HIT2GAP: Highly Innovative building control Tools Tackling the energy performance gap
EU / H2020 Grant Agreement No.: 680708
Topic: EeB-07-2015 New tools and methodologies to reduce the gap between predicted and actual energy performances at the level of buildings and blocks of buildings
Starting date of project: 1st of September 2015 Duration: 48 month
The actual energy consumption of buildings in Europe often significantly exceeds the expected energy requirements. This gap in energy performance can arise from construction errors or from differences between the way a building was intended to be used and how it is actually used.
An energy management platform could help to reduce this energy gap - and this will be easier thanks to a new and innovative energy reporting platform.
To create a new energy reporting platform, the HIT2GAP project will deliver:
The modules are explained in more detail here.
The aims of the HIT2GAP project are:
The HIT2GAP partners are working together to create a platform which is both generic and modular, which could be used in a wide variety of buildings and groups of buildings.
It will include plug-and-play modules that are designed to inform users about the operational performance of their building(s), based on data collected at building level.
The image above shows the platform architecture.
