Development of affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses" (Plus-Hybrid)
"Plus-Hybrid" integrates knowledge and experience from current activities and complement them by adopting a holistic approach, considering the intelligent interconnection of components as well as managing the planned efforts and human resources in time. The goal of this project was to develop affordable building equipment and services for future "Energy Plus houses".
Development of high quality ecological solutions for thermal insulation systems on the basis of reed
Exterior and interior insulation systems containing reed as insulation material were developed. The solutions integrate insulation material, fastening and plaster (as well as optional heating for the interior insulation). A concept for the renovation of an old building using a reed insulation system was developed.
E.Vent – Efficient, cost-effective and low-maintenance central ventilation systems for multi-family housing – Design, operation and fire protection measures
Die Synopsis ist eine drei- bis vierzeilige Beschreibung des Projektinhalts alsErgänzung zum Titel und nähere Erläuterung des Projekts.
ECR Energy City Graz-Reininghaus: Urban strategies for the new conception, construction, operation and restructuring of an energy self-sufficient city district
The aim is the development of a valid set of specific values and a guideline as a basis for energy self-sufficient district development. Based on the results, a masterplan (energy-network) for the district Graz-Reininghaus shall be developed. Future-oriented "city-building-blocks" will be implemented as flagships of innovation.
EPIKUR – Energy efficiency potential of intelligent measures of urban densification
The present research proposal focused on the possibility, implications and consequences of "inwards urban expansion" through densification of the existing urban tissue. In this context, densification is not only approached through known and common aspects of building regulations and guidelines, but in view of what is actually possible to achieve.
Ecological restoration of a listed building with passive house technologies
Ecological exemplary reconstruction of the "Haidenhof"-building, Bad Ischl, Upper Austria. Building refurbishment with respect to monumental protection and newest passive house technologies. Reorganisation of the former residential building to an academy of arts and culture.
EnerPHit-green concept Modernisation of a historic building with application of an aerogel insulation plaster
This demonstration project shows the comprehensive modernization of a historic building within the constraints of a regional protection zone. By using the Aerogel high-performance insulating plaster, a comprehensive energy-efficient building refurbishment had been realized without changing the outer appearance of the façade.
Energetic roof including window, PV and thermal solar components as on-roof and façade module - on-roof and façade module
Development of a novel on-roof respectively façade module, which includes a thermal solar component as well as photovoltaics and a skylight. With the serial implementation of this development idea there should be offered for the first time an energetic roof as retrofitting kit for existing buildings.
Energy Plus House Weber - highest energy efficiency in the tension between tradition and modernity
The tension between tradition and modernity is shown and exemplarily solved on the example of the historic farmhouse "vulgo Weber". The object was converted into an energy plus house with an exceptionally holistic approach and also thought as a demonstration object for a broad public through the touristic use of the house.
Energy efficient, resource conserving and differentiated renovation of historic European building stocks (ReCoRe)
The project goal was the development of an integrated, long term and life cycle oriented approach to sustainable modernisation of historical building stocks. Within this project the partners used common objectives and planning tools and followed a common procedure in order to develop a specific national application which results from a historical, technical, social and cultural understanding of the specific national stock fragments.
Evaluation of temperature differentiation on a room-by-room basis in passive house apartments
In the passive house Utendorfgasse a room–by-room temperature control was installed in 11 apartments. The experiences were evaluated from a technological and from a sociological point of view.
Exploration of window systems with innovative glass - especially vacuum insulating glass - for building renovation
Exploration of the use of the first fabricable highly insulating vacuum glazing (VG) for highly efficient window systems specifically for the renovation of existing buildings via Verification of the availability and performance of Vacuum Glazing VG worldwide, concepts for structural optimization and thermal simulations of integrated systems, investigation of typical applications and market potential studies and identification of achievable energy savings for single buildings and settlements.
First energy autonomous revitalization of an urban former industry quarter with the standard type of "Passive House" to reduce primary energy max. 100 kWh/m2 NFL
A renovation with the energy efficient factor 10+ of a former industry quarter in the standard type of passive house with usage of the most modern technologies and locally renewable energy resources.
First remediation of already existing homes to passive house standard with Vacuum insulated panels (VIPs)
Demonstration of the way to redevelop a home of the 19th century to passive house standard in consideration of moisture process and the use of vacuum insulation.
From courtyards to lightyards
The feasibility of daylight-optimized solutions for retrofitting courtyards by an intelligent alignment of different materials has been examined. With it, daylighting levels in lower floors can realistically be increased tenfold. Additionally, a calculation tool for generating and evaluating optimal courtyard solutions was designed. Besides daylighting parameters also economic criteria were considered.
Future Quarter - Way to an energy-plus quarter in Vienna
Development of transferable concepts for energy-plus quarters as substantial preparatory work for the implementation of an energy showcase quarter in Vienna based on six concrete areas. The support for the broad application of the concept shall be a precursor for the realisation of future energy showcase quarters in Vienna and other cities.
Gründerzeit with future - demonstration project 1: David´s Corner
High value energy efficient refurbishment of an ensemble of three neighbouring Wilhelminian style buildings in a non-lucrative location.
Gründerzeit with future - demonstration project 2: ROOFJET Wißgrillgasse - sustainable solution for improving the thermal-energetic performance of a typical historical building in Vienna
The main aim of the project ROOFJET Wißgrillgasse is a building refurbishment by a factor of 8 which demonstrates that even historical buildings can be refurbished to lowest energy standard.This demonstration project shows a holistic and sustainable refurbishment concept for a special type of buildings with innovative technical and organizational solutions.
Gründerzeit with future - demonstration project 3: KA 7 Kaiserstraße - Innovative renovation of a listed Gründerzeit building
A demonstration of how innovative measures, with highly efficient and contemporary standards and taking into consideration comfort and energy consumption, can be applied to a heritage listed building.
Gründerzeit with future - sub project 2: Foundations and feasibility studies
Documentation of available knowledge on the renovation of historical buildings ("Gründerzeitgebäude") as an input for the preparation of 5 demonstration projects as well as the development of an accompanying monitoring system within the scope of the project "Gründerzeit with future".
