ZEAFOLU

Im Projekt ZEAFOLU (null Emissionen aus Land- und Forstwirtschaft und
anderen Formen der Landnutzung in der OÖ Eisenwurzen und darüber hinaus) sollen auf Basis eines biophysischen Biomasseflussmodels und gemeinsam mit Stakeholdern potentielle Handlungsoptionen aufgezeigt werden, die in einer Null-Emissionsstrategie umsetzbar sind. Unterschiedliche Optionen der Landnutzung (Flächenbedarf, Landnutzungsintensität, Technologie, Ernährungsweise und Biomassenachfrage) werden unter Berücksichtigung von Effekten auf Biodiversität, Volkswirtschaft und Wohlbefinden systematisch analysiert. Solche Analysen sind durch komplexe Handelsverflechtungen und die räumlichen Entkopplung von Produktion und Nachfragen komplex und schwierig, insbesondere wenn es darum geht konkrete Schlussfolgerungen auf kleinräumlicher Ebene zu treffen. Aus diesem Grund verfolgt ZEAFOLU ein vereinfachtes Design, welches vier räumliche Ebenen einer Null-Emissionsstrategie der Landnutzung systematisch verbindet: (a) die ländliche Region Eisenwurzen, (b) die nationale Ebene Österreich, regional unterteilt; (c) die Ebene der 28-EU-Mitgliedstaaten und (d) die globale Ebene, untergliedert in elf Weltregionen. Die letzten beiden Ebenen dienen im Besonderen der Analyse der Bedeutung von internationalen Handelsströmen für die Erreichung des Null-Netto-Emissionszieles auf regionaler Ebene und für gesamt Österreich.

Concrete energy system transformation

Concrete energy system transformation – regionally integrated with resource / energy and value added potential

The main objective of the project is to be able to easily survey regional renewable resources, to illustrate them clearly, to optimise their use and to show the (regional) economic and ecological value added.

We create a digital toolbox for the development of integrated energy concepts for local and regional managers and planners with

  • A strong energy map software for the localization of measures, e.g. power plants etc. (including the calculation of land requirements and potential energy yields),
  • <

  • the coupled optimized energy conversion calculator REsys for comparison of demand and application over time and the process network synthesis PNS for the (not only economic) optimization of a technology network,
  • integrated energy demand data,
  • a standardised communication and process design for the economic implementation of projects involving stakeholders in energy system transformation processes
  • new functions for strong local climate models as well as for
  • with functions for the determination of costs and benefits and an assessment of the value added of energy system transformation measures from a (regional) economic perspective.

The Consortium:
akaryon – coordinates the project, collaborates on the mathematical models, is responsible for common data structures and develops some of the tools for the toolbox, based on the tool REsys, which was conceived and launched in recent years together with Dr. Günter Wind and Dr. Horst Lunzer, both of whom are also involved in the project.
Strateco OG – introduces the optimization tool PNS and leads the work with the users.
IBBD – will contribute climate models and data.
STUDIA – will provide cost, benefit and value added analyses.
TU Vienna and BOKU Vienna – will contribute data and modelling on the energy supply and demand side as well as know-how in the field of communication and process design.

The project is supported by the FFG in the COIN conveyor rail.

There is the possibility for municipalities, regions, planners, consultants within the framework of this project to participate in workshops, to try out the toolbox or to go through an energy concept development process with it.
If you are interested please contact Petra Busswald from akaryon: busswald@akaryon.com.

Project title:
Low emission commuting with smart micro public transport services (EBIM-ÖV)

Project partner:
FH OÖ Forschungs und Entwicklungs GmbH, Research Group: Networks and Mobility

Project aim:
The basic aim of this project is to establish a scientific and technical basis für a broadly accepted micro public transport service for solving the first and last mile problem. As a result, we expect a reduction of individual traffic in the respective rural areas, particularly along the highly frequented commuter roads, and a reduction in CO2 emissions concomittant therewith.

Project procedure:
A detailed description of the project can be found here at FH OÖ.

Project period:
01/2019 – 12/2020

Contact:
Stefan Kirchweger

The project is funded through the structural programm „Investitionen in Wachstum und Beschäftigung Österreich 2014-2020″, with funds from the European ERDF(European Regional Development Fund) and the Austrian state Upper Austria.

LTSER – local coordination

LTSER stands for Long-Term socio-ecological research. STUDIA is the node for LTSER communication in Upper Austria.

Gebirge

Local actors should become aware of the opportunities related to the platform, e.g. as a source of information, innovation and knowledge, as a clearing node for research questions, and partner for research and educational co-operative projects.
