The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. The project partners have developed a controller based on self-learning algorithms, which is currently experimented in the two STORM demo sites.   The developed controller will enable to maximise the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.   The STORM project is funded by the European Union’s H2020 Programme.

Lessons from the Field, Vision to the Future   Intelligent efficiency holds the promise of substantially reducing energy use while transforming many energy-using markets. Achieving this outcome requires collaboration among the efficiency, technology, and user communities. These communities are largely distinct, and few opportunities have existed to date for the energy efficiency and technology communities to interact. Past interactions have been limited to speakers from one community addressing assemblies of the other.

On June 24, IBM’s Watson Internet of Things hosted at leaders, industry experts and technologists at The Crystal in London to examine how IoT is shaping the way we design, construct, use, maintain and experience the buildings around us. One of the main focuses was the application of cognitive computing to smart buildings.   Nowadays building systems can provide an enormous amount of unstructured data on building operations. The challenge is using available information to improve and adapt building performances.
