Development of an intelligent district cooling concept and alternative solutions for heat rejection from central absorption chillers at the example of the neighbourhood TownTown in Vienna.
City Dialog - Evaluation of future research topics for the "city of the future" through stakeholder dialog.
The integration of key stakeholder views allowed an extensive evaluation and prioritisation of research topics for the "city of the future". The discussion had been organised in workshops with stakeholder groups (public administration, science & research, residents).
To assess the energy performance of urban planning projects in early design stages with low input and evaluation effort within the project CityCalc, an easily applicable planning and evaluation tool has been developed.
CityStore - Sondierung des wesentlichen F&E-Bedarfs zur Optimierung von städtischen Energiespeichern in integrierten Energiesystemen
CityStore pursues a first-of-its-kind, innovative approach on spatial location of storage needs and potentials. This includes the evaluation of concrete challenges and prerequisites as well as the identification of useful storage technologies and capacities. Model calculations for the model cities Graz and Weiz will be carried out. If, and to which extent, the results can be generalized will be investigated in the Follower Region South Burgenland. The results should enable optimized planning and realization of urban energy storage facilities – thereby enabling targeted investments in energy infrastructure to achieve (local) climate and energy targets.
The motivation for developing the project "Clay Passiv Office-Building Tattendorf" was the dissatisfaction with the situation of a great difference in the state of technology in three fields relevant to the research project: 1) sustainable production of energy , 2) sustainable energy conservation technologies and 3) use of sustainable building materials.
The C3E TCP deals with strategies, policies and measures to increase the promotion of women in the energy sector. The aim is to create a framework in which participating countries can share information and best practices on effective strategies for the empowerment of women in this sector.
Climate Hub Vienna - Concept development and preparation of an innovation laboratory to accelerate Vienna’s path to climate neutrality
Preparation of an urban innovation laboratory to support decarbonisation in Vienna by 2040. The focus is on systemic innovation and accelerated roll-out of RTI projects through infrastructure, services, networking and the systematic involvement of city administration and users. The innovation lab is intended to strengthen the effectiveness of innovations and the participation of the Viennese in the transformation.
Transdisciplinarily developed climate-friendly solutions for decarbonisation of the building stock in small and medium-sized municipalities. The application of the sample solutions will readily identifiable through a web tool.
Climate neutral buildings from the period of promoterism - ways, potentials and possibilities of implementation
The focus was on the goal-oriented and economic options, in order to achieve a CO2-neutral energy supply and hermetically sealed building envelope as well as to show high energy efficiency when using. On the other hand building protection regulations and the quality in use are to be considered.
Climate protection in Schools: a prototype for targeted oriented knowledge transfer for students on the basis of energy efficient buildings
The saying "Was Hänschen nicht lernt, lernt Hans nimmermehr." which can be translated with the English saying "You can´t teach an old dog new tricks." especially applies to the issue of "climate protection" in general. Therefore children must be made aware of the importance of the subject from the beginning on in order to live their life efficiently and environmentally friendly. Based on a research and on an evaluation of existing teaching materials teachers and students will develop, how students understand the topic "climate protection" with a focus on "building and living in the future" the easiest way.
The AMT-TCP focuses on creating innovations in material technologies to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions to allow global warming mitigation.
By means of optimization of the production of vegetable dyes and dyeing technology, the vegetable dyestuff "Colors of Nature" will achieve market maturity. In co-operation with farmers and companies of the textile, food processing and wood working industry there has been developed a competitive product throughout the value chain, which will not only yield an ecological advantage, but also generate regional creation of value.
Evaluation of the quality and efficiency of state-of-the-art installed solar combisystems, potentials for improvements and measures to increase the quality
Austria with its large forests is a classical country for biomass use. Heating with split-logs is state-of-the-art for several years, and using combined heat and power systems for small powers to obtain self-sustaining households is an additional utilization.
Ventilation systems for dwellings can be more efficient in terms of cost and energy, if the air guiding concept with cascade principle (overflow of air from sleeping rooms into living room). In this project, the planning principles had been developed and published in practice guidelines.
Comfort ventilation plus+: First time development of high efficient comfort ventilation systems that enable demand-control of room-wise airflow for new buildings and refurbishment
First time development of innovative components for comfort ventilation systems used in new buildings and renovation that enable demand-control of air flow room-wise. The outcome is a considerable reduction of the primary energy balance and a sustainable solution of problems concerning the discrepance between satisfying humidity and very good indoor air quality within the heating period.
The factory of tomorrow as a regional production network using renewable raw materials. A pilot project in the field of insulating materials.
Based on a representative empirical study among ultimate consumers (1000 interviews) and an empirical survey among 200 model companies in regard to sustainable management, communication strategies and concepts are developed.
Comparative analysis and evaluation of innovative building concept models in terms of key ecological and economic figures during life cycle of individual building concepts
The aim of this research project was to subject a number of building concept models to a comprehensive comparative analysis and evaluation in terms of key ecological and economic figures.
Compatibility of sustainability and economic efficiency of bioethanol production with a special focus on small-sized ethanol plants
Scientific investigation of compatibility of sustainability and economic efficiency of bioethanol production with a special focus on small-sized ethanol plants. Improvement of energetic efficiency by integration of residuals from feedstock- and bioethanol production.
