HIT2GAP has developed a facility for fault detection and diagnosis using principal component analysis.  It works by comparing current data against a reference model which has been constructed from historical data.  The module behind this service, known as the 'FDD-PCA module', analyses the values and variances of the incoming data from a building's sensors, looking for any instances where the incoming data does not fit the model.  If an abnormal set of readings is identified, the contribution of each variable is analysed in order to determine which variables were connected with the faulty reading, enabling the nature of the abnormaility to be identified.  HIT2GAP's FDD-PCA module is currently being trialled in the Bouygues Challenger building, near Paris.

Public Deliverable 1.8

Public deliverable 1.8, the project's Data Management Plan, has been prepared by Nobatek, the lead partner in the consortium, and reviewed by Apintech and by Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour.  This document is likely to evolve during the lifetime of the project, with periodic updates.  The report provides information about the data which the project will collect and generate, whether and how this dataset will be shared and how the data will be preserved.

Public Deliverable 2.2

Public deliverable 2.2, which is a synthesis report on the benchmark conducted in the field of new data fields in offices, was provided by Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (LIUPPA) with contributions from IK4-Tekniker, and reviewed by the University of Strathclyde and EGE University.  This report provides a general overview of data sources (e.g. from multimedia sensors) which could be integrated into a HIT2GAP repository in order to enrich the typology and content of information and enable new features in terms of diagnosis and analysis.  The report draws upon existing studies, and lessons learnt, and seeks to identify what is feasible and applicable within the HIT2GAP framework.

HIT2GAP - Conference Paper

This conference paper, A Methodology to Develop a User-Behaviour Tool to Optimize Building Users’ Comfort and Energy Use, was delivered by Ege University at the SBE2016 Conference in Istanbul in October 2016.

Market Communication Strategy (D7.2)

This document sets out the HIT2GAP Marketing and Communications strategy and the roles and responsibilities of all 22 Project Partners in delivering the project aims how success will be measured. The marketing and communication strategy links back to the original project work plan which outlines the intentions with regard to communication, dissemination and exploitation and the delivery role of the project partners. The overall aim is to align the project within a strategic innovation context and to make the project foreground scalable, replicable and high impact.

Public Communication Materials (D7.3)

This document sets out the key aspects of HIT2GAP's public communications, which are:

  • To facilitate identification of commercial targets for the project.
  • To allow partners to communicate internally and externally through simple explanations of the research goals and findings, which can be understood by non-specialists.
  • To support partners in presentation of the findings and developments of the project at relevant conferences in both academic, industrial and public sector arenas.

Dissemination and Awareness Activities (D7.4)

This deliverable presents the dissemination and awareness activities conducted by the HIT2GAP project partners according to the marketing strategies planned in Work Package 7 and defined in Deliverable 7.2 – “Marketing Communication Strategy”. The report describes in detail these activities. 

Synthesis of the HIT2GAP methodology (D1.9)

This document presents a synthesis of the HIT2GAP methodology developed during the first year of the project by all project partners within WP1. The work carried out has set the technical specifications for the HIT2GAP platform in general and for all its modules which include:
  • user behaviour
  • data visualisation
  • fault detection and diagnosis
  • building performance assessment.

Linking HIT2GAP and adding value to the main energy modelling approaches (D1.1)

The purpose of the deliverable D1.1 is threefold:

  • To provide a concise, birds-eye view of the HIT2GAP platform functionality.
  • To elaborate on specific value adding aspects of HIT2GAP, such as the various energy modeling tools used, the issue of behaviour and its relevance to energy management, the issue of IPMVP, etc.
  • To highlight how HIT2GAP addresses the “gap” and contributes to closing it.

Newsletter One

The first project newsletter from the HIT2GAP project includes: 

  • an introduction to the problem of the energy performance gap,
  • a note of the project partners, 
  • a report on the second project meeting in San Sebastian, and
  • an interview with Nikos Sakkas, Apintech - technical director of HIT2GAP. 

Project Flyer

This tri-fold flyer provides and introduction to the HIT2GAP project, the partners and the pilot study sites. 

It is used for dissemination by project partners at conferences and other events.
