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.
A competition for the builders of prefabricated houses provided new design-types of attached houses. The results have been awarded and published to encourage the participants to enter this segment of the market.
Surfactants from the pericarp were isulated and used in personal-care products. The fruit is being processed to high quality diet nutrition for coeliacs and dietary supplement. Fibre material is being gained from the stems.
Compilation and integration of activities carried out in the field of cascade utilisation of stone fruits seeds ("KernCraft Austria") and planning of a demonstration project to start implementation of KernCraft Austria.
Conception of innovative business models for active integration into network of decentraliced units for consumers and producers
Conception of economically and technically reasonable business models for network operators, producers as well as end users who have the chance to come into operation in active distribution networks until 2050.
Connection of innovative strategies and technologies to a holistic, resources-friendly plus energy building (FUTUREbase)
On the basis of a construction project in Giefinggasse 4 in Vienna the combination of new, innovative strategies and technologies to an integrated, resources conserving plus energy building with high signaling and multiplication effect had been tested for feasibility. A regional, energetical bond between the buildings TECHbase, ENERGYbase and the Klima-Windkanal had been developed.
Measures to achieve the aim of sustainable wastewater treatment, design and building of constructed wetlands for different types of industrial wastewater for selected enterprises in the food industry, monitoring in order to optimise systems performances
Construction of a local biogas grid in Güssing - Technical and economical concept for the implementation
Decentralized energy supply systems are a very important contribution for the use of regional potentials as these technical solutions are always fitted to specific conditions. Local biogas grids should complement already existing technologies and be analyzed accordingly.
In this research project, models for refurbishment and restructuring of school buildings were developed. The reconstruction concepts contain lists of measures for deploying sustainable building techniques and exemplary case studies for the reorganisation of buildings of different typologies.
Evaluation of requirements and framework conditions for the implementation and the operation of a Contracting Platform for SME´s in Austria for the cost efficient identification and realisation of energy efficiency measures.
Development of systems for the emission-neutral cooling of office, research and urban quarters on the basis of photovoltaic or geothermal energy supply and user integration. Life cycle cost calculations and analyses of grey and operational greenhouse gas emissions allow a holistic assessment.
CoolAIR - Predictive control of natural nighttime ventilation and daylight-optimized shading for passive building cooling
Natural nighttime ventilation and daylight-optimized shadowing are high potential approaches to efficiently and economical cool buildings. Nevertheless, the full potential cannot be acquired, since, if at all, such behavior is manually initiated by users. Goal of this project is the development of an automated, self-learning system that can assess the full cooling capabilities and establish an alternative to conventional air conditioning systems.
Cooling LEC - Energy-flexible buildings by controlling cooling systems via unidirectional communication in local energy communities
As a result of climate change and the rise in temperature, especially due to the increase in active cooling systems, especially at low-voltage level, new challenges are being posed to the electricity system (in particular to the distribution network). Due to the high electrical input of active cooling units and the high density of plants, which are sometimes operated uncoordinated and at unfavorable times, leads to peak consumption in the system. The project Cooling LEC therefore has as its overall objective the development and demonstration of a central control / intelligence of decentralized active cooling systems by further developing the unidirectional communication of ripple control systems to create energy-flexible buildings in the sense of the new approach of "Local Energy Communities" by creating a "special tariff". Ripple control systems have been established for many decades and are available and proven by all energy suppliers. The upscaling potential is very big.
Cooperative Living Volkersdorf (KooWo - Volkersdorf) - sufficiency, space and energy efficiency in the quarter
The jointly planned demonstration project "KooWo" in Volkersdorf aims at reaching sufficiency as well as energy and CO2 reductions in a holistic way. System boundaries are shifted in order not to look only at energy consumption in buildings, relating to unit of floor space, but to consider all use of resources and relating it to persons and social communities.
COP5+ - Further development of a heat- and cooling system with seasonal heat storage at the example of Central Europe´s biggest geothermal depth drilling field
The aim was to increase the overall energy efficiency of Plus-Energy-Houses by making the heat excess of summer available for use in winter. This was carried out by improvements of the technology seasonal heat storage to an intelligent overall system. The biggest geothermal depth drilling field in Central Europe has been established.
On the basis of our relieable CPC-collector SOLARFOCUS S1 we develop the CPC-lightweight construction collector to get more material efficiency and maximum output of solar hightemperature energy.
Creating a concept for the development of a "lubrication service" to maximize plant life on the basis of ionic liquids as special lubricants.
Creating a concept of a "lubrication service" to maximize plant life and reduce their resources consumption - a combination of development service, production and lubricating service.
By means of a criteria catalogue possible sources of error in the construction of passive houses built in wood will be identified both craft specific and concerning the installation of house automation facilities. Solutions will be acquired, a controlling tool for construction sites will be offered.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, the legal, technological and economic aspects of the cross-building exchange of heating and power were analysed separately within a methodological framework which includes different system configurations relevant to the specific situation in Austria.
