Projects in Subject Area Energy
AnergieUrban – Leuchttürme
The implementation of the energy and heat transition in existing urban areas requires innovative solutions. Based on real construction projects, the legal, organisational, and socio-economic framework conditions that need to be created to facilitate the best possible use of geothermal energy in the form of decentralised anergy networks in urban areas are examined.
Support for the development of a national R&D roadmap for geothermal energy in Austria (GeoMap)
With the participation of representatives from research, business and society, a national geothermal R&D roadmap is to be aligned with the current challenges and objectives for the future of energy. In a multi-stage, participatory process, the status quo, current trends and drivers are identified and the necessary research topics and priorities in the field of geothermal energy are addressed.
IEA Equality in Energy Transitions Initiative
The Equality in Energy Transitions Initiative (formerly known as Clean Energy, Education and Empowerment - C3E International) is a Technology Collaboration Programme of the IEA. The Equality Initiative aims to accelerate gender equality and diversity in clean energy transitions and close the gender gap by 2030. This goal will be accomplished through creating a framework for co-operation and information sharing among member countries, as well as exchanging best practices for effective strategies to advance gender equality and diversity in the clean energy field.
ÖGUT in the IEA experts group "R&D priority setting and evaluation" (EGRD)
The IEA expert group F&E priority settings and evaluation (EGRD) was initiated by the commitee for energy research and technology (CERT) with the goal of developing and spreading analytical approaches for the energy-technology-analysis, the F&E priority setting and the assessment of the use of FTI policies.
EU-Calculator: Trade-offs und Entwicklungspfade der Dekarbonisierung des Energiesystems
The EUCalc project delivers 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.
Event series „Highlights of Energy Research“
The event series “Highlights of Energy Research“ has been initiated by the BMVIT aiming to create a common platform for experts and stakeholders involved in relevant research areas.
