MOD4SMART

Improve the energy and operational performance of the buildings applying smart technologies.

Description

MOD4SMART aims to improve the energy and operational performance of the buildings applying smart technologies, focusing on industrialised construction as key future element in this context, and carrying out research and development on simplified models to be integrated in the building smart systems. Such models will enable the response of the building smart systems to the energy flows, maximizing the energy efficiency and the sustainability.

 

Objectives

  • Creation of a virtual co-simulation environment that allows the analysis of different factors of the building behaviour.
  • Develop simplified models that allow the energy management of buildings and the integration of renewable systems as part of the building. 
  • Develop modular solutions to new and renovated buildings and analysis of their sustainability.
  • Demonstrate the improved performance of the building in terms of cost and efficiency and evaluation of the improvement of the Intelligence Indicator SRI for buildings. 

Actions

  • Definition and development of theoretical and experimental simplified models and creation of a virtual co-simulation environment.
  • Design characteristics determination of the industrialized construction solutions. 
  • Renewable Systems Integration in building typologies and development of Smart Cities scenarios. 
  • Sustainability assessment and Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) calculation of the proposed optimal scenario. 
  • Experimental environment construction for the generation of data, optimization and models validation. 

Expected Results

  • Virtual co-simulation and experimental environments for the models validation and evaluation. 
  • Simplified model through theoretical research and experimental analysis on modular test laboratories to be used in buildings systems. 
  • Energy efficiency and buildings sustainability improvements through industrialized solutions, renewables energy integration and energy operation.
