Post War Modernist Buildings Under Monument Protection. A Comparative Analysis of Energy Efficient Renewal Case study: Open Air School Franklinstrasse, Wien 21
integral reconstruction of the valuable cultural heritage "Freihof Sulz" to a communication- and action centre; Demonstration project for local culture and life quality, old building techniques, energy saving and ecological reconstruction."
Investigation of factors which support and hinder acceptance: Technical, legal/political and organisational levels considered, focus on innovative solutions with high market potential, thematic focal areas: straw bale building, surface treatment, acoustic and thermal insulation
Development of contracting models for comprehensive renovation service packages.
Potential of future development for industrially produced residential dwellings Enquiry on international tendencies in automated manufacturing and assessment of viable strategies for their implementation into the Austrian building sector
Modernization of a multistorey block of flats with 50 units (built in 1957/58). Renovation up to passive house standard.
Demonstration project for sustainable construction of a working and living environment
Log-fired furnace with low energy performance, optimised to be used in passive house constructions. The desired energy output, ranging from 1 kW to a max-peak of 3 kW, is achieved by an "energy storing unit" (energy-storage material covered by an insulation layer) in combination with valves to control the energy release.
Development of a passive-house-suited external-door-system producible in series production.
Elaboration of high quality data about Passive Houses technology, to be used in training programs for building related professionals.
The S-House is a two-storey straw-bale passive solar design. The building shell demonstrates the potential of straw-bale building and shows the whole spectrum of technical solutions for competitive components made of renewable resources.
Development of technical and economical solutions for high-density housing in timber construction under consideration of future regulatory developments (case study of a 5-story housing complex in Vienna).
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.
Multifunctional building in passive house standard - The building was designed as innovative high-quality passive house (wood construction) with the latest ecological building automation as a pilot project which is multipliable in a reduced respectively altered form in Europe as well as overseas.
The documentary film for ORF/ 3sat and Bayern alpha-TV presents the concept of the passive house. Fascinating pioneer projects of the Austrian Program on Technologies for Sustainable Development, Sub-Program "Building of Tomorrow", have been filmed over several months. The importance of taking care of ecology and sustainability when constructing houses is demonstrated to a large audience.
The Roadmap links with the energy research strategy of the Austrian Council for Research. It was developped together with national stakeholders from industry to deduct recommendations for policy makers. It includes clear suggestions for research topics until 2020 and provides an outlook on the contribution of biomass to the heating sector of a decarbonised energy system in 2050.
Major goals of this study were determination of the number of jobs provided in the thermal solar energy sector, the added economic value created in this sector and the predicted effects of achieving the goals, in order to better evaluate the economic significance of the use of thermal solar energy.
The project „Linking Low Carbon Technologies with Low Carbon Society“ was conducted on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology. In the course of the project a number of recent empirical studies on rebound effects were analysed. Based on this comprehensive analysis an overview of strategies for rebound management was compiled and policy recommendations for the technology sector were developed.
The ecology and economy of housing. An assessment system for the evaluation of the suitability of buildings and housing estates for the future.
