Project description This research project aims to use 3D models of buildings and cities, characteristic values and heat consumption data to develop a web portal able to forecast and certify heat requirements, propose refurbishments and recommend energy-saving measures. A workflow which enables the service to be made available at municipal level will also be developed. Existing technologies, concepts and techniques taken from a variety of disciplines and areas of research will be amalgamated to create an energy benchmarking system which will be made available to consumers in the form of a web portal. This tool will facilitate the use of available building data to estimate a building’s energy requirements and simulate alternative scenarios (e.g. after energy-efficient refurbishment). This will empower building owners to identify potential energy savings, check advice or refurbishment proposals put forward by third parties and in turn avoid investing in inefficient measures. In addition, the tool will enable local authorities to carry out calculations and simulations focusing on specific districts. Importantly, the tool will also make it possible for existing data banks to be connected up and evaluated. This will give local authorities a sound basis for substantiated decisions on issues such as refurbishment programmes – which will in turn benefit consumers.
