Task 32 deals with the challenges of using Wind-LIDAR-Systems and provides a strong opportunity to generate new knowledge by global networking. Energiewerkstatt elaborates an analysis regarding data availabilities of LIDAR measurement campaigns at different sites in Austria and resumes an organisational role regarding the assessment of uncertainties of LIDAR measurements in complex terrain.
Task 32 of the IEA Wind deals with the research, the development and the application of different LIDAR-Systems in the wind energy sector. The main objective of the project is the further development of Wind-LIDAR technologies and expanding their application potentials to optimize the positioning and installation of future wind turbines through a more accurate determination of local wind conditions.
The goal of the Annex Electric Motor Systems is to raise awareness on the large savings potential in motor systems, while showing the realization method of such a path. Currently, Austria leads the task Energy Audits for Motor Systems to develop recommendations for carrying out energy audits for motor systems based on international standards.
The Task deals with the analysis and distribution of strategic relevant information of value chains of biorefineries. Based on this information the implementation of a BioEconomy should be supported.
The aim of the Annex TS2 is to implement low-temperature district heat networks (LT-DH or 4GDH, the 4th generation of district heating). Therefore, the Annex TS2 is a platform in which the prerequisites for the implementation are established with international experts.
Within the framework of the IEA IETS Annex 15, potentials for the use of waste heat and technologies for their integration are collected, bundled and processed through contributions from national research activities. Recognized knowledge is disseminated on a national level and integrated into ongoing research activities.
Industrial electrification can make a major contribution to CO2 reduction. The aim of the annex is a transfer of knowledge between the international and the state level. At national level, stakeholder engagement aims to clarify the topic of industrial electrification, compare roadmaps and resources, and analyze potential benefits from (joint) programs.
The Task 13 objective is to improve operation, reliability and, consequently, the electrical and economic output of photovoltaic power systems and subsystems through providing a common platform whereby quality aspects are elaborated and exchanged amongst the stakeholders, and to disseminate this knowledge to the market actors. Given the international nature of the project consortium, the cooperation includes important markets such as Europe, Japan and the USA.
Retrofitting of non-residential buildings with energy efficient daylight and artificial lighting solutions can significantly contribute to reductions in electric energy consumption. However, appropriate technologies have to be made available to the stakeholders (investors, industry, consultants, designer) that are involved in the retrofitting process. Thus, system solutions for daylighting and artificial lighting were evaluated, simple rating and evaluation tools were developed and case studies that serve as best practice examples were monitored. The results were collected in the Lighting Retrofit Advisor, which helps stakeholders within the lighting retrofit process.
The International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) aims at fostering the global implementation of Smart Grids. Annex 7 – Smart Grid Transitions deals with the related challenges regarding institutional change and socio-technical transition of the electricity systems.
The intention of this project was to visualize the current activities of the IEA Energy Technology Network and to identify possible gaps and overlaps. The mapping includes 185 ongoing tasks and annexes (Status September 2017).
