This project aims to provide a dynamic basis for spatial heat planning in Styria, Salzburg and Vienna by creating a "heat atlas". Together, the three federal states, their capitals and a large number of pioneer communities and research partners are working on the shared vision.
The ENTRAIN project aims at improving the capacities of public authorities to develop and implement local strategies and action plans for enhancing the use of endogenous renewable energy sources in small district heating networks.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) provide valuable information to (prospective) building owners, tenants and investors on the energy performance of buildings and potential ways to improve it. However, current practices and tools of energy performance assessment and certification applied across Europe face several challenges and there is still (hidden) potential for improvement.
Through this project, the further development of the heat atlas from the preliminary project should result in an energy atlas that provides a dynamic basis for spatial energy planning in Styria, Salzburg and Vienna.
Based on the results of the exploratory study project REC-Businesspark, a demonstrator for a "renewable energy community business park" is to be developed in Weiz. The focus is on the development of innovative operating and tariff models for a redox flow storage system that is integrated into a renewable energy community.
Clarification of relevant questions for the potential establishment of a real lab in the region of Weizplus, which aims at a 100% supply of the region with renewable energies by 2030. The content-related technological focus of the activities of the future real lab is on all energy-relevant sectors (heating, electricity, cooling) applied to the focal points of energy efficiency and replacement of fossil energy in buildings, in trade and industry as well as mobility.
