Introduction BIM is a key part of the fourth revolution (digitalisation) of the AEC industry (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) and an enabling tool for a cleaner and more sustainable build environment.   This has been recognised by the European commission, and several H2020 funded projects, including BIMcert, are focusing in providing training frameworks and support in order to upskill the industry.

In general terms, the Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the allocation of unique identifiers (such as IP addresses) to physical objects. Those identifiers enable objects to connect to a network allowing the transfer of data to and from those entities. These objects can potentially be anything: people, animals, vehicles, plants, appliances, building components, etc., and they are often described as smart objects, for example, a smart meter, a smart phone, a smart home, etc.

What makes you think BIM is the way forward for the construction sector to meet carbon emission targets? According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the global buildings sector is now responsible for 36% of global final energy consumption as well as accounting for nearly 40% of total direct and indirect carbon dioxide emissions.

As part of the sustainability planning within BIMcert and with other EU BIM projects we have collaborated to form BIMalliance.  The primary aim of this is to enable BIMcert to develop an exploitation plan in collaboration with other partners. This collaboration also enables all partners in BIMalliance to share materials, modules and learning material.

The objective of the Horizon 2020 RenOnBill project is to scale up investments towards deep energy renovations of residential buildings, by promoting the development and implementation of on-bill schemes, based on the cooperation between energy utilities and financial institutions. On-bill schemes are a method of financing energy renovation investments in buildings that draws on utility bills as repayment vehicle.

The SWS-HEATING project will develop an innovative seasonal thermal energy storage (STES) unit with a novel storage material and creative configuration, i.e. a sorbent material embedded in a compact multi-modular sorption STES unit. This will allow to store and shift the harvested solar energy available abundantly during the summer to the less sunny and colder winter period thus covering a large fraction of heating and domestic hot water demand in buildings.
