SCIS demonstration and urban planning projects

EnerGAware

The EnerGAware project will develop and test, in 100 affordable homes, a serious game that will be linked to the actual energy consumption (smart meter data) of the game user’s home and embedded in social media and networking tools. The EnerGAware solution will provide an innovative IT ecosystem in which users can play to learn about the potential... Continue reading

FLEXYNETS

FLEXYNETS will develop, demonstrate and deploy a new generation of intelligent district heating and cooling (DHC) networks that reduce energy transportation losses by working at “neutral” (15-20°C) temperature levels. Reversible heat pumps will be used to exchange heat with the DHC network on the demand side, providing the necessary cooling and... Continue reading

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

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...

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
