In the morning, REHVA organized a workshop entirely dedicated to the QUANTUM project supported by The European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme chaired by REHVA Managing Director, Anita Derjanecz.
Reducing complexity and increase effectiveness with ICT-based tools that collect, monitor and interpret representative data sets are critical steps on the way to close the performance gap between predicted and real energy consumption, as well as to enhance occupant comfort. The workshop presented the QUANTUM approach and the developed ICT based tools: The digital performance test bench for technical monitoring, the ENG9 energy monitoring tool, and the Comfortmeter survey tool assessing perceived comfort of occupants, which are all being demonstrated in many buildings across Europe.
The QUANTUM technical monitoring concept is now endorsed by AMEV, the German federal government agency for public buildings, proving its potential to be up taken by regulatory frameworks. The four presentations of the tool owner partners were followed by a lively discussion with the participants that lasted during the networking lunch.
