Pre-cast cantilever balconies represent a particular problem in the thermal renovation of buildings. The central goal of this project is the development of practical and cost-effective mounting solutions for the thermally decoupled reconstruction of balconies on building frontages and achieving a significant increase in the energy performance of the thermal renovation measure.
Thermal detection of cracks on glowing wire during the process of rolling with regard to reduction of rejections
Developing a non-destructive and fully automated testing to detect surface cracks and laps in rolled wires during the production at temperature values of 800-1000°C and at a material speed of 30-40 m/s, with regard to reduction of rejections.
This project result will provide Austria with a uniform software environment for the simulation of thermo-active building systems in the form of a validated tool.
Thermocollect - Solar active facade system, using direct solar radiation for temperature conditioning of buildings
The new Thermocollect Energy-Facade System allows to utilize the solar radiation that hits the facade on a on-demand-basis. The system works with a mechanically active mechanism which selectively gathers the solar radiation and additionally can be used as a cooling and heating system according to the local requirements.
The project demonstrates the application of a solar active facade system in the course of the renovation of an existing building in order to achieve the plus-energy standard. Moreover, the effectiveness of the system will be demonstrated on new buildings and transparent components as well. The final outcome will be a manual for the application and implementation of the façade system focusing on the segment of specialists and skilled labour.
The goal was to design, offer, evaluate and refine a practical training, adapted to the current development. Aim of the courses is to have well-trained engineers and technicians with practical and theoretical knowledge in the field of thermal renovation of buildings.
ThinkHome is a networked controlled home of the future with the ultimate goal to optimise energy efficiency and user comfort at the same time. On this way, smart interaction between all building services is of utmost importance. Goals of this project include the definition of a comprehensive knowledge base that holds all relevant building data, the evaluation of control strategies based on artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as agent based software engineering.
Low-rise housing with 70 units (200 residents) in solid wood plate construction designed to meet European passive building standards. Strategies for highly ecological and sustainable building within the economic constraints of social housing, Mühlweg, 1210 Vienna. Industrial pre-fabrication, ...
A professional documentary film and detailed construction-documentation upon the subject of innovative thermal renovation of matured apartment houses and tenement blocks in Austria.
From an idea to a trade product ready for marketing: Plant dyes for the textile industry.
Specialised theoretical and practical training for designers/installers of comfort ventilation systems in residential buildings.
The aim of the event was an open in-depth discussion with and for experts of the alpine clubs in order to evaluate the pilot project "Schiestlhaus" and to identify usable approaches for sustainable buildings in the alpine area.
Transfer of results of the program "Factory of Tomorrow" into the target groups of energy managers and energy consultants
Transfer of results of the program "Factory of Tomorrow" with respect to energy efficiency and increased adoption of renewable energy technologies into the target groups of internal energy managers and external energy consultants. The transfer activities include carrying out a one-day-seminar twice and the preparation of freely available training materials.
Transfer of technology and know-how for the initiation of fermentation gas net feed-in pilot projects.
Target group communication of the technical possibilities of fermentation gas net feed-in. Information preparation and reduction in planning complexity. Support and networking of potential future plant operators. Establishing a service office as contact point.
Transferproject: Professional strawbale building - "Virtual building-site", exhibition and instruction material
Strawbale-workshops are considered as the best way to inseminate this ecological building-technique. The "virtual building site" has some decisive advantages over the common situation: it does not depend on the weather, allows the comparative study of different constructing methods and can, as a permanent installation, be used as an exhibition.
The project aims to provide the basis for a transition strategy towards the establishment of sustainability-orientated production and consumption systems. Together with participants and addressees of the programme "Factory of the Future", the project will develop a common framework for the management of transition processes.
The project analysed selected TRIGOS projects and organisations and further developed assessment approaches for sustainable management accounting and corporate social responsibility. TRIGOS is an award scheme for organisations who combine economic performance with social and environmental responsibility.
During a two days training course managers are trained in sustainable management.
The Manual for Energy Consultants had been adapted to present and future needs in energy consulting. The updated manual will preserve the basic concept (buildings with at least close to domestic energy use patterns, up to 1000 m² heated floor area, concentration on refurbishment) and the existing structure: Checklists, data sheets and explanations.
Development of a cost-effective cleaning unit, free of waste-products, for the upgrading of biogas to natural gas quality. Elaboration of the basis for a demonstration project injecting biogas into the gas distribution system of Salzburg.
