In this study, a novel data-driven methodology is proposed to measure and verify energy efficiency savings, with a special focus on commercial buildings and facilities. The presented approach involves building use characterization by analysing typical consumption profile patterns and studying the building’s weather dependency. The characterization is then used to design a model able to
The EU Green Deal sets the objective of a climate-neutral EU by 2050. In order to achieve this goal, the annual building renovation rate should at least double by 2030. The investments needed cannot come from the public sector alone and would require substantial private sector involvement. The European Commission has recognised the potential of
How can building policies facilitate the development of performance-based energy efficiency programmes, like Pay-for-Performance (P4P) schemes, in the EU? SENSEI has launched a survey to help P4P schemes’ replicability in Europe. This survey supports SENSEI in identifying how policy and regulatory developments in the EU may become a risk or an opportunity for P4P schemes,
Ground breaking tool measures energy savings across portfolios of buildings, which could be used to replace inaccurate ‘deemed’ estimates of energy savings, creating a foundation for energy companies to contract for energy savings instead of fossil fuels. A next generation energy efficiency meter named eensight has been created. The eensight tool is based
The SENSEI project is now half-way through its timeline so it is time for a status and to share three major updates! Firstly, we are glad to present a new landmark technology: a next-generation energy efficiency meter named eensight has been created based on machine learning and is being made available to the SENSEI stakeholder community for scrutiny and further development.
