"Leitbilder" in "energy regions" or how to co-ordinate technical change
In three Austrian regions, which call themselves "energy regions", the processes leading to the formulation of common visions or "leitbilder" is analysed and the impact is assessed such "leitbilder" can have on technical change on the regional scale. On this basis and with help of external consulters adapted communication and network strategies are developed and examined with regard to transferable elements.
Active operation of electrical distribution networks with high share of decentralised power generation
Conceptual design, preparation and development networks areas with active grid operation and a high share of distributed generation. Create the premises for the implementation of innovative demonstration networks by involving of all relevant players.
Agriculture will become an important supplier of sustainable energy services for society. However, this sector can only fulfil this role if it operates on the base of sustainable energy provision itself. The project will determine the necessary measures to achieve this state for a concrete regional setting (eastern Styria) by the year 2020.
BioShip - Potentials of Inland Waterways in Securing the Supply of the Austrian Bio-based Energy Industry
BioShip analyses the potentials to optimise and secure the supply chains of the austrian bio-energy plants (forest fuel, biofuel and biogas) with inland water navigation as an environmental friendly way of transport
Biogas as Vehicle Fuel - Economic Feasibility in Austria
The main objectives of this project are to discuss the economic feasibility of the production and distribution of biogas used as transportation fuel and to identify those types of local distribution systems that are already economically feasible under the present economic conditions in Austria.
By establishing regionally best situated logistic centers it shall be guaranteed that in all of Styria transport and processing costs will be reduced and that a continual supply of biomass firewood of constant quality is ensured.
City Cooling - Intelligent district cooling implementation, Vienna
Development of an intelligent district cooling concept and alternative solutions for heat rejection from central absorption chillers at the example of the neighbourhood TownTown in Vienna.
Conception of innovative business models for active integration into network of decentraliced units for consumers and producers
Conception of economically and technically reasonable business models for network operators, producers as well as end users who have the chance to come into operation in active distribution networks until 2050.
Construction of a local biogas grid in Güssing - Technical and economical concept for the implementation
Decentralized energy supply systems are a very important contribution for the use of regional potentials as these technical solutions are always fitted to specific conditions. Local biogas grids should complement already existing technologies and be analyzed accordingly.
Contracting Platform for SME´s
Evaluation of requirements and framework conditions for the implementation and the operation of a Contracting Platform for SME´s in Austria for the cost efficient identification and realisation of energy efficiency measures.
Design of pumped storage schemes
Development of a new surge tank system for pumped storage schemes (PSS) for the governing of the changing requirements in electricity networks due to integration of renewable, volatile energy sources.
Developing of a application for central visualisation of the energy and resource demand in a private household "ZENVIS"
The main focus of the research project ZENVIS is set on the analysis of the benefits provided by a "visualization device", which gathers the readings of energy and resource consumption (electricity, gas, water, heat energy and fuel consumption). This device ought to find its use in households and to allow the consumer to observe and to control his energy consumption.
Development of agitation systems in biogas plants in order to optimize mixing-behaviour and to reduce energy demand with the help of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation
The purpose of this project is the investigation of the mixing-behaviour and performance of the agitation systems in biogas plants, and to present them through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation. This EDP-tool can model and predict the actual fluid dynamics in a closed system. Thus it may help to plan optimal reactor geometries, position and combination of agitation systems as well as to minimize the energy requirements.

Direct Supply with Cold, Heat, Electricity and further Added Values Using Renewable Fuel for Stationary Fuel Cells
Fuel cells can use local resources and provide regional energy support if optimized. BIO-VISION leads to a demo-project.
Distributed generation and renewables - Power Quality
The project will demonstrate how the integration of power electronics equipment in Distributed Generation (DG) units can actively improve the stability and quality of supply of electric power distribution networks in order to increase the penetration of DG and Renewable Energy Sources.
Efficient biogas processing with membrane technique
Production of natural gas substitute with a newly developed gas permeation technology. Optimization of the process with biogas from energy crops fermentation. Screening of new methods of online product gas quality control.
Electrical peak load in supermarkets - Strategies to improve energy efficiency
Levelling and reduction of electrical peak load in supermarkets by using additional energy storage systems and by managing the consumption of industrial refrigeration facicilties. Techno - economic feasibility study with high potential of replications via involved industrial partners.
Energy Counselling within 60 Minutes
Concept for a high quality, PC supported, 60 minutes energy counselling method, focusing on building refurbishment and new constructions, including a software tested in real counselling situations and a printed documentation.
Energy Performance Contracting (IEA DSM Implementing Agreement - Task X)
The objective of this task within the IEA DSM programme is to facilitate the use of performance contracts and other energy service company (ESCO) contracts. In this scenario, the ESCO has taken on the project's performance risk by guaranteeing a specified level of energy savings. Its compensation for this risk is directly tied to achieving savings. The financing for such a project could come from the ESCO, the equipment supplier or a third-party company.
