The Horizon 2020 funded project multEE (Facilitating Multi-level governance for energy efficiency) aims to improve the consistency and quality of energy efficiency policy planning and implementation through innovative monitoring and verification schemes as well as through improved coordination between different administrative levels.
In order to reach this goal, two sub-goals will have to be achieved:

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.

The 7th International Building Physics Conference (IBPC 2018): “Healthy, Intelligent, and Resilient Buildings and Urban Environments”, aims to advance the collective understanding of the nature and behaviour of the cyber-physical systems in these different scales, how they interact, and what can be done to optimise their design and operation for healthy, intelligent and resilient buildings and urban environments.
Contributions are invited, but not limited to, the following topics:
Building Materials, Assemblies, and Enclosure Systems

The better energy-efficient building components of today have one major flaw: The loss of efficiency through improper usage during the building process can be dramatic.
The EU-funded ACCEPT project (Assistant for Quality Check during Construction Execution Processes for Energy-efficienT buildings), will ensure the proper usage of the components during the building process with the help of Smart Glasses.

The 4th edition of the OPERE newsletter focuses on the analysis of data from the system of management, as well as the actions of system optimisation.
The newsletter also reflects the activities developed by the researchers for the elaboration of prediction models of thermal dynamics in buildings based on artificial intelligence techniques.

The scientific accompanying research team "EnergieWendeBauen" of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has published a new combined monitoring guideline for the field energy in buildings and city quarters, specifically for the research initiatives EnOB and EnEff:Stadt. The monitoring guideline contains besides minimum requirements for measurements in demonstration buildings and quarters within EnOB and EnEff:Stadt also information on support tools, that facilitate the administration and analysis of monitoring data.
