SolSPONGEhigh - High solar fraction due to thermally activated components in urban environments

Thermally activated building components (TABS) have been used in buildings for quite some time, with underfloor heating being the most widespread application as near-surface activation in combination with low-temperature heating systems in residential buildings.

Based on a comprehensive survey of processes, process and reactor technologies of relevant industrial sectors suitable for solar energy supply , the SolarReaktor exploratory project is developing a radically innovative and re-designed solar reactor concept, identifyng the necessary research needs and evaluating its potential applications.

 

Nutricoal - Verfahrensentwicklung zur Herstellung eines biobasierten Düngemittels mit dosierter Nährstofffreisetzung

Das Projektziel ist die Entwicklung eines Verfahrens für die Herstellung eines festen, lagerfähigen und emissionsfreien biologischen Produkts mit modifizierbaren bodenverbessernden Eigenschaften aus ungenützten organischen Abfall- und Reststofffraktionen der lebensmittelverarbeitenden Industrie. Grundbaustein des Nutricoal-Produktes ist Biokohle, die aus bislang aufwändig zu entsorgenden organischen Abfällen der fleischverarbeitenden Industrie mittels Pyrolyse gewonnen wird. Es werden je nach gewünschten Produkteigenschaften spezifische funktionelle chemische Gruppen an der Kohleoberfläche durch spezielle Aktivierungsmaßnahmen generiert.

Für die Nährstoffaufladung der Kohle wird anaerob verarbeiteter Schlachtabfall d. h. Gärrest mittels eines innovativen Niedrigtemperaturverfahrens (Membrandestillation) aufkonzentriert und als Nährstofflieferant eingesetzt. Zusätzlich zum Konzentrat wird auch Reinwasser gewonnen, dass als aufbereitetes Prozesswasser im Betrieb eingesetzt werden kann. Das Membrandestillationsverfahren wird im Rahmen des Projektes von AEE INTEC entwickelt.

Im Projekt wird die gesamte Verfahrenskette an einzelnen Versuchsanlagen der Projektpartner erprobt, die Ergebnisse im Labor ausgewertet und als Basis für Simulationsberechnungen verwendet. Mit Projektende können Aussagen zur erreichbaren Produktqualität, zur Energieeffizienz des Verfahrens und zur Dimensionierung einer möglichen Pilotanlage gemacht werden.

 

HPC (Heat Pumping Systems Control) - Model-based control of absorption heat pumping systems

In this project a new model-based control of absorption heat pumping systems with the working fluid ammonia / water and water / lithium bromide will be developed. The developed control system is going to be experimentally validated and verified with test runs based on practical requirements to identify the potential for improvements.

 

EUREMnext - Taking European EnergyManagers to next efficiency levels by implementing energy audit recommendations - EUREMnext

The overall goal of the EU funded project „EUREMnext“ is to enrich the well-established EUREM European EnergyManager trainig program, making it available in new countries to allow more persons to become qualified/accredited experts or upgrade their knowledge and skills, and adding ancillary implementation support activities. Thereby contribute to increasing the quality of energy audit results, the probability of implementation of the recommendations, and ultimately the energy efficiency and competitiveness of the businesses.

 

SmaCiSe - Smart City Sensing – Thermal Screening of Physical Objects and Air-quality at Urban Scale

The project aims at innovations concerning georeferenced urban data acquisition and innovative data processing for digital urban data analytics. Three dimensional microclimatic and air quality models will be created gained from measured surface temperatures and air quality data of different heights. For data acquisition dedicated detector instruments mounted on zeppelins, drones and UAVs will be used. The project focuses on thermal environmental analysis and three dimensional small-scale data acquisition of air pollutant concentrations in Austria and China / Guandong.

 

AMSL 2030 – Future Hub

Amstetten Smart City Life 2030 - FutureHub

Amstetten hat die klare Vision, die Quartiersentwicklung im freiwerdenden ÖBB Bahnhofsgelände als Anlass für einen großen Schritt in Richtung Zero-Emission-City zu nutzen. Ein systemischer Ansatz zur nachhaltigen Wärme- und Kälteversorgung unter anderem mit einen Niedrigtemperaturnetz mit technischen Maßnahmen auf Gebäude- sowie Quartiersniveau sowie Initiativen zur Veränderung des Mobilitätsverhaltens sollen zur mittelfristigen Senkung des CO2-Footprints beitragen.

 

SCORES - Self-Consumption of Renewable Energy by Hybrid Storage Systems

SCORES will combine and optimize the multi-energy generation, storage and consumption of local renewable energy (electricity and heat) and grid supply, bringing new sources of flexibility to the grid, and enabling reliable operation with a positive business case in Europe’s building stock.

 

giga_TES - Giga-Scale Thermal Energy Storage for Renewable Districts

To reach 100 % renewable energy supply in a long term, district heating (DH) networks require large-scale thermal energy storage (TES) technologies such as pit and tank storage. These would enable a) seasonal storage of heat from renewables such as solar thermal energy and b) flexible heat storage from waste heat sources (e.g., power plants, waste incineration) as well as power-to-heat. As these systems need to be implemented in an urban environment, the required surface area should be minimized to compensate for the relatively high land value in an urban environment. These minimized costs can be achieved by moving the system below surface level and further decreased by allowing usage of the surface area for recreation or installation of solar collector fields.

 

OptSmallGrids - Opimization of small district heating systems

Heating networks are considered to be one of the key technologies in regard to energy transformation because of facilitating smart connection of different renewable energy sources, waste heat, storages, heat consumers and coupling the networks to other energy supply networks such as power and gas to increase the overall efficiency, the economic performance and the reduction of CO2 emissions of future energy systems.

ISEC 2018 - Experts from 51 countries discussed the contribution of the heating sector to achieving global climate targets at ISEC 2018 in Graz

370 experts from science, industry and energy policy from 51 countries took part in the International Sustainable Energy Conference (ISEC 2018) held in Graz from 3 to 5 October 2018 as part of the Austrian EU Presidency.

The conference focused on the heating sector and resource efficiency in a networked sustainable energy system. Results offer enormous opportunities for innovative research institutions and companies.

In the public discussion on the transition from a fossil to a sustainable energy system, the energy policy focus is very often only on the electricity sector, which accounts for only 20% of global final energy consumption. Implementation of the agreement reached at the UN climate protection conference in Paris in December 2015 to limit global warming below 2°C is only possible if the heat sector is also rapidly converted to renewable energy sources.

"This will not only be achieved through electrification of the heating sector and power to gas technologies," said Prof. Hans Martin Henning of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Freiburg in his Key-note speech.

In addition to the 5 Key-note speeches by representatives of the European Commission and the International Energy Agency, 76 experts presented and discussed strategies for the decarbonisation of cities and industrial processes as well as measures in energy spatial planning.

A UNIDO workshop, which also took place within the framework of ISEC 2018, offered the opportunity to network with seven energy centers in developing countries.

The conference was organized by AEE - Institute for Sustainable Technologies with the support of the Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism, the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund, the Province of Styria and the City of Graz.
