EPC based Digital Building Twins for Smart Energy Systems
The project EPC4SES – EPC based Digital Building Twins for Smart Energy Systems – aims at decarbonizing heating & cooling energy demand through the reduction of peak load by adding model predictive control functions on the consumption according to the generation. EPC4SES is exploiting input data – needed for the Energy Performance Certificate EPC -for optimal planning and operational control of smart energy systems, for defining innovative applications. The best evaluated model-based prediction applications will be implemented as research prototypes with real data from the three pilot regions Andalusia, Berlin and Salzburg/Vienna to measure impact and effort in establishing virtual (digital) twins of building pairs or neighborhoods. All results and new ideas to support decarbonization through virtual storage and interoperable smart energy systems will be fed back to the ERANET scientific community.
