as well as of governance processes for selected, energy-related fields of urban activity.
SQUARE - A System for Quality Assurance when Retrofitting Existing Buildings to Energy Efficient Buildings
The project aims to promote a flexible quality assurance management for the retrofitting process. It leads to high quality renovations of residential multifamily buildings regarding energy improvement and improvement of indoor environment.
Stakeholder interviews on the "smartness" of buildings, a technology screening, impact analysis and classification of possible technologies / services plus master's theses form the basis of a proposal for the national implementation of the "smart readiness indicator" of buildings and accompanying measures, in coordination with the OIB, regional and national governmental representatives.
SUBURBAHN – test- and demonstration-area for urban development and mobility around public transport stations in the central area of Upper Austria
Targeted, process-oriented conception for the implementation and operation of a test- and demonstration-area for urban development and mobility in Ansfelden involving relevant scientific stakeholders, local and regional stakeholders, decision-makers as well as the interested public according to the living lab approach.
A individual company and process evaluation defines the tools-mix of sustainable orientated management methods implemented in the companies. The well know in Instrument Prepare will be further developed adding the innovation strategy TRIZ "systematic inventing", making the new Prepare plus instrument.
SUPERBE - Potential of Superblock-concepts as contribution to planning energy-efficient urban quarters
The exploratory study SUPERBE for the first time looks into the applicability and potential effects of Superblock concepts in an Austrian urban context in order to assess their contribution to energy-oriented urban planning.
Developing technical and business concepts and strategies for a sustainable power supply of supermarkets and local consumers - supply of heat, electric power and cooling energy on the basis of solar energy and solid biomass.
SUPROMED: Reprocessing and Reuse of Single Use Medical Devices in the Light of Sustainable Development Criteria - Implementation in Austria
In contrast to other countries there is currently no reprocessing and reuse of single use medical devices in Austria. Thus the potential for major ecological and economical savings remains unused. In a stakeholder dialogue, practical implementation strategies were developed to change the trend towards a sustainable value-added chain.
SURO - The urban underground as mine? Potential of secondary resources in subsurface infrastructure systems
Feasibility of a resource cadaster to inventorize, characterize and locate material stocks in subsurface infrastructure networks. The results are used for the economic assessment of secondary resource potentials.
SaLüH! Renovation of multi-family houses with small apartments, low-cost technical solutions for ventilation, heating and hot water
New innovative concepts for heating and ventilation will be investigated. Very compact heat pumps are developed in such a way that it will be possible to integrate these units into the window parapet or into a prefabricated timber façade.
