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.


The aim of the report was to develop proposal of four innovative ESCO business models and three innovative Demand Response (DR) business models. The ESCO business models developed introduce energy management based on enhanced energy performance contracts (EPCs), a condition/efficiency EPC model for ESCOs, a tool for raising occupants’ awareness for energy savings and the valorisation of buildings through energy certification. Incorporation of comfort and health parameters as part of an EPC, real time automation, predictive maintenance, gamification and behavioural triggering are some examples of innovative aspects that were introduced in the ESCO business models. Regarding DR, the business models developed include predictive analytics, peak demand management and a flexible DSM framework for participation on external market.
