BayFOR at World Sustainable Energy Days

[Translate to Englisch:] BayFOR World Sustainable Energy Days

Wels/Austria. Energy efficiency, global leadership in renewables and innovative eco-technologies are the main topics of this year's "World Sustainable Energy Days" taking place from 4 - 6 March in Austria. This event attracts more than 600 key players from over 50 countries each year. The Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR) is a partner organisation in the EU-project „INNOVIP“, which deals with energy efficiency in the building sector. BayFOR will give a deep insight into the thematic of INNOVIP and its service portfolio at the poster presentation.

Since 1992, the Upper Austrian region welcomes every year experts and decision makers in the field of energy efficiency. In the past few years the clean energy transition is taking on a new dynamic in Europe and worldwide. "Energy efficiency first" and "global leadership in renewables" are at the centre of this transformation process. This requires strong policies, competitive businesses, technology innovation, investments and the involvement of the citizens. By addressing these topics and more, the annual event "World Sustainable Energy Days" attracts over 600 guests from all over the world.

Five dedicated conferences at a glance:

•    Energy Efficiency Policy Conference
•    Industrial Energy Efficiency Conference
•    Smart E-Mobility Conference
•    Green Financing Workshop
•    Young Energy Efficiency Researchers Conference

The European project INNOVIP - Innovative multi-funtional Vacuum-Insulation-Panels (VIPs) for use in the building sector

The EU project INNOVIP will progress VIP technology by addressing these key issues: The international project team led by the Munich-based Forschungsinstitut für Wärmeschutz e. V. will use innovative technologies and develop new materials, as well as improve production processes. Using a new type of protective envelope and alternative fillers – for example perlite – the INNOVIP consortium is aiming to make this highly-efficient solution more competitive. Moreover, the project partners will be working towards a further improvement in the efficiency of the VIPs as well as the development of features such as anti-mould coatings and increased fire resistance.

At the Poster Presentation you will have the opportunity to get a deeper insight into the projects approach.
