Brains for Buildings’ Energy Systems
Buildings need ‘brains’ to be able to respond to user behavior and to enable self-diagnosis and self-optimization. The goal of the current project is to develop scalable and modular solutions that realize 20-30% energy savings. The market value is promising as the impact of these ‘brains’ on energy bills, operating and maintenance costs, and on the ease of use is great. B4B focuses on the development of control and control systems for utility buildings that strive to reduce the energy waste maintenance costs and CO2 emission. Furthermore, the systems focus on an increase of local resources and accessibility of adjustable energy. The systems take the user behavior, comfort, and health into account and ensure the well-being of users. B4B tests and validates open-source prototypes to clarify the market value to companies, building owners, and facility managers.
