 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'To solve the energy dilemma, research effort was concentrated on stand-alone buildings weakly tight to their immediate environment. Specifically in each building only key sub-systems were considered individually. Such individual systems were made more effective by becoming pervasive into any building area (the reign of “boxes” and “controllers”). Importing parameters from other sub-systems allowed better regulations (Access or Occupancy management systems). Energy Usage Analysis tools are fairly new on the market. They provide the capability to analyse energy profiles of scattered buildings of large corporations. Energy usage analysis and planning on a district level is inexistent. Neither is Energy Usage Modelling leveraged in control schemes. This leaves an unexplored area for more effective building control schemes and suggests a potential of each smart building to contribute to District level energy optimization schemes, thanks to appropriate behavioural and stochastic models.

In parallel, efforts made many more renewable and cogeneration energy sources available as high capacity energy storage systems. Such systems now increasingly enter into the planning of large districts, but still timidly penetrate individual buildings. Thus, energy flows (electrical or thermal) can be managed through energy usage schemes, planned in time for significant savings.

To reach this aim, it is proposed to play in real time adaptive and predictive behavioural models of buildings and districts, exposed to weather conditions, human presence, energy-efficient materials and technologies. Such models will allow finding optimal supply/demand balancing. Building energy management systems will be turned in real-time configurable ones, bringing flexibility to the building. Thus, buildings will establish, in real-time, energy schemes with the district energy management and information system (DEMIS). AMBASSADOR‘s vision: Flexible buildings to make eco-friendly districts.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Clean and secure energy is high on the European Commission agenda, making the sustainable development of urban areas a key challenge. An EU initiative is developing smart cities technologies to reduce and manage energy consumption.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Technologies and methods exist to enhance energy efficiency, curb carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and convert renewables into viable energy sources. However, these require integrated approaches for cities, in terms of both research and development of innovative technological solutions and deployment.

The EU-funded 'Autonomous management system developed for building and district levels' (http://www.ambassador-fp7.eu (AMBASSADOR)) project seeks to implement a holistic method to optimise energy in a city by examining the efficiency of its districts and buildings. To achieve this, it will exploit the possibility of shared use of local energy production and storage.

Activities are centred on the district in its entirety, defined by the consortium as a collection of buildings, industrial facilities, activities or services that consume or produce any type of energy.

Buildings account for a large amount of energy consumption in districts, and this is where project efforts began. Researchers are designing energy conservation solutions, including heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems and hot water preparation, to lower consumption in buildings.

Project work is continuing with the design of real-time energy optimisation strategies at district level by taking into account key actors, including energy providers and distributors, as well as consumers.

Researchers continue to define the hardware and software architecture for a centralised and intuitive energy management system that is at the core of AMBASSADOR. It will work by gathering information from all the smart systems and then decide the best way to balance the energy at district and building levels. The system will be validated in building sites in Greece, France and the United Kingdom.

AMBASSADOR intends to render districts and buildings more energy efficient through the application of pioneering technology. It will then be in a position to help the EU meet targets to halve CO2 emissions by 2050.
