solSPONGEhigh - High solar fraction by thermally activated components in an urban environment

Within this project the intensive use of thermally activated building elements (TABs) as an additional thermal storage in different buildings, with solar technologies (thermal, PV) preferred for energy supply, was investigated. The aim was to activate and use the thermal storage potential that is immanent in the building elements and thereby achieve solar coverage of the building's heat demand of nearly 100 %.

Spatial Energy Planning for Smart City Quarters and Smart Regions

In the project ERP_hoch3 energy related policy research in three Austrian agglomerations (Vienna – Lower Austria, Graz – Styria and Vorderland-Feldkirch) has been done, scenarios of the current state and the target state have been modelled and calculated. The aim was to develop generic transferable recommendations for spatial energy planning in agglomerations.

SpeedReg - Prompt quality assurance of the commissioning process of buildings

The focus of the project is on quality assurance within the commissioning process with the aim to speed up and to improve the operational adjustment of newly constructed or comprehensively renovated buildings. The fragmented know-how which is hardly accessible for the relevant target groups will be consolidated and elaborated in the form of a practice guideline which will be directly applicable in commissioning processes in practice. In this way the project contributes to the development of a common, well-established standard for quality assurance within the commissioning of buildings.

SPIN.OFF - Integration of storage systems in the office building Tech2Base

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.
