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.

TowArds Building rEady for Demand rEsponse
To fully realize the European Demand Response potential, buildings must enter Demand Response schemes and expose all available flexibilities, including HVAC and thermal inertia, to the aggregator. However, several existing limitations need to be overcome:

Service Platform to Host and SharE REsidential data
SPHERE’s ultimate goal is the improvement and optimisation of buildings’ energy design, construction, performance, and management, reducing construction costs and their environmental impact while increasing overall energy performance.
Post date: 17 Dec 2019
With the increasing amount of data to monitor buildings, it becomes crucial to offer tools that help managers in taking the best decisions to better control the energy of their buildings, and to involve all actors in reducing their environmental impact.

WEBINAR - BIM for manufacturers: alternative ways to promote products in BIM
As a manufacturer, you probably ask yourself questions, how to attract designers' attention, how to increase their interest and thus the use of your products in many projects, and how to increase sales, or positively influence marketing activities.

The purpose of the H2020 ExcEED project builds on the statement that there is a lack of structured and comprehensive set of building data, which can be used to elaborate useful information and knowledge for market players and policy makers. Moreover, most buildings show lower energy performance than originally planned, because of their design and/or their use.

Having comparable performance data coming from buildings that could be converted into information and useful knowledge would largely benefit key stakeholders of the building sector (building managers, designers and policy makers). The generated knowledge would improve existing and next generation buildings, thanks to the improved control, design and energy performance regulations generated.

In the 4RinEU project, technologies constitute one of the three pillars of the project. In particular, the Sensible Building Data Handler constitutes a technology aimed at gathering, organising and preparing for analysis the large amount of data that is needed in the various phases of a deep renovation project. A major part of the Sensible Building Data Handler is the collection of monitored data, both for the pre-renovation state of the building and the post-renovation performance.
