Gaining extra space for additional households through sustainable renovation and/or extension of 8 detached houses by integrating consulting, planning, energy efficiency concepts and financing.
PLAISIR analyses social innovation in energy projects located in peripheral region in order to understand their role in energy transition processes and to give recommendations for energy-oriented, endogenous regional development policy.
Plan4.Energy develops a set of methods to support the planning of positive energy districts. The data-based system integration will enable a user-friendly quantitative assessment of the possibilities for building a positive energy district. This will allow stakeholders without the relevant background knowledge to realistically assess different project variants.
The present project is based on the results of the project "The energy-efficient hospital: realistic departure points and identification of possible measures"
The city of Melk has set itself the goal of playing a pioneering role in renewable energy supply and climate protection. In this context, an initiative aimed at implementing Positive Energy Districts. Two urban development projects are currently underway to examine under which framework conditions, technical and organisational solutions Positive Energy Districts can be realised. A proactive participation process aims at informing developers and investors as well as other stakeholders about the realization of PlusEnergy concepts.
In course of the refurbishment of the Vienna University of Technology (Univercity 2015) Austria´s biggest plus energy office building is going to be built. This project intends to demonstrate not only the technical but furthermore the economical feasibility of plus energy office buildings. Within this building the plus energy concept is fulfilled by optimizing the power consumption of the whole building and the installation of Austria´s largest facade integrated photovoltaic plant.
The project explores paths to a sustainable, future-proof Positive Energy-District (PED) in the area surrounding the location of the University of Applied Sciences Vienna (FH-Technikum Wien). The feasibility of a new university building as a Plus-Energy teaching building will be examined in detail to prepare its implementation. Central innovation contents are the energetic flexibilization of the new building and the quarter as well as the conception of the Plus-Energy building as a "Living Lab".
In the course of this project, various innovations towards a "Plus-Energy Standard 2.0" are to be implemented and combined in an overall concept for the new viadonau headquarters (via donau - Österreichische Wasserstraßen-Gesellschaft m.b.H.).
plusFacades - International know-how- and knowledge transfer of "intelligent Facade systems" for Austrian players and key personnel
The project proceeds from the idea that prefabricated intelligent facade systems represent a promising technology for the energy efficient refurbishment of buildings. A goal is to process the present international state-of-the-art and the existing know-how to this topic for Austrian experts.
This project examines opportunities, potentials and requirements of/for Agrophotovoltaic systems. Thereby, an interdisciplinary study will be conducted that integrates the major aspects of such systems holistically and from an integrative perspective. The complex interdependencies between the different aspects will be explored and described via a case study. Potential approaches toward realization will be studied and subjected to a comprehensive SWOT-analysis.
The overall objective of the present project is to develop and implement an optimal overheating protection system based on polymeric materials. The aim is to reduce maximum room temperatures in buildings caused by facade integrated solar-thermal collectors in stagnation.
Possibilities of urban high-rise multi-storey buildings in a timber-frame method with target course eight or more floors
Research of urban high-rise multi-storey buildings in a timber-frame construction method. Fundamental clarification of the feasibility in relation to the supporting structure, fire prevention and security. SWOT analysis as well as economic, ecological research concerning sustainable design.
Potential and concepts for waste water heat recovery in combination with solar collectors and heat pumps (WRGpot)
The objective of the project is to find possibilities for the reduction of heat demand for hot water preparation of low energy and passive house buildings, in order to advance a further step into the direction of plus-energy buildings.
PowerShade - Development of electricity-generating shading solutions for energy-flexible buildings in urban space
The main goal of the cooperative R&D project "PowerShade" is the development of low-cost and universally usable electricity-generating shading solutions for energy-flexible buildings in urban space.
PRoBateS - Potentials of planning and building legislation for energetically sustainable city structures
The aims of this project are to analyse planning and building legislation in order to identify barriers, potentials and suitable courses of action for energy-orientated policy measures. Specific policy recommendations are developed with a view to increasing the sustainability of energy-related city structures. For these purposes the project combines two different disciplinary approaches: a thorough legal analysis and a spatial structure and quantitative impact assessment.
Probing for PV façade systems made of lightweight plastic modules with reversible fittings for new and old buildings (PV-FAS_light + easy)
Probing for a new, simple, cost-effective and building-integrated PV facade system made of plastic PV modules through initial investigations for fixing technology, for building physics, for fire protection and for electrical engineering concerning the usability, the areas of applicability and the yield and application potentialfor new buildings and for existing buildings.
This evaluation will examine the effects that the "City of Tomorrow" programme has achieved since its inception. The evaluation is based on extensive surveys of research project participants and various multipliers from application areas such as civil engineering and urban planning. The evaluation thereby creates an important basis for the design of future research funding.
Knowledge transfer, communication and discussion of the results of the Building of Tomorrow programme in the fields of architecture, planning, construction and companies in the building industry.
ProKlim - Optimisation of Energy Efficiency of automated indoor climate systems by using weather forecasts
Investigation of the basic energy savings potential for buildings in commercial use by including weather forecasts as a variable. Additionally, a concept for integrating weather forecasts into the heating and air conditioning control systems in buildings is planned to be developed. Within the scope of the feasibility study, a detailed analysis of technological possibilities, including both hardware and software, will be conducted.
ProKlim+ - Use of Model Predictive Control to optimize solar power consumption in case of increased energy efficiency.
Using weather forecast for building automation can help improving the energy efficiency of buildings and, thus, saving energy. In the project ProKlim+ the forecast of solar radiation will be used to optimize the building automation to satisfy the needs of the building users, and at the same time to minimize the energy demand on the one hand and to maximize the consumption of self-produced energy on the other hand.
