CHRONICLE aims to deliver a set of digital tools to support sustainable design, construction, and renovation, as well as investment decision-making for buildings, taking a life-cycle approach to building performance assessment. The aim is to improve the performance of buildings towards energy efficiency, comfort, and improved well-being of residents.
The project takes a human-centric approach to the digitalization of buildings whereby end-users, residents, and professionals working in the building sector alike, are at the center of the development of the tools and services.
CHRONICLE’s building performance assessment framework and toolset will be demonstrated and validated in five pilot sites spanning the geographic diversity of Europe, namely in Spain, Ireland, Denmark, Greece, and Switzerland.
COLLECTiEF is a 4-year project funded by the European Union. It aims to implement an interoperable and scalable energy management system to smart up buildings and their legacy equipment on a large scale. Enhancing the energy flexibility on both supply and demand sides can boost the movement towards sustainable and resilient urban energy solutions, especially in high-energy dense and heterogeneous urban areas. The project responds to this urgent need to review existing buildings’ energy strategy.
What makes them unique is the development of software and hardware packages for a Collective Intelligence-based demand-side management (CI-DSM) that increases data security, energy flexibility, and climate resilience of existing buildings while reducing installation cost, data transfer, and computational power.
Their work contributes to the energy and climate goals set by the Paris Agreement and the "Clean Energy for All European" package, including the Communication "Accelerating Clean Energy Innovation" (COM (2016) 736) and the SET-Plan priorities.
DigiBUILD aligns with the European Strategy for data, contributing significantly to the establishment of an Energy Efficient Building Data Space. The project adopts co-creation methodologies in line with the European Bauhaus initiative to foster collaborative and innovative approaches.
By employing these methodologies, the initiative aims to gather and manage data in a manner that prioritizes relevance and adaptability, avoiding unnecessary mobilization of extensive datasets. This approach ensures a more focused utilization of essential data, enabling more robust, improved, and consistent monitoring of building stock energy performance.
