Simulation based control for Energy Efficiency building operation and maintenance. Energy INTIME Project
The Energy IN TIME project, Simulation based control for Energy Efficiency building operation and maintenance, is funded by the EU 7th Framework program. The project started last October and has an estimated duration of four years. The Energy IN TIME Consortium, led by ACCIONA, is composed of thirteen enterprises from different nature and nationality.
With the global goal on improving the Energy Efficiency, the Energy IN TIME project will develop a smart energy control method in the building energy management systems based on simulation tools, allowing the energy consumption reduction during the operation stage in existing non-residential buildings.
The Energy IN TIME tool will permit the automatic generation of optimal operational plans for the HVAC systems in the buildings being adjusted to the particular building characteristics and needs. The tool will be able to be operated in a remote and automatic way.
In order to materialize this approach, Energy IN TIME will combine different techniques:
The Project will be validated on four existing buildings: an Airport, two different office buildings and in a Hotel. The demo-sites are located in different geographical European zones with different building use. By doing so it will be allowed to evaluate the scope and the tool adaptation to diverse scenarios
October 2013 to October de 2017.
