Buildings are among the most polluting entities, as research conducted by the European Commission found that they are responsible for approximately 40% of the overall energy consumption and 36% greenhouse emissions in the EU. It is therefore clear that an improvement in Buildings Energy Management (BEM) practices could have a significant impact in terms of …

Climate change is one of the most significant challenges of our time. Due to the increasing energy consumption of a steadily growing world population, CO2 emissions and greenhouse effect are continuously increasing. The building sector provides great potential to reduce CO2 emissions, since 30% of the total energy consumption is to maintain thermal comfort in …

Energy is what moves us forward. The quest for new convenient energy sources has accompanied the human species throughout its evolution, until the great breakthrough carried by the Second Industrial Revolution, with the introduction of steam machines. However, the consumption of unrenewable sources along with questionable energy policies, soon led to critical downsides: the catastrophic …

FBS-PV: Fly-by-Sensor System for Photovoltaic Energy Plant Monitoring

The FBS-PV concept regards the inclusion of on-board additional sensors to improve the UAVs’ flight accuracy in trajectory during PV O&M procedures without the need of external compensation from human operators. Accuracy is guaranteed by the perfect overflight of the rows of photovoltaic panels thanks to the use of image vision-based controllers. Principal Academic Tutor …

DAHEC: Data Analytics for Household Energy Consumption

DAHEC (Data Analytics for Household Energy Consumption) project aims to analyse and validate novel market opportunities through virtual pilot projects fed with synthetic but realistic disaggregated consumption data, overcoming the obstacles of real pilot projects. The synthetic data are outputs of a simulator of households’ energy consumption, ad-hoc implemented during the project. The innovative path …
