PowerShade - Development of electricity-generating shading solutions for energy-flexible buildings in urban space
The main goal of the cooperative R&D project "PowerShade" is the development of low-cost and universally usable electricity-generating shading solutions for energy-flexible buildings in urban space.
Development of an aluminium energy roof for the supply of a heat pump
PRO WISSEN - Strategy and methods for a regionally embedded process of knowledge transfer aiming at introducing sustainable products and services in small and medium sized crafts enterprises
Development of a strategy and a down-to-earth and user-friendly set of methods for a regionally embedded process for the transfer of knowledge between crafts enterprises (SME) in order to introduce sustainable products and services in crafts enterprises
PRoBateS - Potentials of planning and building legislation for energetically sustainable city structures
The aims of this project are to analyse planning and building legislation in order to identify barriers, potentials and suitable courses of action for energy-orientated policy measures. Specific policy recommendations are developed with a view to increasing the sustainability of energy-related city structures. For these purposes the project combines two different disciplinary approaches: a thorough legal analysis and a spatial structure and quantitative impact assessment.
Probing for PV façade systems made of lightweight plastic modules with reversible fittings for new and old buildings (PV-FAS_light + easy)
Probing for a new, simple, cost-effective and building-integrated PV facade system made of plastic PV modules through initial investigations for fixing technology, for building physics, for fire protection and for electrical engineering concerning the usability, the areas of applicability and the yield and application potentialfor new buildings and for existing buildings.
Processing of filter residues of the beer - brewing process for the production of an innovative pharmaceutical substance
The latest technology for the filtration of beer is the use of ion exchangers. The reclaim contains high-potent substances (vitamins and minerals from the yeast, hops and other proteins) in concentrated form which should be processed and characterised. In a further step this substance should be the main ingredient of a food supplement. After a technical adaptation this concept can be used within other ranges of the food and natural substance industry.
Based on former FdZ projects in the area of PSS, EMA and Zero Emission PSS Water develops and realises a guideline with which sustainable water management in industry and public utiliies as a service can be offered.
In RISP a process model for the development of product-services is worked out, which consists of seven steps and so called "gates" between the single steps. The questions which have to be answered before entering the gates to the next step are derived from a failure mode and the effect analysis of the single steps.
Inventory of product-related environmental information systems, survey of implementations within Austrian companies, and analysis with respect to principle applications
Production and upgrading of fermentation gas at the location Wals-Siezenheim to be feed into the natural gas distribution network
Production and multistage purification process of approx. 150 m³/ h biogas in Wals-Siezenheim. Prove the feasibility of trouble-free feeding of biogas into the natural gas grid of the Salzburg AG within an operation period of 3 years.
A comprehensive planning approach for the short term flow of material, energy and production orders in sawmills in order to improve the value added in the wood supply network.
By means of suitable thermomechanical pretreatment a process for the production of bioethanol on the basis of the waste compounds straw and wood will be developed. Regional plants will use local raw materials for local energy production.
The production of bioethanol in Bruck/Leitha in addition to the production of heat, power and valuable by-products from biomass will be optimized by a new process simulation tool under the target of maximum usage of waste and low temperature heat and optimal source and product usage.
Knowledge transfer, communication and discussion of the results of the Building of Tomorrow programme in the fields of architecture, planning, construction and companies in the building industry.
ProKlim - Optimisation of Energy Efficiency of automated indoor climate systems by using weather forecasts
Investigation of the basic energy savings potential for buildings in commercial use by including weather forecasts as a variable. Additionally, a concept for integrating weather forecasts into the heating and air conditioning control systems in buildings is planned to be developed. Within the scope of the feasibility study, a detailed analysis of technological possibilities, including both hardware and software, will be conducted.
ProKlim+ - Use of Model Predictive Control to optimize solar power consumption in case of increased energy efficiency.
Using weather forecast for building automation can help improving the energy efficiency of buildings and, thus, saving energy. In the project ProKlim+ the forecast of solar radiation will be used to optimize the building automation to satisfy the needs of the building users, and at the same time to minimize the energy demand on the one hand and to maximize the consumption of self-produced energy on the other hand.
PROMISE - Production with solar energy. Study on the potential of thermal solar energy systems in trade and industry depending on the production processes
Documentation of realized plants for the use of thermal solar energy in trade and industry companies. Identification of production processes and branches, which have a demand for low-temperature heat. Determine the potential of solarthermal systems to provide low-temperature heat. Case studies for branches and processes with the highest mid-term potential for realization of a solar plant.
The project aims a strengthening the market for sustainable Product-Service-Systems (PSS) by clearly identifying success factors and hindrances. Restraining factors and basic conditions are worked out on the basis of best-practice examples.
PSS Strategies - Development of strategies for designing and implementing sustainable Product-Servicesystems
Based on a previous FdZ project it is intended to develop and implement strategies for sector specific sustainable product-servicesystems-innovations along product-chains in workshops with companies and other actors involved. Focus will be placed on implementation and possible restricting factors.
