EnerBuild - Democratise the process of energy consumption optimisation by means of smart building technologies

The project aims to mitigate climate change by optimising energy consumption by means of smart building technologies and industrial IoT, as well as by monitoring the environment and air quality in the building for compliance with standards. The project envisages combined deployment of the industrial IoT platform HiPerWare by BPS International (Germany) and the intelligent maintenance management platform (‘IMMP’) by Infraspeak (Portugal) at a pilot building provided by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria (Spain).

The combined solution will track and analyse utility systems of the pilot building by collecting Big Data on their operation, with the creation of a live digital twin, detecting abnormal behavior and providing data-based optimization recommendations. These recommendations will be managed by the innovative IMMP by Infraspeak, leading to significant improvement in energy consumption, reduction of equipment downtime, and optimizing operational performance.

The goal

The combination of IIoT Big Data platform HiPerWare with a leading IMMP by Infraspeak, capable of automated triggers and workflow management will create a state-of-the art energy efficiency optimisation solution for management teams in buildings, where advanced Building Management Systems (BMS) are either not installed or not economically viable.

Our project will identify best data points and frameworks to collect technical operations data, air quality and environmental data, integrate BPS analytical platform and Infraspeak’s system to ensure that maintenance teams realise the impact of IoT solution and act on energy efficiency recommendations. These will be based on collected Big Data and industry expertise of BPS International.

Additionally, requirement analysis will be done to understand the triggers and procedures that building operators need and call to actions so that recommendations are guaranteed to be implemented, and efficiency improvements are controlled and monitored
