Take the energy bill back to the promised building performance
  Work packages

In order to lead the partners to achieve the TRIBUTE objectives, the structure of the work plan is divided into 10 Work Packages (WP), each targeting different objectives, tasks and expected results.

List of the Work packages with additional information can be found below.

WP1. Requirements and specifications

 Objectives

From the list of Cities requirements targeting their building portfolio and priorities for retrofitting, the complete vision and specifications of the TRIBUTE project will be defined.

WP2. Impact of occupancy on building energy performance

 Objectives

Human behavior can significantly influence building energy consumption. WP2 investigates into human activity detection and their effect on building energy performance.

WP3. BEPS key parameters

WP participants: CSEM, SE, IBM, TUD, TBC, EQUA, LRU, CT, ZF, IREC, NXP
neviditelny text
 Objectives

This Work Package aims at identifying key discrepancies between the state of the art design process BEPS and actual buildings. In the situation where phenomena are already adequately modelled, key parameters will be identified. Where models are too simple, more relevant models will be developed.

WP4. Wireless monitoring architecture

csem WP Leader: Martin Seneclauze
WP participants: CSEM, CIT, NXP
neviditelny text
 Objectives

This work package will propose an wireless communication architecture. This architecture will allow the project to deploy wirelessly connected sensors and use them to collect the necessary information for the performance analysis and comparison with the model. This infrastructure will ensure that many types of connected sensors can be used by interfacing heterogeneous networks to a common database.

WP5. Building on-line identification tool (i-BEPS)

EQUAnoSTG1263x345 WP Leader: Per Sahlin
WP participants: EQUA, CSEM, SE, IBM, TUD, TBC, LRU, IREC
neviditelny text
 Objectives

This WP targets the development of a building real time key parameter identification protocol and tool based on the sensor toolkit defined in WP3. Combined with occupancy models of WP2, this tool will allow energy gap reduction and accelerated performance assessment. It will insure a feedback to the i-BEPS, when being deployed on a building. It will be fed by the measurements provided by the wireless sensor network. It will be the base for retrofit option.

WP6. Retrofit options

TBC WP Leader: Christel Jimenez
WP participants: TBC, CSEM, EQUA, LRA, LRU, CT, ZF, IREC
neviditelny text
 Objectives

Using the tool and methodology developed in WP5, this work package will develop a tool that will be able to propose and evaluate retrofit options to the building’s stakeholders (owners, inhabitants, etc…). Retrofit options will mostly include improvements of building constitutive elements performance (walls, roofs, insulation, windows) but will also consider HVAC and renewable energy systems as well as the set-up of novel energy control strategies.

WP7. Smart energy control and monitoring system

Schneider Electric WP Leader: Henri Obara
WP participants: SE, CSEM, CIT, IBM, TBC, LRA, LRU, CT, POLI, ZF, TEK, NXP, AMI
neviditelny text
 Objectives

Based on sensor measurements, novel energy flow management at building level will be proposed as well as building health monitoring techniques. Analytics and advanced data management tools will help to identify new solutions for reducing the gap. Involve the building occupant, by a persuasive user’s interface.

WP8. Validation and deployment at testing sites

WP participants: LRA, CSEM, SE, IBM, LRU, CT, POLI, ZF, TEK, NXP
neviditelny text
 Objectives

Aims at validating the TRIBUTE development on the selected test sites. Necessary sensors, communication and control hardware will be installed on test sites. I-BEPS performances will be assessed, in terms of energy performance prediction and retrofit advice, while the BHM tool will be assessed in terms of fault detection. On-site deployment of the tools will be carried out taking into account the occupant’s feedback.

WP9. Public awareness and results exploitation

WP participants: AMI, CSEM, SE, IBM, TUD, EQUA, LRA, CT, ZF, IREC, TEK
neviditelny text
 Objectives

This work package runs in parallel with the whole project, covers training activities and will disseminate the most important results from previous work packages and ensure the exploitation of the TRIBUTE results. This work package is also dedicated to contribution to new and on-going international standardization efforts on the energy efficiency of buildings.

WP10. Financial and administrative management

 Objectives

The objective of this task is to assure that the results of the project will be disseminated to the European research and industrial community, will also target all stakeholders of the smart city value chain and will assure an on-going communication between the general public, municipalities, housing associations, architects and energy consultants etc. on one side and partners of the project on the other.
