Webinar “Heat grids in transition” successfully held

Achieving medium- and long-term climate targets is a major challenge in which flexible and sustainable grid-connected heat systems will be a key element. Thus, to increase the share of renewable heat generation, sustainable heat sources – if possible of local/regional origin – need to be integrated and new technical concepts for them need to be […] more

ThermaFLEX as a focus in the magazine nachhaltigen Technologie 2|2022

Not only the effects of climate change, but also the current geopolitical and energy policy developments raise the awareness that the phase-out of the fossil dependencies with regard to our energy consumption is essential. The heating sector, with around 65 percent fossil supply, is heavily affected and faces enormous challenges in terms of the necessary […] more

Gleisdorf concept for sector coupling in the ORF

There have already been several reports about our sector coupling concept of district heating with the sewage treatment plant in the city of Gleisdorf. The Styrian ORF is also reporting on it under the current focus “Mother Earth”. The concept was developed as part of the large-scale research association #ThermaFLEX led by AEE INTEC under the […] more

Virtual Tour of flagship project ThermaFLEX

The heat transition and decarbonization at the sites of our ThermaFLEX demonstrators are progressing rapidly. In addition to the technical development and integration of the corresponding flexibility elements and solutions, the project also emphasis on transparent communication with customers, end-users and the public. This was particularly important to establish long-term sustainable cooperation and understanding, which […] more

Workshop in the field “Energy from wastewater”

AEE INTEC, in cooperation with Rabmer Greentech GmbH, held a free workshop on the topic of “Wastewater as an energy source” on 18 May 2022 at the Austrian Chamber of Commerce as part of the ThermaFLEX research project. Under the title “Wastewater and wastewater treatment plants as future renewable energy sources for the decarbonisation of […] more

Vienna thermal water will be used twice in future

After being used internally, the thermal water of Therme Wien now heats a district in Vienna with climate-neutral district heating. The concept for local waste heat utilisation developed in the ThermaFLEX lead project goes into operation. As part of the ThermaFLEX project, AEE INTEC is working with 27 project partners on the question of how […] more
