Energy restoration of a historical residential building
Support for the erection of the demonstrative housing project consisting of 7 houses (5 Low energy houses, 1 passive house and 1 "next to passive house")
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.
Within the framework of this project system-, structural- as well as building physical basis theories should be elaborated, which will serve as a basis for constructional and aesthetically attractive solutions for the production of facade integrated solar collectors without thermal separation. The recyclability of the materials used and resource efficiency play a central role when it comes to the development of constructional solutions.
Documentation, comparison and optimisation of solar combisystems for domestic hot water preparation and space heating in the framework of an IEA research project
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.
Elements for the discussion for Technology Platforms, R&D Programs and decision makers in R&D Policy
Optimisation of weatherproof-performance (UV-protection and water-tightness) of binderfree cellulose compounds (incl. life cycle optimisation)
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.
Holistic sanitation concepts for three selected army barracks belonging to the Austrian armed forces to achieve the standard of a low-energy house. An increase in energy efficiency and corresponding models for implementation agreed with large-volume buildings with due consideration to the special conditions prevalent within the Austrian armed forces.
The purpose of the work is to analyze the possibilities of the reduction of the energy demand of residential buildings by using telecommunication technologies such as mobile phones or Internet. Lowering room and water temperature during the absence of the inhabitants are of particular relevance.
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."
Advanced and Sustainable Housing Renovation
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.
Examples of innovative construction methods for new building and for renovation.
Standardisation of testing criteria of acknowledged eco-labels in co-operation with the specialised trade for building products.
