smart energy essentially comprises

  • data driven energy supply/usage
    • coupling sectors
    • allowing negotiated transactions between market participants
    • using predictive control
  • optimising thermodynamics, increasing efficiency by adapting
    • thermodynamic processes
    • temperature levels
  • increasing usage of renewable energy and waste heat through improved planning quality for energy systems
    • introducing modelling at the planning phase using real world data
    • exploiting virtual storage
    • adapting demand

EPC4SES

Digital Building Twins

Data acquired as input data for calculating energy performance of buildings in the mandatory Energy Performance Certificate EPC-schemes according to 2010/31/EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is a valuable source - both for model-based and sector spanning planning of future SES and for model predictive grid/network control on a local/regional level. EPC4SES is a project taking the diverging landscape of EPC in Europe, adding utility to EPC and thus introducing a new way for convergence and improvement of EPC quality. The project will co-develop applications with stakeholders, whilst securing privacy by design pairing building data. The best-ranked model-based prediction applications will be implemented as research prototypes using real data from the three pilot regions Andalucía, Berlin and Salzburg/Vienna, to quantify impacts and effort when erecting virtual (digital) twins of building pairs or quarters. All results and new ideas for supporting decarbonisation via virtual storage and interoperable smart energy systems will be fed back into the ERANET scientific community.
