Smart Buildings

The research focuses on developing ICT-centred solutions for improving the energy-efficiency of existing buildings and ensuring the energy-performance of buildings certified according to energy efficiency and sustainability standards like ENERGY Star, LEED and Green Globes. Specific solutions address; automated monitoring, evaluation and diagnostics of building energy performance; intelligent building control considering relevant factors including occupant behavior, weather conditions, operation of building systems, building typology and thermodynamics; and grid integration of buildings for providing demand response services for the main grid or during periods of demand peaks or production shortages.
