DigiBUILD held its 5th regular meeting on 21 and 22 September at the facilities of the CARTIF technology centre. The aim of this session was to collect the data obtained from the different pilot buildings to jointly generate the Data Lake with which the aim is to combine dynamic and static data to improve aspects of energy efficiency.
The integration of this diverse data will allow the implementation of different services in the future thanks to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Twins algorithms. Their combination has now reached an optimal level of maturity which, during the meeting, has allowed the holding of different workshops in which these technologies have been discussed.
The main mission of DigiBUILD is to provide an open and interoperable toolbox to transform traditional building parks into digital and smarter ones, based on real and reliable data collection. The aim of this proposal is to turn around the current state of the market by providing high quality data-driven services to move towards a digital and sustainable environment.
The CARTIF team, as one of the partner entities, is in charge of defining and implementing a methodology for the analysis of data quality in its multiple dimensions; defining and implementing a data imputation procedure based on machine learning to minimise the loss of information; in the design and deployment of a federated Data Lake for the management of Big-Data in intelligent buildings with the application of Business Intelligence; and the design and development of intelligent services for the prediction of energy generation and demand, and a Digital Twin for a heat network connected to a set of buildings.
