VERTICAL FARMING - Investigation on requirements of a Vertical Farm-prototype development for crop plant production
In the center of interest stands the investigation of fundamental principles for a new building typology – the Vertical Farm. Urban vertical food production can contribute to more energy efficient cities by concurrently reducing land use. Substantial influencing factors to achieve these goals are intended to be revealed.
The project researches possibilities and potentials of highly efficient use of space through modern concepts of "stacked" functions and vertical production.
Production of natural gas substitute from biogas and grid-injection to the public natural gas grid on an industrial scale using the two-staged membrane separation process gaspermeation. Design and erection of the upgrading plant at the biogas plant Bruck/Leitha as well as monitoring and optimisation of the operational characteristics.
Preparation and initiation of the implementation of a Virtual Green Power Plant based on renewable energy sources at the Program Responsible Party of oekostrom AG - The conception of a power utility within the Austrian power market.
For the cost efficient and lasting energy supply from ecological sources, wind, photovoltaic and biomass have to be integrated in existing grids. New methods for DSM and virtual power stations are investigated, to improve the control behaviour.
Geographic methods for the combination of renewable energy sources to create "virtual power plants" and development of self-sustaining regions in terms of energy-balance and the Kyoto target.
VisErgyControl - Integral control system for daylight and artificial lighting for high visual and melanopic comfort with minimized primary energy consumption
Within the project VisErgyControl an integral, simulation-based, energy-efficient open loop daylight and artificial lighting control system had been developed. The research project focuses on the visual and melanopic requirements of users while minimizing the energy consumption for heating and cooling.
VITALITY District - Optimized energy concepts in the early planning phase of resilient, energy-efficient neighbourhoods
The aim of the VITALITY District project is to coordinate the total (electrical and thermal) load and generation profile in the design phase of urban areas and neighbourhoods in order to optimize the energy concept of energy-efficient districts. Hence smart city indicators in detailed level (buildings, individual technologies, public spaces) as well as models, principles and catalogs of criteria for energy-optimized urban neighbourhoods are going to be created. The results are going to be presented in compact form on the district level in order to serve as input for future urban planning projects.
Voltage stabilization by central reactive power control of biogas power plants (Virtual Biogas Power Plant)
A virtual power plant, combining 20 agricultural biogas plants is planned in the south-eastern part of the State of Styria (A). The aim of the project is to realize a central reactive power control system of the biogas plants. Active power of this biogas plants ranges between 1 and 3 MW. Specific goals of the project are increasing grid stability, decreasing long distance reactive power transmission, decreasing energy losses, and decreasing utility costs.
Technical preparation of the functional model from the window and facadesystem walchwindow04 to a serial production-oriented prototype. Developing the new production processes and technologies
Use of waste heat and covering of the remaining energy demand by the renewable energy sources hydropower and biomass in a metal-processing company.
Analysis of the water absorption in Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) in order to develop solutions to decrease and stop water absorption. This enables a big variety of new applications made of WPC and brings economical and ecological advantages for the polymer processing industries.
The subject of this project is the design, development and demonstration / test operation of a total system of energy exchange (electricity) across buildings and building-integrated energy production for different types of buildings (residential, office, laboratory buildings).
Inquiry of requirements, implementation of qualification schemes and coaching in the design of sustainability reports for selected companies of the styrian automobile cluster with special emphasis on environmental and social costs.
Whiscers is a system for installing internal wall insulation with minimal mess, whilst the resident remains in the property. It involves measuring the walls in the property using a laser device that enables fast and highly accurate measurement. Information is then sent electronically to a computer controlled off-site cutting machine that is rapid, precise and mess-free.
win wi[e]n: block development ground floor zone: Optimization of the Viennese block renewal programm as a tool for a sustainable development of street level and open (public) spaces of urban fabric
Development of the Viennese Block Renewal Program with a special focus on the ground floor zone of historical urban fabric (on the basis of the case study Block Renewal Area Ilgplatz, Vienna): sustainable restructuring and reusing of the blocks at ground level, including courtyards and street spaces- as a comprehensive planning approach.
The objective of the WohnMOBIL project is the promotion of a land-, cost- and traffic saving settlement development and a change of transport priorities (priority of eco-mobility). This shall be reached by the transfer of innovative living concepts like "transitory living", until now mainly used in urban areas, to suburban-rural areas and the interrelation with needs-oriented multimodal mobility concepts.
Development of a wood composite direct dosing system
Development of a new generation extrusion tool for a wood plastic composite. This material will be developed in a second project an should show a fiber content of 60 - 85%. Important is a high profile quality as well as a high output to ensure an economical production.
