Research Activities

  • E-Red

    State-of-the-art of potential primary and secondary measures for slow heat release appliances regarding effects on emissions and thermal efficiency

  • Energiekonzept Wiener Neustadt Phase 1

    Advice and technical support of the project klimaaktiv missionzero Wr. Neustadt. Report on the missionzero-relevant data in Wr. Neustadt.

  • Bio(FLEX)Net

    Due to the benefit of being storable, the production of biogas allows the equalisation of fluctuating energy production from renewable energy sources as wind energy or solar energy. The present project aims to develop adaption measures within a retrofit in order to change the plant operation with the target of offering flexible energy on demand.

  • RealLifeBiomass

    The active involvement of end users in further awareness raising is the key element of WP3. Interested house owners (n=100) are actively involved in measures and methods for the sustainable improvement of air quality and for optimizing the operation of their own heating system. A citizen science approach is chosen (end users collect data on their heating behavior themselves and then forward it to the project consortium), leading to increased end-user awareness.
