Webinar: Achieving increased energy efficiency in administrative public offices through behavioural improvements. An overviewCesar Truco
Come join us on a webinar where we will present the general methodology of the project along with providing deeper insights into the various components that comprise the OrbEEt framework. Additionally, we will assess the current status of deployment of the OrbEEt system at the pilot sites where the project is tested in practice.
The webinar will take place on January 12th, 11 AM CET and registration is available on the following link: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/3744865523892870403. Presenters will be Mr. Dery Torres PhD, a Project Manager at Solintel M&P S.L and Mr. Ivan Sharlandzhiev, International Projects at Balkanika Energy.
Buildings account for a significant part of the EU’s total energy consumption. Hence reducing their energy imprint is a matter of imminent importance when tackling the issue of climate change. Using more energy efficient devices and building materials are only some of the ways to decrease a buildings energy needs. Another such approach is changing the behaviour and habits of its occupants which is arguably the most economical way to achieving that goal. Similarly aligned is the purpose of the Horizon2020- funded project OrbEEt (ORganizational Behaviour improvement for Energy Efficient adminisTrative public offices) which aims to tackle the energy reduction of tertiary sector EU buildings by changing the users’ behaviour.
To accomplish this goal, OrbEEt utilizes a combination of Building Information and Process Models along with real-time energy consumption measurements which are aimed at triggering behavioural change towards energy efficiency. By employing various engaging user interfaces and providing personalized consumer feedback, accountability and direct impact of the people, processes and spaces can be easily tracked, analysed and steered towards a gradual reduction of energy consumption.
