The MOVIDA Project (“MOVing from Inspection to Domestic Advice by service companies”) aimed to improve the energy efficiency of HVAC systems in buildings for both the domestic sector and the tertiary sector, by changing the mode of carrying out inspections according to the regulations on energy efficiency in buildings (Directive 2010/31/EU), complementing the tasks of operating and maintaining with a study of energy efficiency. The MOVIDA project tested a new approach of the inspection of heating and air-conditioning systems based on service staff already operating commercially on systems, performing O&M, or environmental controls (chimney sweepers) or energy auditing. On the other side the approach provides an added value to existing services, as advice and recommendations are supplied to the clients. This poster reports what was learnt from inspections of heating and air-conditioning systems operated in Austria.
MOVIDA has been co-funded by the European Union under the Intelligent Energy – Europe programme and ran from May 2011 until November 2013.
