METHODIQA - Development of a quality assurance methodology for Renewable Heat Systems by means of intelligent operational monitoring

The focus of this project is on quality assurance for heat supply systems that combine renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Main objective is the elaboration of the scientific and technical basis for a diagnostics system that aims at cost-effective but high-quality, computer-aided surveillance of system operation of heat supply systems. METHODIQA combines two important renewable heat technologies (solar thermal and biomass); both renewable-only solutions as well as popular combinations of renewable and non-renewable technologies are investigated. Several stakeholders are showing interest in the current project: funding bodies, plant operators and property developers (involved by means of service contracts), and last but not least also the Austrian industry organizations of the two involved renewable heat technologies who agree to co-finance the project.


e80^3-Building – SP 5 Monitoring und Dissamination

Renovation Concepts for Residential Buildings to Plus-Energy Buildings with Prefabricated Active Roof-and Façade Modules, Integrated Building Services and Grid Integration: SP5 monitoring and dissemination



The overall objective of the GREENFOODS project is to lead the European food and beverage industry to high energy efficiency and reduction of fossil carbon emissions in order to ensure and foster the world wide competitiveness, improve the security of energy supply and guarantee the sustainable production in Europe.


e80^3-Building - SP4 Demonstration Project

The main objective of the project is the realization of the previous developments of
the active and passive façade modules and the modules for the building services on a demonstration building in Kapfenberg, Styria.



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.




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
