HYPERTECH Energy Labs have been awarded a new R&D contract from the European Commission (Project: ACCEPT - ACtive Communities & Energy Prosumers for the energy Transition). Demand flexibility from residential buildings is the main untapped source of flexibility currently in the market and promises significant flexibility potential, especially taking into account the electrification of heat and transport mega-trends. Energy communities are a promising organizational vehicle for involving citizens – who directly control residential demand - in the energy transition, but currently lack the necessary tools to exploit the available opportunities and create financially viable operations based on the provision of services that citizens want.

HYPERTECH Energy Labs have been awarded a new R&D contract from the European Commission (Project SENDER: Sustainable Consumer engagement and demand response) A key feature of the SENDER solution will be its pro-activeness, characterized by the fact that, unlike current demand-response systems, consumers will not react to signals received from the market and grid operators. Sensor data from the consumer’s premises and the environment will be collected and processed in a cyber-secure way to identify typical pro-/consumption patterns based on artificial intelligence technologies. The clustering of identified characteristics according to gender and climatic conditions, values, will allow creating highly accurate, predictive consumption/load patterns of digital twins that represent various consumer/prosumer profiles.

D^2EPC Grant

HYPERTECH Energy Labs have been awarded a new R&D contract from the European Commission (Project: D^2EPC: Next-generation Dynamic Digital EPCs for Enhanced Quality and User Awareness). D^2EPC aims to set the grounds for the next generation of dynamic Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for buildings. The proposed framework sets its foundations on the smart-readiness level of the buildings and the corresponding data collection infrastructure and management systems. It is fed by operational data and adopts the ‘digital twin’ concept to advance Building Information Modelling, calculates a novel set of energy, environmental, financial and human comfort/ wellbeing indicators, and through them the EPC classification of the building in question.
