KnoholEM is knowledge-based energy management for public buildings through holistic information modeling and 3D visualization. It is a collaborative research project co-financed by the European Commission within the scope of the 7th FrameworkProgramme. Its international consortium consists of 13 partners from 6 different countries.

The main objective of the project is to elaborate an intelligent energy management solution for energy efficient buildings and spaces of public use.

BAAS The BaaS system aims to optimize energy performance in the application domain of “non-residential buildings, in operational stage. In the building operational life-cycle three significant tasks have to be continuously performed: collect information and assess the buildings current state; predict the effect that various decisions will have to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs); and optimize performance. A generic ICT-enabled system will be developed to provide integrated assess, predict, optimize (APO) services that guarantee harmonious and parsimonious use of available resources.
SEEDSSEEDS_logo The SEEDS project develops innovative technologies for optimizing building’s performance in terms of energy, comfort, and life cycle costs. It is based on an innovative modelling methodology based on measurements, self-learning, optimization techniques and wireless technologies. SEEDS can be applied to buildings and surrounding open spaces. SEEDS is particularly attractive for the retrofitting of existing buildings.

NiCE is supporting signatory cities in three key areas:

1. Tools for cities : Establishing monitoring and reporting tools for cities to be able to measure their ICT carbon footprint and link their work to other initiatives.Developing frameworks for action to aid cities at all stages during their efforts to green ICT.

2. City support and action: Offering support to cities through a series of targeted exchange and learning activities.

3. Outreach and engagement: Organising a series of networking and visibility events to increase the number of Charter signatories and showcase cooperation opportunities with relevant stakeholders.
