The aim of the "Anergy2Plus" project is to take a holistic approach to the design, construction and ultimately the use of a residential quarter in the context of energy supply. In the area of thermal energy supply, the demonstration of a supply concept based on cold district heating is intended to create a project on the way to a plus-energy quarter. The demonstration will be supported by a comprehensive monitoring concept. In successive construction phases, further innovative measures will be considered at component and system level. Measures for user integration are embedded in the demonstration, operation and further planning.
The HIPSTERS project deals with fundamental research into an innovative extraction technology and the best extraction agents in order to continuously dissolve proteins directly from biogenic food residue suspensions and recover them for further processing.
Within the framework of the IEA ECES Annex 36, knowledge exchange is taking place at international level between research institutions, industry and decision-makers with regard to the technology of Carnot batteries. Carnot Batteries are an innovative electricity storage system that store electrical energy as thermal energy.
Stanz + is elaborating an energy strategy for structurally weak municipalities with specific measures for redevelopment of existing buildings and densification with regard to the building stock as well as the integration of renewable energy sources in the municipality of Stanz im Mürztal (Styria). The project includes approaches that can be duplicated with regard to energy autonomy, flexibility of the energy networks and energetical revitalization involving users in the "Rural Pioneers Community" in order to develop and use energy services.
"TechAdZero" investigates the energetic potential and explores optimized configurations of smart adaptive façades for non-residential, nearly-zero-energy high-rise buildings. The project focuses on maximizing energy performance of high-rise building façades by adapting or combining various façade elements to achieve optimal dynamic façade properties for thermal conductivity, solar heat gain, energy transmission, light transmittance, renewable solar energy, shading and ventilation.
RENEWnow explores an innovative approach for the highly energy-efficient renovation of apartment buildings in Austria. The aim is to develop a new service model (one-stop shop) for property managers, housing and owner associations through a targeted, novel mix of technical and non-technical measures.
