SOLTRAIN 2 - Southern African Solar Thermal Training and Demonstration Initiative

In the project SOLTRAIN 2 support is provided for partner countries in Southern Africa to migrate energy supply based on fossil resources to energy supply based on sustainable resources in general and solar thermal in particular.


Energy Concepts for Residential Buildings

Evaluation Tools for Planning and Decision Support by Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. mont. Gerhard Faninger 



Within this project the development of a solar thermal collector for medium temperature (temperature range 80 to 120 deg C) and especially for large scale solar thermal applications is planned. Thereby a completely new concept of vacuum tube collectors in combination with conceptual new hydraulic junctions allowing easy connections of single tubes in series in order to get long thermal lengths will be developed.


SCOOP - Solar COllectors made Of Polymers

The availability of resources and rising prices of the raw materials copper and aluminum lead to the application of alternative materials in the solar thermal industry. Can polymeric materials fulfill the requirements of solar thermal applications?



Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) is currently at the early stages of development. Less than 100 operating solar thermal systems for process heat are reported worldwide, with a total capacity of about 24 MWth (34,000 m²). Most of these systems are of an experimental nature, and are relatively small scale. However, there is great potential for market and technological developments, as 28% of the overall energy demand in the EU27 countries originates in the industrial sector, majority of this is heat in the temperature range below 250°C.




Affirmative Integrated Energy Design Action

The European project AIDA aims to accelerate the market entry of nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB). This means energy efficient buildings and the use of renewable energy sources.



Concepts for ’low-tech’ ventilation systems in large-volume residential buildings and their user comfort.

The project aims to increase the integration of ventilation systems with heat recovery into social and multifamily housing. It will be investigated how central and semi-central ventilation systems are to be optimized, meaning equipped with simply distribution, installation, control and servicing, and also developing prefabricated components.

The experiences with the first wave of applications should lead to simplified (‘low-tech’ ventilation) and optimized innovative solutions with high user’s comfort and high energy efficiency. For field implementation three different varieties of optimized ventilation systems with heat recovery will be designed, simulated/calculated and as a minimum two of them tested in practical operation.



Solar assisted energy supply systems: Opportunities and barriers in a long-term, integrative view

The project deals with the assessment of the integration of solar thermal plants to representative Austrian energy supply systems. Dynamic, long-term (up to 2050) modeling of interactions with building refurbishment and a decentralized heat and electricity generation will be realized. The modeling results and international case studies are used to derive conclusions about options for energy policies. Intensive involvement of stakeholders is considered as an integral part of the project.



The projects’s aim is to show the practicability in terms of integrating big solar thermal systems in brewing industry processes


IEA EBC Annex 56 – Cost Effective Energy and Carbon Emission Optimization in Building Renovation

The Annex aims at developing a new methodology to enable cost effective renovations of existing buildings while optimizing energy consumption and carbon emissions reduction. The main objective is to support decision makers and multipliers by the evaluation of the energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and acceptance (by users, owners and decision makers) of renovation measures towards both the nearly-zero emission and the nearly-zero energy objectives.
