BRESAER interaction with the standardisation system
25 Oct 2018 – PDF (4.34 MB)

BRESAER’s standardisation activities will be a facilitator of the acceptance and utilisation by the market of the BRESAER solutions, as well as a tool to improve the development and the exploitation strategy of the project. This document summarizes the actions carried out by the consortium in this regard and their results.


BRESAER geocluster tool
25 Oct 2018 – PDF (1.71 MB)

The BRESAER geocluster tool is a web-based tool to visualize the potential of the BRESAER system on a map of Europe. The tool enables the user to get an indication of the energy saving potential and the investment cost of different BRESAER envelope configurations for all geoclusters in Europe. Currently the energy saving potential data is only available for 4 climate zones restricting the use of the outcomes. However, by extending the data to a higher level of detail in the future, the usability of the tool increases and it can become a strong policy and decision support tool.


BRESAER communicates: report of the third year’s activity
31 Jan 2018 – PDF (1.48 MB)

BRESAER communication strategy, implementation and provisional results after the first three years from the project start are the objects of the present report, which follows the First Year’s Performed Communication and Second Year’s Performed Communication, previously released. The new version will therefore present the new activities undertaken during the third year of project, as well as giving an update on the ones previously started.


BRESAER communicates: report of the second year’s activity
31 Jan 2017 – PDF (1.24 MB)

BRESAER communication strategy, implementation and provisional results after the first two years from the project start are the objects of the present report, which follows the First Year’s Performed Communication, previously released. The new version will therefore present the new activities undertaken during the second year of project, as well as giving an update on the ones previously started.


BRESAER’s Data Management Plan
31 Jan 2017 – PDF (438.82 KB)

During the lifetime of the BRESAER project, partners will generate different datasets from the activities that are being implemented. Most of these datasets are in fact related to the technologies that are being developed, such as simulation data or data from the demonstration. If you are interested in knowing more about these datasets, and possibily to access them, be sure to check BRESAER’s Data Management Plan, where you’ll find detailed indication of the confidentiality levels for data, their dissemination strategy and the timings for the their publication..


The BRESAER system design guide is now available online
30 Apr 2016 – PDF (7.78 MB)

This document describes the process to be followed by design teams considering application of the BRESAER system. It is based on functional requirements, energy and economic information available at the early phases of the project.  As the design process of retrofitting an existing building in an energy-saving way presents many complexities for the design teams it is essential to provide them with instruments that can facilitate application of the BRESAER system. BRESAER is currently developing a system design tool for architects and engineers who have considered or are considering to use BRESAER in their retrofit project. Such simulation tool will help maximizing the energy-saving potential for the required situation, facilitate system application by using information that designers have at the moment. The BRESAER design tool will be accessible from the BRESAER website.


Discover the BRESAER building energy management system
31 Jan 2016 – PDF (3.12 MB)

A Building Energy Management System, or BEMS, is an ICT solution for managing energy sources by means of integration of the energy systems and monitoring networks. BRESAER’s objective is to design a cost-effective computer-based control system installed in buildings that monitors and controls the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment. In this way, the document describes the end-user requirements, use cases, control scenarios and the software modelling. Moreover, a data model is envisaged with the aim of gathering and storing persistent data You can now download a report that describes the end-user requirements, use cases, control scenarios and the software modelling.


BRESAER communicates: report of the first year’s activity
31 Jan 2016 – PDF (1.11 MB)

Among the technical implementations tha BRESAER undertakes, another branch of activities are the ones devoted to communication. Their objective is to increase the project’s awareness among the general public. This involves translating the scientific, technological and professional knowledge developed into contents suitable to be communicated to a “non-expert” public. As such, it integrates the project dissemination. The present report was released at the end of the first project year and provides an overview of the project communication basis which has been set (like the creation of the project visual identity). Moreover, it summarises the communication actions performed during the first year. The BRESAER communication relies on multiple channels: website, semi-annual newsletter, external events, distribution of journalistic articles, news and press releases.


BRESAER project reveals its concept design and methodology for building refurbishment
31 Dec 2015 – PDF (8.49 MB)

As part of activities conducted within Task 2.2 “System concept design and definition of the building refurbishment methodology”, the BRESAER team has analysed a number of factors, which include:
  • the possible combinations among innovative elements based on their location in the envelope,
  • functionality,
  • interaction between innovative elements and the existing building,
  • system modularity,
  • anchorage
  • structural advantages and caveats.
Moreover, other aspects have been considered, like compliance to European standards, commissioning process and features available in the building energy management system. The ultimate goal of this exercise has been to establish where components must be located on the building, which requirements in terms of architectural design and the system’s limitations.

Existing standards and standardization landscape
31 Jul 2015 – PDF (2.40 MB)

Standards are voluntary technical documents that set out requirements for a specific item, material, component, system or service, or describes in detail a particular method, procedure or best practice. Standards are developed and defined through a process of sharing knowledge and building consensus among technical experts nominated by interested parties and other stakeholders – including businesses, consumers and environmental groups, among others. The standardization bodies operate at National, Regional or International level. With the present report, the BRESAER projects wants to facilitate the acceptance and utilisation  of its solutions by the market. The analysis of standardisation rules and protocols have provided vauluable information for the implementation of the BRESAER technologies, ensuring compatibility and interoperability with what already exists in the market through standards and regulations.
