We would like to inform you about the completion of TRIBUTE project’s second period through the organisation and successful completion of a M36 review meeting.

During the M36 review meeting that took place in October 2016 in Brussels (BE), the consortium presented achievements done during the first 36 months to Project Officer – Mrs. Dominique Planchon – and Project Technical Advisor – Ms. Chantal Stagno-Navarra. Significant progress was made in all parts of the project including preparation of the simulation models, development of the algorithms, installation of the sensors at the testing sites, selection of communication protocols, definition of the architecture, development of occupancy detection strategies or creation of the retrofit options database. The consortium received a strong encouragement from both Project Officer and Project Technical Advisor.

TRIBUTE at EeB PPP Impact Workshop in Brussels

The Workshop on Impact of the Energy Efficient Buildings Public Private Partnership (EeB PPP) will take place in Brussels on 18 and 19 April 2016.

The event is organised jointly by the EC and the E2BA. It provides an opportunity to present projects, share results and highlight challenges. Projects that will be presented includes approaches to market assessment, performance monitoring, extensive demonstration activity, pilot production, training and education actions. Some projects are already demonstrating impactful results through patent applications, technology cost reduction and spin out set up.

In order to maximise impact of the PPP, participation of all the stakeholders is fundamental from end users to industrial/ academic partners and public authorities. Other important factors include early stage development of commercialisation strategies and approaches for standardisation of products. Projects also need support at early stage to develop solid exploitation strategies that speed time to market. Timely and targeted regulation are also strong drivers of market uptake.

TRIBUTE consortium will be represented by Mr. Henri Obara from Schneider Electric, the Scientific Coordinator of TRIBUTE project.

TRIBUTE in EeB PPP Project Review 2016

AMBASSADOR_EeB_project_review_2015The 5th edition of the EeB PPP Project Review 2016 has been recently published and TRIBUTE project is among the presented projects.

In the framework of the EeB PPP, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the Energy Efficient Buildings (E2B) Committee of the ECTP, one of the commitments consists in monitoring the impacts and exploitable outcomes generated by the projects. This yearly publication presents the progress of 110 co-funded projects within the EeB PPP under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 and 17 new co-funded projects under the Horizon 2020 programme for 2014.

This new edition highlights current results and achieved or potential impact of the EeB PPP projects. The projects demonstrate scientific and technological excellence, across all levels, from early stage conception to demonstration of almost ready-to-market innovations. Distributed into 7 technology-clusters defined according to the construction-related research and innovation value chain from the EeB PPP Roadmap (Design, Technology Building Blocks, Advanced materials and nanotechnology, Construction process, Energy performance monitoring & management, ICT and BIM), they illustrate the diverse innovation approaches and the importance of embracing all aspects of the building and construction sectors.
