    Three industrial SMEs (ICM, QIVIVO and DEMO) and a public research institution (University of Vigo) from three EU countries are joining expertise in different building energy efficiency domains to develop and commercialize Enginency. Our approach will help to deliver, implement and optimize the energy efficiency of buildings, with technical, economic and societal potential to drastically reduce energy consumption and decrease CO2 emissions, addressing both new facilities and retrofitting and/or managing of existing ones. Enginency will support energy managers and expert´s decisions through the integration of energy audit with advanced technological solutions for automated measurement acquisition, simulation over automatically calibrated models and analysis engines to deliver a holistic tool to inspect building, and measure, manage, report and improve their energy efficiency. Enginency will be commercialized as Software as a Service, facilitating the implementation and acquisition of this powerful system while decreasing both costs of deployment and maintenance to the end user, without requiring the presence of IT experts. In particular, Enginency will allow the final user to reduce the energy consumption of buildings of above 50%, with a zero-risks formula, while allowing Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) a 94% reduction of the inspection costs and an 88% reduction of the inspection duration, obtaining 15% more accurate results, with a payback time of only 12.4 months. The Enginency consortium will take advantage of the substantial foreseen growth of the energy efficient market in Europe, as well as of the experience and current distribution network of its partners, to deliver its solution to ESCOs and final users generating 65 new jobs inside the consortium and a cumulative revenue of 20.4M€ over the first five years of commercialization, representing a unique opportunity of growth and market expansion for the members of the consortium.

    The overall aim of MOBISTYLE is to raise consumer awareness and awareness of ownership, thus empowering consumers and providing confidence of choosing the right thing, by providing attractive tailor-made combined knowledge services on energy use, indoor environment, health and lifestyle, by ICT-based solutions. This awareness will support and motivate end-users to well informed pro-active behavior towards energy use, energy efficiency and health. The objectives are: 1. To make energy use and energy efficiency understandable and easy to handle in an attractive way by unlocking and translating large data sets using data science from energy monitoring for consumers. a. To transform ‘big data’ into ‘smart data’, i.e. giving meanings to data, making data understandable and findable. b. To develop easy to use, desirable ICT-based tools which will make energy monitoring a well-accepted and attractive ‘daily activity’ for end-users as well as for professionals (building managers). 2. To provide understandable information to consumers on health and life style in relation to energy use by combining energy monitoring with monitoring indoor environmental and behavior parameters a. To combine the several low-cost, non-intrusive devices and monitoring with the energy monitoring. b. To offer the end user transparency on energy use/efficiency, indoor environment, health and lifestyle. 3. To motivate behavioral change of consumers/energy end-users by combined modular information on energy use, health and lifestyle: To transform this information into knowledge for raising awareness on energy use and behavior, thus motivating and supporting to come to a behavioral consciousness and change of lifestyle concerning energy and health. 4. To foster new business models and applications 5. To deploy and validate the developed solutions and services in different building types and user types, demonstrating a significant reduction of final energy use, prompted by these solutions.

    D^2EPC ambitiously aims to set the grounds for the next generation of dynamic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for buildings. The proposed framework sets its foundations on the smart-readiness level of the buildings and the corresponding data collection infrastructure and management systems. It is fed by operational data and adopts the ‘digital twin’ concept to advance Building Information Modelling, calculate a novel set of energy, environmental, financial and human comfort/ wellbeing indicators, and through them the EPC classification of the building in question. Under the project vision, the proposed indicators will render dynamic EPCs a realistic, accurate and comprehensive tool that can lead the transformation of the European building stock into zero-energy buildings and stimulate energy efficient behavioural change of the building occupants. To this direction, D^2EPC proposes a digital platform that will enable the issuance and update of new EPCs on a regular basis, integrate a GIS environment and provide, on top, value added services including user-centred recommendations for energy renovation, benchmarking and forecasting of buildings’ performance as well as performance verification services. The proposed scheme will contribute to the redefinition of EPC-related policies and to the update of current standards, along with guidance for their implementation and will introduce incentivisation and restriction practices into the EPC rationale. Additional benefits include enhanced user awareness and engagement on buildings’ energy efficiency, facilitated planning and decision making on local and regional policy level. To accomplish the above, the D^2EPC framework will be demonstrated in 6 sites, while its 12 partners coming from 7 European countries will collaborate and provide their expertise and resources within the 36 months of the project’s lifetime

    INCEPTION realises innovation in 3D modelling of cultural heritage through an inclusive approach for time-dynamic 3D reconstruction of artefacts, built and social environments. It enriches the European identity through understanding of how European cultural heritage continuously evolves over long periods of time. INCEPTION’s Inclusive approach comprises: time dynamics of 3D reconstruction (‘forever’); addresses scientists, engineers, authorities and citizens (‘for everybody’); and provides methods and tools applicable across Europe (‘from everywhere’). INCEPTION solves the shortcomings of state-of-the-art 3D reconstruction by significantly enhancing the functionalities, capabilities and cost-effectiveness of instruments and deployment procedures for 3D laser survey, data acquisition and processing. It solves the accuracy and efficiency of 3D capturing by integrating Geospatial Information, Global and Indoor Positioning Systems (GIS, GPS, IPS) both through hardware interfaces as well as software algorithms. INCEPTION methods and tools will result in 3D models that are easily accessible for all user groups and interoperable for use by different hardware and software. It develops an open-standard Semantic Web platform for Building Information Models for Cultural Heritage (HBIM) to be implemented in user-friendly Augmented Reality (VR and AR) operable on mobile devices. INCEPTION collaborative research and demonstration involves all disciplines (both social and technical sciences), technologies and sectors essential for creation and use of 3D models of cultural heritage. SMEs are the thrust of INCEPTION consortium that will bring the innovation into creative industries of design, manufacturing and ICT. The Consortium is fully supported by a Stakeholder Panel that represents an international organisation (UNESCO), European and national public institutions, and NGOs in all fields of cultural heritage.
