The Plus IQ project aims to present the possibilities, potential and requirements of agricultural photovoltaic systems. An interdisciplinary study examines the necessary components of technical requirements and PV system design, grid feed-in, effects on plant health, the microclimate, the landscape as a recreational area and the interaction with cultural heritage, as well as details on the legal framework and connection options to digital agriculture . This is intended to lay the foundation for future investigations in which the potential of agricultural photovoltaics for the realization of energy-efficient districts in rural areas is to be analyzed in detail by setting up a demonstration system

Definition and explanation of the evaluation criteria of the microclimate and the thermal comfort of green waiting shelters based on common comfort indices. Evaluation based on the criteria defined within the project, using measurements and simulations. The following four types are customized: (1) MA42 plant troughs (“wild wine” / Parthenocissus sp.), (2) Sedum mat, (3) prototype (vertical and roof greening) and (4) without greening. Consideration of the position in the street space as well as shading effects of trees and buildings.

Imp_Drop evaluates the first time the influence and interactions of vegetation dynamics on urban cooling under climate change induced drought effects in the Greater Vienna region. Focus will be on combining effects of a) seasonal optimization of evaporative cooling in the Vienna surrounding agricul-tural regions and of green infrastructure (green roofs) within urban Vienna and b) urban technical measures such as local photovoltaic system effects, increasing albedo and anthropogenic heat reduc-tion.
