Mini-grids are complex systems dependent on different suppliers and used in different applications, often with high regulatory uncertainty over their installation and operation. Creating a viable market for renewable-based mini-grids, with prospects of growth and long-term profitability for investors, depends on establishing trustworthy quality infrastructure (QI) for the technologies and systems involved.

Reducing the heating and cooling sector’s emissions is critical to mitigating against changes in climate and reducing air pollution. In this regard, district heating and cooling systems can assist in scaling up renewable energy use, increasing energy efficiency, decreasing the utilisation of fossil fuels in the heating and cooling sector, and improving urban area air quality.

The former fire station is a listed building, which was built in 1926 by architect Franz Baumgartner in the style of the architecture at the lake Wörther See. It is now used as a music school. The building is characterised by its strongly articulated gates on the main street façade. The large roof area is broken up by an enormous front gable. The building comprises two full floors, an attic, a partial basement and a turret room. The market town of Velden am Wörthersee implemented a comprehensive thermal-energetic renovation of the building.

Preliminary evidence on the effects of a behaviourally informed intervention integrated in an initial subset of 12 apartments seems to highlight the role that household composition plays in ensuring the effectiveness of behaviour-change interventions. The intervention in questions is informed by behavioural economics and involves providing social information to tenants regarding the average energy consumption of their neighbours.
