This project aimed for feasible low-cost solutions, which allow residents of multi-party houses, with special focus on social housing to profit and participate in the energy transition process and associated trends (e.g. community generation units, exploitation of flexibility). The results of the project are low-cost concepts and business models of community generation units and utilization concepts, tested for their feasibility in a social housing complex. These concepts are based on special requirements of different lifestyles in low-income households and take the framework of social housing such as tenant fluctuation into account.

Storage Cascade MZ: Storage cascade system to establish urban PLUS energy systems on the example of the city of Mürzzuschlag
In the "Storage Cascade MZ" project, battery storage systems are implemented on different grid levels in the city of Mürzzuschlag, whose measurement data enable an integrated grid monitoring and create the basis for a future expansion of the nominal power of photovoltaic (pv) systems.
StromBIZ - demonstration projects: business models for decentralized electricity generation and distribution
Feasible business models to utilize locally generated renewable energy are expected to induce a tipping point for the "Energy Turnaround" in Austria. Within the proposed project a number of demonstration PV plants on residential and non-residential buildings had been realized. On this basis new approaches of business cases had been developed, implemented, tested and disseminated.
Systematic processing of the increasing cooling demand and presentation of the geographical location of the cooling demand in Austria. The result serves as a decision-making aid for the development of climate protection measures and climate change adaptation strategies as well as an estimate of future cooling demand.
Evaluation of the technical and economic feasibility of an occupancy detection system based on the technology of visible light sensing, which, in combination with the building management system, should reduce the energy consumption of buildings. The goal is to implement low-tech/low-complexity solutions that can distinguish between individuals and groups based solely on the detection of visible light reflections.
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.
baubehoerde.at - Development of a Vision 2030 for a Digital Building Authority and Recommendations for Action in Austria
In Austria, planning permission applications are submitted and managed largely manually. The aims of the baubehoerde.at project are to evaluate the potential and limitations of digitizing building approval processes and to create a Vision 2030 strategy for a digital building authority.
lowTEMP4districtheat - Reduction of the system parameters of heating networks for the integration of renewable heat sources using soft sensors
Analysis of the use of soft sensors in addition to selective real measurements for the complete recording of real-time parameters of heating networks. The data obtained enable detailed grid simulations with low computing power requirements and form the basis of a strategy for lowering the grid temperatures and feeding in decentrally generated heat.
Optimized & reliable operation of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems in terms of maintenance and energy management, using predictive, data-based & self-learning error detection. Conceptual design and prototype implementation of an AI (Artificial Intelligence) tool for automated data analysis and recommendations for technical building operators.
In the project technologies in the field of building construction and building automation are being researched for quality and performance improvements in the workplace. The aim is to individualize the control of sun protection to the people who need to be protected from glare and overheating and hope to see through.
A specially developed simulation model is employed to ascertain the energetic potential of adaptive façade systems. The dynamic behavior of the physical properties of the adaptive façade system reacts to both internal and external changing conditions. The goal was the development of an adaptive façade, which helps provide maximum comfort for the building occupants with minimum energy consumption.
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 %.
ÖKO-OPT-AKTIV - Optimised control and operating behaviour of thermally activated buildings in future urban districts
Development and simulation of scalable, distributed control strategies for the use of the storage effect of thermally activated components in buildings of future city districts for their energy supply by an energy centre.
ÖKO-OPT-QUART - Economically optimized control and operating mode of complex energy networks of future city districts
In the project ÖKO-OPT-QUART energy-based, economic and control-orientated models will be developed in order to simulate the operating mode of complex, sustainable energy networks in city districts. For an exemplary configuration these models will be combined to an overall model which allows a realistic economic comparison of different control strategies. The final goal of the project is the development of a method for the systematic design of cost-optimized, predictive control strategies for complex energy networks in city districts.
