Publishable Summary for Use Cases (D1.2) and Process Models (D2.1) ready for download

D1.2 collects key results from two iterations on use case identification and D2.1 collects key results from both iterations of process model specification for energy efficiency in public buildings performed at all pilot sites of the SMARTSPACES project consortium.

SMARTSPACES at 11th Annual Conference for Automatic Monitoring and Targeting

On 28 February 2013, the SMARTSPACES project partners from Leicester City Council will present the SMARTSPACES project at the 11th Annual Conference and Exhibition for automatic Monitoring and Targeting in Coventry, United Kingdom. Within the theme "Improving your energy strategy to maximise demand reduction in your business" the current status, opportunities, case studies and energy savings of smart meters will be presented by several speakers.

Publishable Summary for Data Protection ready for download

The publishable summary provides an overview of the Data Protection framework to be used in SMARTSPACES. Further, a summary of applicable Data Protection legislation in the pilot countries is also provided. Given the significance of Data Protection in SMARTSPACES, makes it a key issues which needs to be dealt with in all pilot sites. Therefore, a close follow up of data protection requirements in each pilot site will be carried out and potential issues arising discussed in consortium meetings.

eeMeasure Web-Portal is now publicly available for free use

The methodology for energy-efficiency measurements applicable to ICT in buildings (eeMeasure) enables ICT PSP projects to calculate and record energy saving results using a consistent approach. In turn, this enables the European Commission and other interested parties to produce a better quantitative analysis of the energy savings potential of ICT based solutions in residential and non-residential buildings. The calculations are based on baseline recordings of consumption and data recorded after the intervention and introduction of energy efficiency services in dwellings or buildings. Various driving factors such as degree days and other correcting parameters can be applied to the model.

Additional information

The SMARTSPACES project enables public authorities in Europe significantly to improve their management of energy in the buildings they occupy. The SMARTSPACES energy optimisation service exploits the potential of ICT including smart metering for significant energy saving in public buildings. The implementation of operational services includes 11 pilot sites with more than 550 buildings in 8 countries with almost 20,000 professionals and staff users and reaching more than 6,000,000 visitors annually. The project is co-funded by the European Commission within the CIP ICT Policy Support Programme.
