2050 energy concept for a mixed-use area

Development of an innovative energy concept for a new, site-independent and medium-sized area in Switzerland with different types of use. Global warming affects everyone. A global warming of at least 2 degrees Celsius is to be expected. This is likely to bring additional changes in humidity and more extreme weather conditions. This poses new challenges for the [...]

Energy Alternatives for an Asphalt Production Site

Reducing the CO2 emissions and optimizing the energy consumption in asphalt production. Alternative Energies will help to reduce the CO2 footprint of an asphalt production site. Asphalt production nowadays is mainly driven by the usage of fossil high-density fuels. Asphalt production companies are seeking for alternative solutions to make the production of asphalt much more [...]

Automation of threshold values

Deep learning algorithms to define best threshold values are key components in this project. Threshold values play an important role in the optimisation of running HVAC-systems and their surveillance concerning unexpected operating modes. MST as energy management provider and HSLU - T&A in cooperation with Empa will be working on deep learning algorithms to get automatised values based on historical data. [...]

Renewable Energy on Neighborhood Level

Integration of renewable energy on neighborhood level is a key point in reaching the goals of the Swiss energy strategy 2050. If the commitment of the goals of ES 2050 shall be fulfilled, the integration of renewable energy-especially for space heating and domestic hot water production-comprise one central key point. SFOE has lately started its own initiative on the topic. An [...]

Efficiency Improvement Program for Domestic Appliances

Boosting Energy Transformation 2050 by accelerated removal & replacement of inefficient domestic refrigeration It's (global) time to act! The energy transformation (Swiss: 2050) is under huge time pressure, in the housing sector the implementation speed is not fast enough! The housing sector has a big impact on the national energy & carbon base line. White [...]

Connectivity in the building (KiG)

The project "Connectivity in Buildings" has set itself the goal of increasing energy efficiency by improving the interaction between the individual trades, disciplines and technologies through digitalization. Buildings are an immensely important area when it comes to achieving climate targets and using energy efficiently. Digitization offers an important tool for this and can improve the well-being [...]

Gjosa Shower Head

The Gjosa Shower Head is designed to minimize the high warm water, energy and resource consumption. Professional hair care in salons requires large amounts of warm water, energy and resources. Gjosa is developing a new type of shower head, which has a significantly reduced water consumption and allows the direct infusion of additives into the [...]

Smart Energy Home

Opportunities for smart buildings through the new energy law Every building is part of the energy ecosystem. Self-production and consumption play an essential role in the planning and use of buildings. The new legislation brings new opportunities but also challenges for the members of the Innovation Park, which are being elaborated in an interdisciplinary way within a Smart Energy Homes working group. With the [...]
