Prototype for predictive, autonomous and innovative energy management for buildings
The goal of the project is the development of a demonstrator for testing the viability of new energy-management systems in a building developed in the smart living lab. The physical infrastructure consists in a detached office unit, fully equipped with a heat pump, solar thermal and photovoltaic panels, thermal and electrochemical storage. The testing of new energy management procedures developed in the frame of the smart living lab would then be possible in real conditions.
