The FP7 funded TRIBUTE (Take the energy bill back to the promised building performance) is a large-scale integrating project aimed at minimizing the gap between computed and measured energy performances through the improvement of the predictive capability of a state-of-the-art commercial Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS). For existing buildings, measurement and verification techniques will be developed and deployed to connect the BEPS model in real time to the pivotal wireless sensing and control systems of a monitored building.
