OPERE analyzes the design of energy monitoring system in the University of Santiago de Compostela
The Life – OPERE project met this week with a panel of experts to optimize the work carried out in the design and development network of the sensors and the monitoring system of the buildings of the Campus Vida, thus creating a digital environment suitable for efficient energy management.
The optimization of the smart grid and the monitoring system will increase the level of reliability and quality of the electrical supply, reduce the consumption and improve the functioning of the global system (active management of the demand), contribute to greater energy efficiency and reduce emissions of CO2. Thus, OPERE fulfills the Europe 2020 energy strategy which seeks to reduce the greenhouse-gas emissions by 20%, to improve energy efficiency by 20% and to increase the use of renewable energy by 20%.
OPERE project sets out efficient management systems in energy networks, both thermal and electrical, in existing installations with large energy consumption. The goal is to achieve a 30% reduction in energy consumption associated with thermal generation and a reduction of 35% in CO2 emissions, as well as achieve a 35% financial savings. The outcome from the project will be a system for the management of the energy networks modular that will be easily replicable in other centers of the USC.
The meeting was attended by the heads of the department of the areas of infrastructure and ICT of the USC, the management of buildings of big consumption of the Complejo Hospitaliario Universitario of Santiago de Compostela and the Hospital Lucus Augusti, and the company CLECE.
