Webinar Recording: Smart solutions to accelerate the digital transformation of buildings

On Tuesday, February 13, BUILD UP hosted a webinar organised by the BuildON and SMARTeeSTORY projects on ‘Smart solutions to accelerate the digital transformation of buildings’. During the event, project partners from BuildON and SMARTeeSTORY shared their vision on the role of digitalisation in the decarbonisation of buildings.

The webinar was structured into three sessions. During the introduction, Sofía Mulero from CARTIF stated that ‘the main scope of the projects is to contribute to the enhancement of green and smart buildings, in which users have a great role. It is important to provide user-friendly solutions that support users in taking decisions’.

The first session, ‘BuildON introduction, Smart Transformer Toolbox, validation activities’, delved into the key aspects of the project. Sofía Mulero from CARTIF, and Nikos Dimitropoulos, from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) explained the relevant role that BuildON plays in providing highly replicable solutions to equip buildings with intelligent capabilities.

The second session, ‘SMARTeeSTORY Introduction, Key expected results, pilots’, gave an overview of the project. Heidi Percuoco and Matteo Porta, from RINA-C, shared their perspectives related to the optimization of the building’s energy performance. Heidi Percuoco highlighted that ‘SMARTeeSTORY automatically detect building users and inform the optimization control servicers on their specific references’, and Matteo Porta made emphasis in the need of reliable data.

The centrality of users in smart building solution

The final session, ‘Smart buildings, user interaction and engagement’, saw Alessandra Luna from TU Delft and Chiara Fonio from ICONS focusing on how smart building solutions are present in everyday activities and the relevance to engage users to ensure a user-driven design of smart buildings.

The webinar ended with a Q&A session moderated by BUILD UP where the speakers answered to the challenges encountered during the 8 months that the project is already running.
