HEROES - Houses for Energy- and ResOurce Efficient Settlements

A simplified method will be developed for the calculation of environ­mental indicators for so far not considered building elements (eg. constructions, which are not thermally relevant and HVAC-components). The theoretical principles for the calculation of the primary energy demand and the CO2-Emissions for operating and raising a building will be harmonized.

HotCity - Gamification as a possibility to generate data for energy-oriented neighbourhood planning

The aim of the project was a functional test to determine whether an up-to-date data set of energy-oriented data can be collected for neighbourhood planning through gamification, cost-efficiently, quickly and reliably. This had been determined using the example of the potential determination of industrial and commercial waste heat sources in Vienna and Graz.

HOTSPOTS - Holistic thermographic screening of urban physical objects at transient scales

HOTSPOTS enables new insights and perspectives for city development. According to the project idea innovations in acquisition and sensing as well as densification of geo-referenced city related data are supple­mented by novel processing chains in city data analytics. Driven by an integrated scientific approach we develop a novel method in the selec­tion, evaluation and prioritization of infrastructural city development measures which is directly derived from sensed data hence reducing the risk of ad-hoc decisions or lack in impact.

Housing 4.0 - digital platform for affordable living

The main aim of this project is the development of an integrated framework for the digital platform "Housing 4.0"; thus supporting integrated planning and project delivery through coupling various digital tools and databases. Thereby, the potentials of BIM for modular, off-site housing assembly in order to improve planning and construction processes, reduce cost and construction time and allow for mass customization will be explored. The novel approach in this project is user-involvement; which has been neglected in recent national and international projects on off-site, modular construction, supported by digital technologies.

HPZ-Walls - High-performance exterior brick walls without additional thermal insulation

Sustainable multi-storey housing made of bricks can only be realised if the strength of thermally optimised vertical coring bricks is tripled. This is to be achieved by changing the hole pattern, namely by reducing the air gap from 8 to 4 mm. A success of the project will form the basis for the realisation of insulation-free, 8-storey residential and office buildings in brick construction.

IDsolutions - Solutions for the refurbishment within existing building stock with interior insulation

The refurbishment of existing building stock demands solutions within single units. Interior insulation is a suitable technology. The challenge is to bring multiple demands and requirements together to create optimal solutions. Therefore it's necessary to arrange individual system components to form working model refurbishment solutions. The development of such solutions is the aim of the project. Not only durability and quality is to be ensured, but also user acceptance. Increasing the rate of refurbishments is the overall aim of the project.

IEA EBC Annex 68: Indoor Air Quality Design and Control in Low Energy Residential Buildings

In this project, the scientific basis and data for a coupled calculation and evaluation of indoor air quality and energy efficiency of residential buildings were developed. Assessment metrics and detailed air pollutant models were developed and integrated into the building simulation to derive guidance for the planning and operation of energy-efficient residential buildings.

IEA ECBCS Annex 49: Low Exergy Systems for High-Performance Buildings and Communities

The objective of Annex 49 is the development of approaches for reducing the exergy demand of buildings, so as to reduce the CO2 emissions of the building stock and support structures for sustainable and reliable energy systems in the building sector. To achieve the objectives of Annex 49, the following activities have been carried out:Application of exergy analysis and providing tools, guidelines, best-practice examples and background information for planners and decision makers in the fields of construction, energy and politics Support of cost-efficient low-energy/exergy measures for renovation and new building taking into account both the residential and the service sector Promotion of exergy-related performance analysis of buildings, particularly from the perspectives of communities / regions

IEA ECBCS Annex 50: Prefab Systems for Low Energy/High Comfort Building Renewal

Development of integrated concepts for multi-storey buildings, which enable renovations of buildings with high energy efficiency at good user acceptance during the realisation phase as well as afterwards (comfort, affordability). Relevant components: integrated solutions of roof and façade with high rate of pre-fabrication, the possibility of integrating the energy façade/roofs and energy distribution and supply.

IEA SHC Task 37: Advanced Housing Renovation with Solar & Conservation

Development of advanced renovation concepts for residential buildings. For the housing segments with the greatest energy saving potentials strategies for increased market penetration of advanced housing renovation are investigated. Analysing outstanding renovation projects shall lead to technically and economically robust and sustainable concepts for housing renovation.

Increase of in-house consumption by building clusters and active storages (Eigenlast Cluster)

The project involved the evaluation of the significance of new appro­aches for the increase of in-house consumption of solar energy (electric energy and heat) of buildings in Großschönau, which are already equip­ped for such measurements. The existing municipal buildings, commercial buildings and households are aggregated to form virtual building clusters. Subsequently, the clusters were analyzed according to their in-house consumption with and without the usage of batteries and H2 storages. The economic analysis of this concept derives from a regional implementation plan for further industrial re­search.

Indicators for urban areas – for construction, operation and mobility in climate-friendly areas

Development and coordination of indicators for energy and ecological evaluations of urban areas based on the Swiss 2000-Watt certification system. The results will be used for the development of a quality assurance system for urban areas similar to the klimaaktiv declaration for buildings and the e5 certification for communities.

INN'FIT4UM - Innsbruck "Fit4UrbanMission" - climate neutral Innsbruck 2030

Cities are the place where decarbonization strategies for energy, transport and buildings intersect. A few years ago, the municipality of Innsbruck set up a Smart City Group consisting of staff from the municipality, IIG, IKB and IVB to address this challenge. The goal of INN'F4UM is to develop a step-by-step plan to achieve climate neutrality for the city by 2030, building on an up-to-date representation of energy and resource flows together with the University of Innsbruck.

InnoGOK – Investigation of the energetic and ecological usability of solar radiation on urban spaces and paths

Examination of the suitability of street space or other paved or not paved surfaces in urban areas for promoting renewable heat from solar radiation. Thus offers a high potential for increasing energy efficiency and conserving resources in urban contexts. Besides, the dissipation of heat from large solar-heated surfaces promises to prevent urban heat islands.

Innovation & Cost efficiency: Building standards for multi family residential buildings at optimal cost (Inno-Cost)

In this project, innovative building standards were examined concerning their economical aspects through the life cycle of a building. By means of life cycle-costs for 40-50 multi family lowest energy and passive house residential buildings on actual data from the day-to-day operation, reliable data and know-how was compiled for the first time, which is to support further market penetration of innovative building standards in the field of multi family residential buildings.
