EnergyVille is a frontrunner on the topic of smart buildings and building automation and control systems (BACS).
Two of our VITO colleagues (Stijn Verbeke and Paul Van Tichelen) recently presented a webinar on this topic in the Leonardo Energy series, focusing on the current European policy framework on smart buildings and BACS.
Two studies conducted by EnergyVille/VITO for the European Commission are specifically highlighted:
- A preparatory study for Ecodesign BACS
- A study preparing the concept of a Smart Readiness Indicator for buildings. This latter study was recently completed (more info here) and explored the first steps towards the adoption of a EU wide certification scheme for smart buildings. One of the first two buildings this provisional methodology was tested on is our EnergyVille 1 building, which indeed received a very high smart readiness score.
