Modelling Optimization of Energy Efficiency in Buildings for Urban Sustainability

MOEEBIUS introduces a Holistic Energy Performance Optimization Framework that enhances current modelling approaches and delivers innovative simulation tools which deeply grasp and describe real-life building operation complexities in accurate simulation predictions that significantly reduce the “performance gap” and enhance multi-fold, continuous optimization of building energy performance as a means to further mitigate and reduce the identified “performance gap” in real-time or through retrofitting.

 

MOEEBIUS to be promoted during 6th iteration of Sustainable Places

The present, 6th edition of Sustainable Places (SP), annual international conference series on urban planning, will be held between 27th and 29th of June 2018 in Aix-Les-Bains, France. It will be the great opportunity to present and promote MOEEBIUS project amongst thought-leaders and sector influencers from leading organizations around the world.

Members of MOEEBIUS consortium gathered in Bilbao, Spain in Tecnalia (project coordinating Partner) headquarters to submit current achievements of project progress. In 30th month of project' life MOEEBIUS started its most significant phase based on Living Lab experiments carring out on assigned pilot sites: in Serbia, Portugal and England.

The second workshop in Belgrade proved to be undeniable success

Our Serbian project partner, Beogradske Elektrane, organized the second Living Lab workshop aimed at training and improving skills of local inhabitants in the area of optimizing and reducing energy consumption. The workshop took place on 12th and 13th March 2018 at Serbian pilot site, Stepan Stepanovic neighbourhood. 43 building occupants got an opportunity to better recognize opportunities provided by MOEEBIUS project, including expected energy savings and overall architecture of the MOEEBIUS system developed in residential buildings. Our pilot partner reminded all participants the most important goals of MOEEBIUS and potential benefits resulting from the project. Moreover, DEMOs objectives and pilot deployment were presented to give the all attendees better overview of role played by the neigbourhood in tests conducted within the frame of MOEEBIUS.

Living Lab workshop in Portugal

MOEEBIUS consortium members: ISQ and MAFRA organized the second Living Lab Workshop in Portugal. The meeting on Friday, 20th of April, was dedicated to presentation of developments made in MOEEBIUS living labs as well as to interaction between project's stakeholders.

ISQ 3

 

The objective of the workshop was to teach end-users how to interact with the MOEEBIUS solutions that are being installed in the Portuguese pilots. Even though MOEEBIUS solutions are mostly based on automation and do not require users feedback to work, the building occupant will still notice major changes. These changes have the objective of reducing energy consumption without compromising the occupants’ comfort. One example of these changes are the installation of dimmable fixtures, that automatically regulates the light level so that this level is always comfortable to occupants and maximizes the use of natural light.

Other change that is noticeable to occupants is the NOD device. This device will be present in each rooms and allows to monitor ambiance variables that will be used by the MOEEBIUS middleware to predict the most energy efficiency automation strategies that can be implemented at any given time.

ISQ 2

Besides explaining how MOEEBIUS solutions work and the objectives of the project pilots, the workshop had the objective of showing on-site the installed sensors and actuators and to sensitize end-users to the importance of energy efficiency.
