In order to meet the high aspirations of the Smart City Wien objectives, a new ambitious framework has to be established in the area of new building construction. Energetic standards, particularly in regards to city areas and quarters in connection with new energy supply systems, have to be newly defined in this context and the thematic areas buildings, energy and energy systems have to be collaboratively worked out. New buildings are already planned and built in accordance with very high energy efficiency standards (low-energy standards or its derivative). In this process, energy and heating systems are considered as well.

Objectives in the area Buildings:

  • Cost-optimised zero-energy building standards for all new structures, additions and refurbishments from 2018/2020 and further development of heat supply systems towards even better climate protection levels.
  • Comprehensive rehabilitation activities entail the reduction of energy consumption of existing buildings for space heating/cooling/water heating by 1% per capita and year.
