      The NextGenSmart DC project’s premise is that the application of state-of-the-art ICT tools and techniques can improve the environmental footprint of energy-intensive facilities and deliver Smarter and Greener Data-Centers, through ‘self-help’.

      (pdf) SENSible hEating Operation Solutions
      Computer-based control of the heating system of buildings that have still manual control of radiators. The solution optimizes the heating of rooms based on fusion of information regarding users presence, external weather conditions, weather forecast, and university/user calendars. The goal is to control the room heating automatically and heat only when users are present, thus, optimizing the temperature given the weather exposition and the actual number of occupants present in the room.

      (urlSustainable Buildings 
      Our first Proof-of-Concept project is “The Bernoulliborg – The building of Sustainability”. In this project, we apply our first smart energy solutions to an existing building to make it even more energy-efficient and that way to generate significant additional savings!
