Standardisation of testing criteria of acknowledged eco-labels in co-operation with the specialised trade for building products.
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.
The project aim is the clarification and PR-reevaluation of the thematic field "energy/energy saving" as a chance to study users and market forces close and factual to have a secure base for the development of new concepts, slogans and incentives in Austria.
Results of the 1st Smart Grids ERA-Net Workshop on 3th March, 2010
The market development of the examined technologies was restrained or marked by decreasing figures in 2014. An exception was the area of wind power. The use of solid biogenous fuels was reduced in 2014 due to an exceptionally mild heating period. The sum of the heating degrees for 2014 war 21 % less than the longtime average.
Development of extensive storey-high modular parts made of renewable primary products (wood, straw, hemp) for clay-passive houses.

Advanced and Sustainable Housing Renovation
Services for a comprehensive ecological renovation should comprise advice, design and construction as well as "green" building assessment and innovative financing models. Such services are developed together with companies in the construction business and tested in pilot projects.
The first joint project of the four IG passive house organisations on behalf of the programme line "Building of Tomorrow" - an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology - for the purpose of setting up a detailed network documentation of 80% of all passive houses in Austria.
Seasonal storage of solar heat for use in low energy and passive houses (new buildings as well as old buildings).
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.
Motives behind the wish of living in a certain way - here, especially in a detached house - explained through a life-style concept
Arrangement of a passive house village for test living in the context of an innovative settlement expansion. Building up a large dimensioned passive house for consulting, training, exhibitions, research and distribution of passive house technology and know-how in the field of energy efficient and sustainable building.
theoretical topics: Optimization of natural light, ambient humidity and of private exterior space, planted over buildings, evaluation of the energetic performance and special challenges of large volume "Passivhaus" residential buildings. applied research: concept for the renovation of a 13 storey residential building for senior citizens built in 1974 to PassivHaus standards, applying the results attained in the theoretical part.
Development of an consultancy model to promote ecologic and economic sustainable building solutions within the planning process. Analysis of the efficiency of guided (integral) meetings with architects, planners, and experts for different items.
In the on hand project an adsorber/desorber for a solar operated/district heating operated one-level adsorption chiller with water as cooling agent and silica gel as adsorbent agent will be planned for a low range of performance (2 to 50 kW refrigerating capacity). It will be implemented as a test-/pilot plant. Hence these two substances are an alternative to the HFCKW´s cooling agents that are used nowadays.
Systematical description, analysis and comparison of all ecological, economic and social sus-tainability of the systems aspects of housing subsidy for new buildings and the renovation of buildings across the federal provinces of Austria; an analysis of regional-economic effects and a statistical-econometric analysis of the allocation effects of housing subsidies.
