G2G – Innovation axis Graz-Gleisdorf
Development of testbeds and demonstration zones within already designated areas for urban development along the Graz-Gleisdorf Innovation-Axis with a focus on energy, integrated building technology, smart city-spaces, compact settlement structures, generational living, and ‘cities of short ways’. It will pay specific attention to intermodal mobility as well as ICT-based solutions.
Gas supply by local mircro grids
Proof of the technical and economic feasibility of the utilization of fermentation gas from agricultural fermentation gas facilities by means of local micro grids.
Guideline for logistic systems and resource management for renewable resources in Burgenland
The project on hand is applied in the Austrian federal state Burgenland. It investigates possibilities to cover the future biomass demand of the county with resources from the county.
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.
Heat in containers
Storage of industrial waste heat in latent heat storage systems (common transport containers). Use of the heat in commercial enterprises and public or private buildings with integration of conventional energy suppliers. Technical and financial feasibility study.
Hydrogen from renewables in Austria - an energy carrier of the future?
Renewable hydrogen in Austria: Future perspectives for the production and use of hydrogen from renewable energy in Austria with the identification of projects to demonstrate the role of renewable hydrogen in an efficient and flexible energy system.
IEA Bioenergy Task "GHG Balances"
Participation in the investigation net of the IEA Bioenergy to greenhouse gas balance of biomass and bioenergetics systems as well as coordination of the Austrian participation in IEA Bioenergy.
IEA HPP Annex 28: Test procedure and seasonal performance calculation for residential heat pumps
Test procedure and seasonal performance calculation for residential heat pumps with combined space heating and heating of tap water - IEA Heat Pump Program Annex 28
IEA ISGAN Annex 3: Benefit/Cost Analyses and Tools of Smart Grids
Together with experts from 11 countries, the EI-JKU has analysed cost-benefit models and developed proposals for their adaptation and further development. In the course of the work, the EI-JKU dealt in particular with two questions: how such an evaluation model can be adapted to Austrian conditions and which socio-economic factors influence the question of whether an end consumer emerges as a winner or loser from Smart Grid-based functionalities.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2013-2018)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. By active participation, Austria’s position and leading role on the forefront of international Smart Grids development has been strengthened.
IEA ISGAN Annex 5: Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN). (Working period 2019-2021)
The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. The focus during the working period 2019-2020 was laid on the implementation of extended interoperability tests and innovative laboratory testing methods for decentralised energy resources. By active participation, Austria’s position and leading role on the forefront of international Smart Grids development was strengthened.

The Smart Grids International Research Facility Network (SIRFN) aims at improving the implementation of Smart Grids technologies by collaboration between smart grid testing facilities, test beds, and large-scale demonstrations. In the working period 2021-2022, the focus will be laid on the development of extended interoperability tests for decentralised energy resources and micro grids.
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.
Indicators of social sustainability for energy regions of the future (SONAH)
Set of social sustainability indicators, oriented at practice needs, and concept for their use in energy strategy processes, regional energy concepts, planning and operation of plants generating renewable energy
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.
Innovative Concepts for Pumped Storage in Liberalized Grids
In liberalized grids the requirements for pumped storage equipment rise dramatically. The development of a controllable pump turbine to help stabilize the grid is one of the possible solutions to this problem.
Innovative energy services in the sector trade and industry
Systematic reduction of THG in the sector trade and industry through market economical energy services. Research project to improve the energy efficiency of the end user as well as the integration and utilization of renewable energy in the energy service models.
Integral Resource Optimisation Network - Concept
An integral control network for optimizing the resource "electrical energy". Concept for new, innovative services for the power market based on the latest advances in the field of modern information- and communication technologies.
Integral Resource Optimization Network Study
A robust, distributed control network for optimizing the resource "electrical energy". Consumers, producers and storages network in a self-organized way and coordinate autonomously their usage of electrical energy. Load-shaping, transparent flow of information, system-wide increase in efficiency.
Integration by Cooperation
The aim of the project was to assess which forms and conditions of interaction can foster the integration of higher shares of distributed generation into the Austrian electricity grid.
