There are 426 results.
The aim of the project was the implementation of an innovative energy consumption monitoring concept with the active integration of the residents and a study of the resulting effects on the energy consumption behaviour.
Urban consolidation Lehen - subproject 6a and 6b: Energy efficient urban districts by means of community organizing and social measures in urban consolidation
Community organizing is used as a method to develop an activating social process to inform and include involved people in the district concerning new buildings but also in the process of urban renewal. Experiences and feedback were worked on scientifically to give feedback to the community as well as to builders and planners.
Urban consolidation Lehen - Subproject 8a: project management - documentation - dissemination and quality assurance
The project coordinates several projects in the urban quarter Lehen to ensure increase of energy efficiency and sustainable development. This subproject contains the coordination of the partners and projects in order to reach defined standards of quality, coordination and cooperation with the program "Building of Tomorrow" and other flagship projects as well as the documentation of results.
Urban district heating extended – Development of flexible and decarbonized urban district heating systems
Development of innovative urban district heating systems by integration of long-term thermal storage, large scale heat pumps, large scale solar thermal installations, waste heat recovery and analysis and evaluation by simulation. The results of this project will provide templates for technology selection, system design and merit order for new urban district heating areas.
Challenges fort he cities of tomorrow with research issues referring to resource management, efficiency and technology development
The use of natural resources in long-lived products and buildings has led to the build-up of enormous urban material stocks. The present project analyses the potential of these urban mines to increase the resource efficiency of modern cities.
The research project Urban MoVe will investigate to what extent private-law contracts (e.g. mobility contracts, funds, urban development contracts) are suitable as municipal planning and steering instruments for mobility at residential locations based on best practice analyzes and implemented national practical examples.
urban pv+geotherm - Innovative concepts for the supply of large volume buildings/ quarters with PV and geothermal energy
The use of renewable energies in inner city locations is mostly linked to higher costs andconsidered as problematic. The aim of this project was to optimize (cost and energy) heating (and where required, cooling) using geothermic and photovoltaic for an urban, densely-built development area. With the project´s findings it will be easier to ecologically and economically plan the use of renewable energies especially in urban areas.
The project "Urban wind energy" aims to create the basis for the assessment of roof-mounted small wind turbines (SWT) in urban areas. Therefore, methods for the characterisation of turbulent wind flow fields are developed and on the other hand the impacts of turbulent wind conditions with reference to selected turbulence indicators on the performance of small wind turbines are investigated. The overall aim of the project is to address the question how to evaluate sites in urban areas for the application of small wind turbines.
Urbane GmbA aims to explore and assess the potential of greenable area from building and obscured stock (vertical and horizontal areas) in Vienna, to apply currently available survey instruments and to show research and development needs.
URSOLAR provides decision makers with a roadmap for the integrated use of solar energy in urban environments. The roadmap shows, how photovoltaics- and solar-thermal installations can be used in an ecological, economical and socially optimal way whilst considering legal requirements as well as infrastructural conditions in typical city quartiers and stakeholder interests.
Using buildings as energy storage - Monitoring project: Detached house H and detached house F Energy source wind power – Energy source solar power
Monitoring and comparison of performance of thermally activated building components in two similarly built, inhabited detached houses with different energy sources (wind and solar power). The functionality of energy supply through wind power or solar energy will be investigated as well as the verification of the practicability of self-regulating system control due to building temperature behaviour. The results provide an insight into the calculation assumptions, system control and feasibility of the smart grid technology.
Knowledge consolidation of the exploratory project VIG_SYS_RENO; This project focused on the application of vacuum glass in existing casement windows for purposes of energetic performance improvement of buildings. Expected results include new insights about and a guideline for the application and utilization of vacuum glass products in existing window systems.
Ventilation and heating in passive houses: Comparison of variants in terms of thermal comfort and sustainability
This projects aims at systematic resarch on thermal comfort and the sustainability of heating passive houses with and without air heating. The results of the comprehensive investigation of different variants will provide valuable information for building developers, planners and for funding decisions.
VERTICAL FARMING - Investigation on requirements of a Vertical Farm-prototype development for crop plant production
In the center of interest stands the investigation of fundamental principles for a new building typology – the Vertical Farm. Urban vertical food production can contribute to more energy efficient cities by concurrently reducing land use. Substantial influencing factors to achieve these goals are intended to be revealed.
The project researches possibilities and potentials of highly efficient use of space through modern concepts of "stacked" functions and vertical production.
VisErgyControl - Integral control system for daylight and artificial lighting for high visual and melanopic comfort with minimized primary energy consumption
Within the project VisErgyControl an integral, simulation-based, energy-efficient open loop daylight and artificial lighting control system had been developed. The research project focuses on the visual and melanopic requirements of users while minimizing the energy consumption for heating and cooling.
Technical preparation of the functional model from the window and facadesystem walchwindow04 to a serial production-oriented prototype. Developing the new production processes and technologies
The subject of this project is the design, development and demonstration / test operation of a total system of energy exchange (electricity) across buildings and building-integrated energy production for different types of buildings (residential, office, laboratory buildings).
Whiscers is a system for installing internal wall insulation with minimal mess, whilst the resident remains in the property. It involves measuring the walls in the property using a laser device that enables fast and highly accurate measurement. Information is then sent electronically to a computer controlled off-site cutting machine that is rapid, precise and mess-free.
