The ‘Guide for Replication‘ presents how Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can be utilised to improve energy efficiency (EE) in non-residential and residential buildings.
The Guide has been developed over 5 years and is based on numerous projects including over 35 pilot sites. The content is continuously being updated and has been featured by several prominent energy associations including EnergyCities and Eurocities.
The reader can follow the Guide following the necessary Phases or from the viewpoint of individual Stakeholders. Setting the Scene explains technical basics and the different concepts in more detail. Phases distinct necessary steps for successful development, implementation and operation.Stakeholders chapters selectively include content relevant for the stakeholder in question. Short pages are provided for specific (but selected) Problems.
Checklists and key lessons learnt are highlighted and introduced in context. This includes the References to specific projects and pilot sites for which detail including live portals and videos are provided. Comprehensive checklists, glossaries, tools for download, etc. are collected also in the Technical Documentation and in the Annex.
SMARTSPACES aims to public authorities in Europe to significantly improve energy management in the buildings they occupy by using ICT
Europe’s building sector represents a huge, largely untapped potential for energy saving. The new SMARTSPACES project will address this by enabling public authorities in Europe to significantly improve energy management in the buildings they occupy.
The project will be implemented in 11 pilot sites with more than 550 buildings in the Green Digital Charter cities of Birmingham, Bristol, Murcia but also in other large and mid-sized cities like Milan, Leicester, Istanbul, Belgrade, Hagen, Lleida, Venlo and Moulins. This will reach almost 20,000 professionals and staff users and more than 6,000,000 visitors annually. SMARTSPACES will provide an energy optimisation service which will exploit the potential of ICT including smart metering for significant energy saving in city administration buildings, office buildings, museums, university buildings but also schools, nurseries and sports and event centres.
The city authorities are expected to benefit directly through reductions in the time they need to manage the heating plants and prepare renovation investment decisions. Indirect benefits will come through the strong improvement of their economic situation through drastic energy consumption and cost reductions resulting from an optimised operation of the heating plants and electricity systems in their buildings.
