Energy Management R&D Projects

Enerit continues to be involved in large European wide energy management Research & Development projects such as the following:

HIT2GAP - Highly Innovative building control Tools Tackling the energy performance gap





Highly Innovative building control Tools Tackling the energy performance gap

The actual energy consumption of buildings in Europe often significantly exceeds the expected energy requirements.This gap in energy performance can arise from construction errors but it can also result from differences between the way a building is actually used and how it was intended to be used. An energy management platform could help to reduce this energy gap.

Achieving energy efficiency targets will be made much easier thanks to a new and innovative energy reporting platform.

To meet this ambitious objective, the HIT2GAP project will deliver:

  1. A generic information platform with protocols for communication with devices and user interfaces
  2. Building energy modelling, to establish energy consumption benchmarks
  3. A variety of tailored modules to inform users, energy managers and engineer.

CASCADE - ICT for Energy Efficient Airport

CASCADE will develop facility-specific measurement-based energy action plan for airport energy managers underpinned by systematic Fault Detection Diagnosis (FDD) Methods.

CASCADE will develop a framework and methodology to underpin the execution of customised ICT solutions building upon existing ICT infrastructure used for energy management. A measurement framework and minimal data set will be established that control and benchmark equipment performance, optimise user behaviour, and match client specifications.

VERYSchool - Valuable Energy for a Smarter School

VERYSchool will integrate smart LED lighting, smart metering, BEMS, energy simulation and energy management software into a platform called the “Energy Action Navigator” and demonstrate it in four Pilot locations scattered in Europe. This integrated platform and environment will be customised and dedicated to schools. It will provide a methodology, approach, and tool for school decision makers, technicians, and ICT professionals alike to collectively address the issue of energy savings in schools. The proposition is because the school building segment is unique in the building domain since it has specific typologies, users and usage patterns, energy infrastructures, energy uses and functions. For schools the decision makers that have the authority to affect energy savings strategies, programs, and management actions, are often far removed from the problem (e.g. there are many layers of hierarchy between someone installing high-efficiency systems and the person that authorises it).
