Concerning to an accurate and adaptable construction of 2 to 4 storey solid timber houses with the characteristics of a passive house, a digital construction and dimension system will be developed. The system which contains standardised modular ecological detailed solutions enables an exact dimensioning and installation of passive houses by small carpentering companies.
In course of the monitoring project the effectiveness of the energy-technical system was checked on the basis of running measuring data. The data were evaluated and, if required, the arrangements and settings of the control system were adapted. Main result is that the energy balance could have been improved explicitly whilst the monitoring process.
All pilot projects of "Building of Tomorrow Plus" had to be evaluated in a common monitoring project on energy efficiency, user's acceptance, and the integrated building performance. monitorPlus documented and assessed the results of this evaluation.
This study uses several data sources to analyze the effects of the research programe "Haus der Zukunft" ("Building of Tomorrow") on the Austrian housebuilding industry and the built environment.
This project addressed the development of construction details for the implementation of vacuum glazing panels in new windows. In this project such constructions (form of frame, thermal bridges, structural aspects, mounting of glass) were explored via empirical experiments and via simulation. As an outcome, a mock-up was constructed, and the findings were documented in a comprehensive document.
Multi-Activ-Facade is a pre-manufactured, multifunctional panellised façade, which incorporates ventilation with heat recovery, passive house windows and photovoltaic for smart self-supply within retrofitting measures. The specific challenge is the application within social housing.
Sustainable mixed-use utilization of urban commercial and industrial areas with a specific focus on energy-related aspects.
In the frame of the project a classification system for Smart City Technologies had beed developed, the relevance of a wide range of technologies in terms of their potential contribution to the development of sustainable and more resilient cities with a high quality of life had beed evaluated and a comprehensive classification of the technical maturity of relevant technologies, technical (sub-)systems and technology-related services had been given.
The main goal was to raise awareness for energetic renovations of settlement houses due to the handbook "Neue Standards für alte Häuser" in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. In doing so, the refurbishment potential has been identified in the target countries, experiences exchanged and information transferred. Contacts to the relevant target groups have been established.
The use of sustainable building materials is a key issue for sustainable development of the building sector. Emission free indoor air, minimized embodied energy of construction materials and health risk for construction workers are three main aspects. Between five hospital operators in Austria, Germany and Switzerland a practical exchange of experience focused on material ecology will be initiated and moderated.
Development for the application in the passive house standard (e.g. low-energy houses).
The campaign is, orientated on the target group, a linked extension of the reconstruction guidance "Neue Standards für alte Häuser" ("New standards for old houses") on the building trade and subconstruction work as well as on the awarding authority.
The project "New4Old - New energy for old buildings - Promoting the integration of RES & RUE measures in historic buildings" aims to promote the integration of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies into historic buildings, and to create a European-wide network of Renewable Energy Houses in the different Member States of the European Union.
OEKOPLUS-KOMPLEX - Analysis of the technical, economical and ecological preconditions for the establishment and utilisation of plus-energy-buildings and building assemblies
The evolution of the low energy house and the passive house standards to the plus energy standard results in a clear reduction of green house gas emissions as well as the primary energy input. The goal of the project was the determination of the technical, ecological and economic basic conditions for the construction and the use of "plus-energy-buildings" in order to finally realize them.
From October 7 to 9, 2009 the AEE INTEC has organized an international symposium "Ökosan 09". The emphasis of the symposium was the communication of (partial) results of running and closed cooperation projects by leading technical experts dealing with the retrofit of large-scale buildings.
Oekosan'11 - International symposium for high-quality retrofit of large-volume buildings to plus-energy-buildings
The AEE INTEC organized the international congress "ökosan'11 - high-quality retrofit of large-volume buildings to plus-energy-buildings" in September 2011. The position of Austrian companies in international cooperation was strengthened through personal contacts during the conference.
The new office building (headquarter) of Windkraft Simonsfeld AG in Ernstbrunn (Lower Austria) is planned as a plus energy building. From this excellent starting conditions it is intended to make seven more steps to explore innovative options for energy plus buildings.
The "oh456 Plus Energy Office Building" with its adjoining small hydro-electric power plant shall serve as a prototype for testing innovative technologies and also provide the companies residing in the building integral home surroundings comprising common break and leisure facilities. A wide public will have access to the building which will be a location for the most diverse events, exhibitions and lectures on climate protection as well as being a joint promotional platform for sustainable construction.
Online reference for ecologically rated building construction details suitable for achieving Passivhaus standard
An already well-established web database management system is being adapted to present the contents of a catalogue of building elements for the Passivhaus standard. A wider distribution of the contents and future extensions of the catalogue by distributed workgroups are the promises of the project.
The primary research topic of OPEN HEAT GRID was to investigate the possibilities of enforcing the feed-in of industrial waste heat into existing district heating networks. The project results show that excess heat is not for free: despite minimal variable costs, the investment costs need to satisfy usual payback periods. The analysis shows that there is no need for a regulation in the sense of a feed-in obligation or market liberalization. However, from an economic point of view, information asymmetries exist, which may lead to irrational decisions.
