SCIS demonstration and urban planning projects

TRIBE

The TRIBE project aims to contribute to a change in citizens’ behaviour towards energy efficiency in public buildings, through their engagement in the experience of playing a social game, linked by ICT to real time data collected from five pilot buildings hosting around 1300 regular users (employees, tenants, etc.) and almost 12000 eventual users...

STORM

The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. It aims to demonstrate that thanks to a smart DHC network controller energy savings can reach up to 30%. In that perspective, the project partners will develop a controller based on self-learning...

REPLICATE

The REPLICATE project will generate smart city business models, and tailor-made solutions in the areas of energy, transport and ICT. There will be pilot actions in energy efficiency, efficient and sustainable transport and integrated infrastructures. The key to the project’s approach is in recognising the inherent complexity of urban challenges... Continue reading

MORE-CONNECT

The European building sector is currently unable to offer an integral solution for deep renovation toward nearly zero energy building (nZEB) at reasonable cost. The building process is typically based on a ‘layered’ structure, with many labour actions on the buildings site, with many sub disciplines involved, leading to extra costs and failure...

IMPRESS

IMPRESS will leverage on the potential of prefabrication by developing a new range of easy to install panels, which can reduce energy demand while preserving and/or improving building aesthetics. Three prefabricated panels will be developed, both for re-cladding and over-cladding, together with nano/micro particle based coatings, to achieve anti-... Continue reading
