Sustainable Industrial Resource Management in selected priority sectors of Nicaragua (NICATEC)

The goal of the project is to establish the prerequisites for the sustainable use of solar thermal energy in the food and tourism sectors of Nicaragua. To achieve this goal a comprehensive training programme is going to be carried out. Furthermore feasibility studies will be carried out and several demonstration projects are going to be installed in close cooperation of AEE INTEC and CPML (National Cleaner Production Centre Nicaragua).

 

ROSH - development and marketing of integrated concepts for energy efficient and sustainable retrofitting of social housing

ROSH stands for retrofitting of social housing and was an European project for developing and marketing integrated concepts for energy efficient and sustainable retrofitting of social housing funded by Intelligent Energy Europe. The project was implemented from January 2006 to June 2008 by twelve partner organisations from Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Poland.

 

„Energy in minds!“

- an EU project from the CONCERTO initiative in the 6th framework program

 

klima:aktiv haus

Klima:aktiv haus” is an Austrian program to promote ecological low and passive energy buildings within the framework of an “climate protection” initiative of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management. The target markets are multi-storey residential buildings as well as single-family houses, with the emphasis on prefabricated buildings. The network “climate active new buildings” started in July 2005 and will run for 4 years.

 

Thermography and consulting service

The Thermography and Consulting Campaign of the Austrian state Styria was initiated five years ago by the department of housing funding (A 15). The campaign helps building owners with practically relevant building renovation measures and is coordinated by the Grazer Energieagentur (energy agency of the city of Graz).

 

ökosan – modernisation-initiative East Styria

Dramatically increasing energy prices and the future EU building directive, which require “energy certificates”, make it obvious: an energetic modernisation of existing buildings is a reasonable and necessary investment in the future. For a broad implementation, there is a need of new instruments, for example a combination of comprehensive information and consultancy as well as ecologically oriented public support.

 

Solar energy - a significant economic factor

The development of the use of solar energy in Austria and Europe since the start of the 1980s as well as the Austrian companies and industries involved in marketing this technology, have been documented in the study "Solar energy - a significant economic factor".

One of the important goals of this study was the determination of the number of jobs provided in the thermal solar energy sector and the added economic value created by this sector. Furthermore, the predicted effect of achieving the goals given in the European Commission white paper "Energy for the Future: Renewable Sources of Energy", was investigated in order to better evaluate the economic significance of the use of thermal solar energy.

 

Solar Thermal Polymer Collectors with Overheating Protection

On the background of increasing costs for the main materials of solar thermal collectors polymeric materials offers a significant cost-reduction potential for all-polymeric flat-plate collectors in the low temperature field of application. However, as the long-term service temperature of cost-efficient plastics is limited for potential applications in solar absorbers an appropriate design including overheating protection is essential. The stagnation behaviour may be controlled by thermotropic layers. Such layers change their light transmission behaviour depending on the temperature. Development objectives for such layers were calculated by theoretical modelling.

 

Integrating Environmentally Responsive Elements in Buildings (ENERBUILD)

The energy needed for heating, cooling and ventilation of buildings in the industrial countries represent over 30% of the entire primary energy demand. The building sector is therewith, next to the sectors “transportation” and “agriculture”, one of the main contributors to the greenhouse emission CO2. These facts and the goals in the Kyoto agreement show the importance of the identification of sustainable solutions for the building sector, which will long- to middle-term considerably reduce the emissions that arise from the operation of a building.

 

Development of an interactive vocational Web training tool for the take-off of the buildings DIRECTIVE 2002/91/EC (EEBD)

The building sector presently covers approximately 40% of the total energy demand in the EU. This energy demand can be reduced to 22% through implementation of relevant saving measures, if the economical frameworks are advantageous. These figures clearly show the importance of working active with “the increase in the energy efficient in buildings”. Important, legal frameworks shall be created through the implementation of the EU building directive.
