The Smart UrbaNServIces for Higher eNergy Efficiency (SUNSHINE) project delivers innovative digital services, interoperable with existing geographic web-service infrastructures, supporting improved energy efficiency at the urban and building level. Specifically, SUNSHINE delivers a smart service platform accessible from both a web-based client and an App for smartphones and tablets.
SUNSHINE aims at energy and emission savings, ranging -within the various pilots- from 10% to 30%, with higher savings being foreseen for pilots relying on older buildings, or equipped with older heating, cooling or lighting technologies.
Specifically, the project's targets are the following:
- Energy assessment of buildings at urban scale for the creation of “ecomaps” and their energy pre-certification.
- Optimisation of energy consumption of heating/cooling systems based on localised weather forecasts and energy modelling of buildings.
- Optimisation of power consumption through remote control of public lighting networks.
The project is supported by the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) of the European Union.
