The land use and bioenergy sectors from an integrated system. This system has features that are likely to require approaches distinct from those suitable for other sectors. Thus, although a general framework for NAMAs has been developed, requirements appropriate to specific sectors are needed.
Markets and Contribution to the Energy Supply 2001
This study analyses endeavours of several European cities of becoming Smart Cities. The Kyoto Protocol from 2002 as well as the participation in different energy initiatives play a crucial role. The comparison of the results from the different cities shows that Austria has to become more ambitioned and thorough in the realm of its Smart City strategies. The study delivers valuable contributions, examples and motivations.
Examples of innovative construction methods for new building and for renovation.
Participation in TASK 25 of the Implementing Agreements on Solar Heating and Cooling of the International Energy Agency (IEA)
Participation in TASK 25 "Solar Assited Air Conditioning of Buildings". Description and Analys of the state of the art, development of a simulation tool, build up and measurement of demonstration plants.
Factor 10 refurbishment of the General Secondary School II and Polytechnic School of Schwanenstadt (Upper Austria) with prefabricated wooden façade elements and with a comfort ventilation system.
Production of a comprehensive picture of tomorrow's building using research into future trends, the societal framework and political developments in the building sector.
Sunny research! Sustainable building design with high energy performance for a modern commercial building
Commercial buildings of basic to medium standard are hardly ever designed by a high quality of innovative building services engineering. In the project Sunny research! a sustainable building design with high energy performance was developed. The aim was to adapt the aspects of Renewable Energy, thermal comfort and wellness in work.
Conception and implementation of measures to spread selected results from the house of the future - program to the building industry, in particular to meet the target groups architects, builders and building developers.
Participation in the refurbishment process: Monitoring of concrete refurbishment projects and development of guidelines to optimise the planning, information and decision-making processes in the course of the refurbishment of residential properties
An investigation of the economic and ecological usefulness of coupling two CO2 neutral energy sources; solar installations for multi-family houses, producing standardised systems concepts and planning guidelines.
Practicable and passive house capable renovation systems for roof and wall units using high-performance thermal insulation
Renovation of a semidetached house using vacuum insulation panel in area of wall, roof and terrace. The very first time the mechanical mounting systems from VIP is used for special applications in the renovation of facades.
This project developed a novel "bio-pesticide"-formula by screening plant extracts and minerals for their strong repellant activity in order to protect sheepwool insulation from cloth moth infestation. It was investigated and examined by state-of-the-art-technology that the anti-moth-mixture extracted from plants and minerals, acts as a valid alternative to existing pest control agents.
Intelligent and green? User centred scenarios for information technology use in sustainable buildings
The project asked for the contribution of information technology use to the environmental performance of buildings - in terms of the vision of designers, practical use in existing projects and expectations of potential users.
Production of a 45 minutes film about living in the future.
Investigations on the fundamental suitability of sprayed-on and plaster-covered cellulose insulation for thermal insulation of buildings.
Façade and Open Space Modernization with Standard Building Components in Housing of the Fifties und Sixties.
Developing the passive house standard from pilot projects to a common standard in housing projects with an optimum of comfort. Comprehensive transfer initiative of the passive house standard by fairs, exhibitions and lobbying activities in communities.
