Project Report:

Summary: Tyrol Energy Scenario- “Our way to Tyrol 2050”

In accordance with international and national guidelines, the state of Tyrol has set itself the goal of becoming energy self-sufficient by 2050 and of covering the energy required in the state itself through domestic energy sources. The project in question should now - based on the present energy mix scenario - derive a target scenario “Our way to 2050” that is as generally agreed in a stakeholder process in politics and in front of interest groups. Additionally, a scenario to reach the climate goals already in 2040 is developed.

Summary: Energy Storage Tyrol 2050

Future energy systems with a high proportion of renewable energy sources are confronted with only conditionally controllable electricity and heat production from solar (photovoltaic and solar thermal), wind and hydropower, as well as fluctuating electricity and heat demand.

The purpose of the project is to define which energy storage technologies have to be used to which extent in Tyrol in order to implement the target value scenario considering the temporal fluctuations of energy supply and demand until 2050.

Research focus of the Unit of Energy Efficient Building:

  • Preparation and coordination of the framework conditions with a focus on the buildings sector
  • Technological presentation of the current energy demand coverage of the buildings sector
  • Development of energy demand coverage scenarios for the buildings sector for 2050 and 2040
  • Investigation of storage technologies available today
  • Market analysis of storage models and preparation of contracts
  • Accompaniment of interactive model calculations
