Simulation based control for Energy Efficiency building operation and maintenance
FP7-2013-NMP-ENV-EeB Programme / Project
Energy IN TIME project goes beyond existing building control techniques, mainly demand-response based, developing an integrated control & operation approach that will combine the state of the art modelling techniques and simulation software; and new control techniques to obtain automatic generation of optimal operational plans for buildings tailored to the actual requirements. This approach will allow reducing system inefficiencies and therefore contributing to significantly improve building energy efficiency and comfort.
The target for Energy IN TIME solution will be existing non-residential buildings, which present the building typologies that guaranties higher impact and room for improvement due to the variety and quantity of facilities and equipment covered and the operational management model used in them. A control tool will be implemented in the building energy management systems to be automatically and remotely operated. The methodology for the enhancing solution implementation will be defined for existing buildings and for its implementation in new buildings since its initial commissioning.
