EU-Calculator: Trade-offs und Entwicklungspfade der Dekarbonisierung des Energiesystems
The EUCalc project will deliver a comprehensive framework for research, business, and public sector decision makers which identifies and enables an appraisal of synergies and trade-offs of feasible European decarbonisation pathways. The novel and pragmatic modelling approach adopted is rooted between pure complex energy system and emissions models and integrated impact assessment tools.
Testing the evaluation instrument for innovation-driving public procurement
The IOEB-Tool is used for the professional design, implementation and evaluation of innovations for public procurement, via a jury-process. The simulation of such a process is a focus of this project and should deliver important insight into the practical and goal-oriented application of the developed tool and subsequently lead to further development of the tool.
Comparison of climate-relevant funding
The transparent comparison of various funding opportunities is essential to improve the impact and efficiency of Austrian national funding mechanisms. Therefore the OEGUT has developed a study which compares various routes to climate-relevant funding.
Substantive support in the strategy process „Dialog Energiezukunft 2050“ („Future Energy Dialogue 2050“)
In cooperation with representatives from research, the economy and society, future energy research objectives should be oriented around current challenges and targets for the future of energy.
Sustainable Energy Financing Platform in Austria (SEFIPA)
The Sustainable Energy Financing Platform in Austria (SEFIPA) is designed as an action oriented platform to collect, develop, implement and disseminate innovative ideas to accelerate finance for sustainable energy. In contrast to the prevailing approach in Austria of subsidy based support of sustainable energy activities, SEFIPA will focus on increasing private sources of funds.
Potential analysis of „2000 Watt Areal“ certification: Pilot Exercise and Quality Assurance
This pilot project involving three innovative new-building sites using the Swiss system known as “2000 Watt Areal Certification” will deliver insight into the status quo for reaching the climate goals of urban and rural districts in Austria.
Within the framework of the project “Zertifizierung von Siedlungen / Quartieren” (engl. Site certificate) the possibility of transferring the Swiss “2000-Watt Site” certificate to Austria was assessed by stakeholders from Austria and Switzerland: in how far can the existing Swiss system “2000-Watt Site” certificate (for newly build areas) as well as ongoing and planned propositions to expand the system to city planning processes and existing areas provide a basis for Austria?
Smart Meters at School
In this project, ÖGUT will produce videos explaining all aspects of this technology, positive and negative sides as well. Furthermore, we will hold workshops in three schools in Vienna, in which the pupils will have the change to get in though with actual Smart Meters and related aspects of energy provision, and energy demand and the role that Smart Meters can play in Smart Grids of tomorrow.
Joint Working Group Energy Efficiency And Renewable Energy
It is generally agreed upon that there is substantial economic potential for improving energy efficiency in all sectors of energy consumption. This is especially pertinent in the building sector that covers 40% of the energy consumption in Austria.
Envietech2015 & the national prize for environment and energy technology 2015
The national prize for energy and environmental technology was awarded by Reinhold Mitterlehner (Vice-Chancellor and Minister for Economic Affairs), Andrä Rupprechter (Environment Minister) and Alois Stöger (Technology Minister) for the fourth time in 2015.This prize gave organisations, communities, universities and non-academic research institutions and other actors or societies the opportunity to put forward innovative projects, products, processes and services in the area of environment and energy technology.
