Controls, energy management systems

CEN-CE is a 2-years long H2020 project started in June 2018 developing an EU-wide common large-scale training and qualification scheme for building professionals. The core of the scheme is the set of CEN EPB Standards related to the Energy Performance of Buildings, mandated (M480) by the European Commission for supporting the implementation of EPBD recast (Directive 2010/31/EU).

New design tool and approaches, and innovative construction methods are enabling architects and engineers to conceive and develop increasingly complex and daring building envelopes. This process is rapidly reshaping our built environment, and transforming the concept of building envelope itself, which is no longer a passive and static element that only separates the indoor environment from the outdoor world.  In this fast changing context, one of the major issues is the evaluation of the performances of such complex façade systems.

The building façade not only provides the aesthetic signature of a building, but also important functions, such as daylight provision, glare protection, solar gain management and visual contact with the outside, which make the building usable and energy efficient. These functions often oppose each other, so the selection and design of façade systems and their control for a certain building application should depend on those functions that the designer wants to promote to the detriment of the other functions.
