"PVadapt", 2018 - 2021
Research project to demonstrate significant cost reduction for building integrated PV (BIPV) solutions. Horizon 20120 Framework Programme abstract: The building integrated photovoltaics sector can benefit from innovations in construction and solar energy alike, even moreso when the two are in sync. In the PVadapt project, combined innovations in modular construction and modular photovoltaics will lead to the creation of an adaptable and multifunctional BIPV system of substantially lower cost than conventional solutions. A flexible and low cost production of photovoltaics in automated processes will be employed to produce PV modules as well as elements with integrated heat pipe based heat recovery. These active energy components will be combined with passive and sustainable components with structural, mechanical, thermal and other functions to produce prefabricated BIPV modules. Prefabrication will be the key to achieving cost reductions, as well as guaranteeing quick installation with low disruption. The project will also employ a sustainable by design philosophy with all the parts of the system being recyclable/ reusable and waste based raw material supply chains will be established. A Smart Envelope System featuring grid connectivity, load prediction and shifting and intelligent energy management systems with predictive algorithms will be integrated in the PVadapt turn key BIPV system. To convincingly demonstrate the PVadapt solutions, 7 buildings of various typologies (residential, commercial, 2 offices, and 3 service stations in Spain, Greece and Austria) will have the technology installed and one new 288m2 floor space construction will be built in Portugal with a total of 464kW installed. The LCOE values will be below 2ct/kWh and the cost of the BIPV module will be below 200 euros per m2 and payback below 10 years. In these sites, the PVadapt technologies will be installed in flat and pitched roofs, as wall replacements and facades and shaders, demonstrating the holistic approach to BIPVs, improving their entire life cycle.
„houseful“, 2017 - 2020
The HOUSEFUL project targets the uptake of circular buildings in the housing sector. Innovative circular solutions and services for the housing sector. At EU level, the housing sector is responsible for 9% of GDP, but it also uses 50% of the extracted materials, 40% and 30% of available energy and water respectively, aside from causing 30% of total waste. No doubt that actions like HOUSEFUL are needed. How? By designing innovative solutions for efficient management of materials, waste, water and energy along the entire housing value chain. The solutions will be demonstrated in four different buildings located in Vienna and nearby Barcelona. Moreover, ten European buildings will be identified throughout the project for replication of HOUSEFUL’s approach. HOUSEFUL is an initiative funded by the European Commission. It started in May 2018 and will last four and half years. It is run by a consortium of sixteen partners covering a wide range of expertise. The project is coordinated by LEITAT Technological Center in Terrassa (Spain). Within this consortium "Architekturbüro Reinberg ZTGmbH" will focus his work on a housing renovation project in Vienna.
"COOLSKIN - Self-contained cooling via building envelopes", 2016 - 2018
Research subject of Coolskin are decentralized systems for cooling of interiors. The incident on the facade surface solar radiation is converted directly or deferred in cooling energy and delivered to the room behind. The energy supply is selfsufficient in itself and needs no energy from external sources. In the study, numerical analysis, experimental investigations in the laboratory to reality took laboratory setups and field tests are conducted under realistic conditions; together with the Institute of Thermal Engineering - Graz University of Technology, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH (AIT Energy) Hans Höllwart - Research Center for Integral Construction AG, qpunkt GMBH, funded by the Austrian Forschungsförderungsges.mbH (FFG), 2015-18
