National Stakeholder Forum News Update

Italian National Stakeholder Meeting held in Milan - 24 January 2017 - Information provided by Gianluca Signore of R2M

HIT2GAP partners recently held a stakeholders’ workshop in Milan on solutions to optimise the management of buildings and reduce the gap between projected performance and reality.

The workshop, held at Politecnico di Milano on 24 January, aimed at informing the Italian stakeholder community about progress in HIT2GAP and a sister project called QUANTUM, (which H2G partner BRE is also participating in) provided an overview of the two projects, including their most innovative aspects.


The morning opened with a presentation by eERG-PoliMI on the monitoring and control of a zero-energy building.  This was followed by R2M Solution’s presentation on reducing the gap between projected and actual performance by using the HIT2GAP platform.  The first session of the morning was then rounded off with a presentation (by eERG-PoliMI) which focused on controlling the quality in building and the tools and opportunities offered by the QUANTUM project.

The second session began with a presentation by R2M Solution about the main modules of the HIT2GAP platform, then a presentation by ABO DATA’s Pierangelo Barettoni on the HIT2GAP Field Internet-of-Things (IoT) services.  Finally, ENERGY TEAM delivered a presentation on tools and methods for measuring energy-efficiency before the morning concluded with round-table discussions and questions on each of the morning's presentations.
