    Abstract

    With global emissions reaching record levels and showing no sign of peaking, the EU pledged to decarbonise its economy. EU aims to reduce GHG emissions compared to 1990 levels of 40% by 2030 and of 80-95% by 2050, whereas Italy targets to reduce by 35% emissions in the tertiary, transport and civil sectors by 2030 (PNIEC). Buildings represent 36% of CO2 emissions and account for 40% of final energy use in the EU. Any roadmap to decarbonisation should therefore include sound solutions for the building stock management and renovation, based on a coordinated framework, energy policies, incentives, and tools for implementation, especially at urban level, where the majority of the building stock lies. In the last 10 years, new tools able to assess energy conservation measures for large building stocks via dynamic simulations of ten to thousand buildings together, have been developed. These tools, called Urban Building Energy Models (UBEMs), require, nonetheless, reference buildings to provide reliable results, and current databases for this purpose are missing or are not adequate (e.g. no operation schedules, data bound to a specific geometry or geographic area only, data limited to residential buildings). A reference building (sometimes called archetype or prototype building) is a virtual building representing a significant cluster in the building stock (e.g. the reference building for detached houses built between 1950 and 1960 in a specific climate zone); in UBEMs, reference buildings are associated to a geometry (usually obtained from GIS), and final results reliability is bound to the significance and accuracy of the reference buildings adopted. The project URBEM will bridge the current knowledge gap, by providing a national database for reference buildings to be used by UBEM tools. To do so the team will establish a sound methodology based on the use of data analytics (e.g. machine learning), to make the process replicable and scalable to EU level. All available databases at national, regional and local level, concerning building fabric (e.g. SIAPE), building systems (e.g. CURIT) and energy use (e.g. DSO’s database, ISTAT survey) will be investigated, to gather information, complementing existing archetype databases (e.g. TABULA project) and adapting them to the specific needs of UBEM tools. Data availability will be broadened recurring to alternative data sources, including open data, and the use of any data related to buildings and users collected for any purpose, also with incomplete observations or accompanying data, that may, nonetheless, constitute a research prospect. By applying data cleaning, reduction and transformation as part of the developed methodology, alternative data sources will be integrated in structured databases, complementing them and broadening research results. The project will provide a tool to simulate scenarios of intervention at urban scale, to be used by public authorities to inform energy policies and incentives.

    Abstract

    TIMEPAC will foster the implementation of a more holistic approach to energy certification by considering: a) the overall cycle of EPC related data, from generation to storage, to analysis and exploitation, throughout all the building lifecycle, from design, to construction and operation b) that buildings are part of a larger ecosystem which includes energy and transport networks, and the built environment and c) that buildings are dynamic entities, continuously changing over time. Innovative procedures to foster this holistic approach in practice will be developed in five Transversal Deployment Scenarios (TDS) to be developed with the participation of the partner organizations, at a European scale. These scenarios will provide methods and tools to apply a holistic approach to EPC in current practices, across five realms:• TDS1 – Integration of BIM with EPC • TDS2 – Enhancing EPC schemas through operational data integration • TDS3 – Creating Building Renovation Passports from data repositories • TDS4 – Integration of Smart Readiness Indicators and sustainability indicators in EPC • TDS5 – Large scale statistical analysis of EPC databases

  • OPTIMISING THE ENERGY USE IN CITIES WITH SMART DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM, (2013-2016) - Responsabile Scientifico

    UE-funded research

    Abstract

    Cities are expected to play a key role in the implementation of Europe 2020 strategy. The city authorities need to lead relevant actions towards energy-efficient neighborhoods. Engaging city authorities in this respect is of paramount importance.Although there are plenty of energy and other related data sets available in city level, their appropriate integration for local authorities' decision support remains a challenge. Indeed, there are no approaches and respective systems using multidisciplinary data sources to analyze and integrate them in a smart way, towards cities' energy optimization.The overall vision of the project "OPTIMising the energy USe in cities with smart decision support systems (OPTIMUS)" is the design, development and implementation of a Decision Support System (DSS) addressed to city authorities, in order to assist them to optimize the energy use in their premises and reduce CO2 emissions.OPTIMUS will provide an integrated ICT platform that will collect and structure open data sets from five domains (namely: weather conditions, social mining, buildings' energy profiles, energy prices, energy production). Moreover, OPTIMUS will use semantic/intelligent technologies so as to combine them and propose energy optimization plans. The resulting web-based DSS will be validated through pilot applications in three different cities: Savona (Italy), Sant Cugat del Vallès (Spain) and Zaanstad (The Netherlands).OPTIMUS will have, by design, the necessary degree of generalization so as to be easily adapted to cities with different characteristics. This is related to another goal of the project, i.e. to produce an advanced and intelligent turn-key solution addressed to any city that has as purpose to implement and monitor sustainable energy action plans.

    Abstract

    While many cities in Europe and in the world have issued climate change policies and set targets for reduction of CO2 emissions, their implementation in urban planning practice remains a major challenge. Devising effective decision systems which support CO2 emissions reduction demands a systems approach which enables different actors -policy makers, planners, engineers, consultants, and inhabitants- to correlate a diversity of problems, spanning across distinct domains and geographic scales. The technological approach of SEMANCO is based on the integration of energy related open data structured according to standards, semantically modeled and interoperable with a set of tools for visualizing, simulating and analyzing the multiple interrelationships between factors determining CO2 production. A Semantic Energy Information Framework (SEIF) will be developed to model the energy-related knowledge planners and decision makers need. The tools interoperating with the framework will support systems innovation and include available technologies, enhancements to existing open source platforms, and new technological solutions. SEMANCO will carry out an analysis requirements to support the application of the tools by the different stakeholders involved in energy related urban planning. The development of the tools and methods will be informed by three case study scenarios in Spain, UK and Denmark which will cover three geographical scales -neighbourhood, municipal and regional- including both existing and new urban areas. The case studies will identify the relevant indicators and the interrelationship between factors contributing to CO2 production in the analyzed urban areas. Based on this analysis, tools and methods will be developed as the project progress. Their application within the cases of study will demonstrate quantifiable and significant reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions achieved through ICT and will make it possible to assess their social impact.
