Implementation of urban future quarters with actor networking and legal-economic replicable solutions (ZQ3-Demo-IVET)
Funded by
Austrian Research Promotion Agency, Sensengasse 1, 1090 Wien, Austria
The project ZQ3Demo aims at developing and supporting three innovative new building districts towards Plus-Energy, in order to demonstrate sustainable and at the same time economic solutions for the implementation of Plus-Energy districts on real examples.
During the project, the development and implementation of system solutions for the simultaneous optimization of the technical-economic neighbourhood goals (minimisation of CO2, primary energy and costs during construction and operation) will be supported, with the overall goal of increasing the replicability of Plus-Energy-Districts (PED).
In addition, technical and sociological monitoring will be conducted and operation optimised during at least the first year of use. Due to the broad diversity of the demonstration districts in terms of function (living, working, education), degree of implementation (concept, submission, construction) and financing model (freely financed; non-profit; rent and ownership), the project addresses different issues, providing relevant results for a variety of future typologies and thus ensuring a high replication.
