COLLECTiEF virtual kick-off

COLLECTiEF kick-off meeting took place on 7-8 June 2021. 14 partners from six European countries met online to officially launch our 4-years project aiming at enhancing smartness levels and energy flexibility in the European building stock.

COLLECTiEF responds to the urgent need to review existing buildings’ energy strategies and make them more sustainable and climate-resilient. Our consortium will enhance, implement, test, and evaluate an interoperable and scalable energy management system based on Collective Intelligence (CI) that will be integrated into existing buildings and urban energy systems aiming to reduce installation cost, data transfer, and computational power while increasing data security, energy flexibility, and climate resilience.

By improving energy performance in buildings, the COLLECTiEF project is contributing to the energy and climate goals set by the Paris Agreement and the "Clean Energy for all European" package, including the Communication "Accelerating Clean Energy Innovation" (COM (2016) 736) and the Strategic Energy Technology Plan priorities.

Coordinated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the COLLECTiEF brings together innovative SMEs, academic institutions, building owners, and energy providers. Our partners are: Lund University (Sweden), The Cyprus Institute (Cyprus), Energy@Work (Italy), R2M Solution SRL (Italy), EM Systemer AS (Norway), NODA Intelligent Systems AB (Sweden), Geonardo Environmental Technologies Ltd. (Hungary), Scientific and Technical Center for Building (France), Technologies Design and Materials European Research Centre (Italy), LSI Lastem (Italy), Ålesund Municipality (Norway), Teicos UE SRL (Italy), Virtual Manufacturing AB (Sweden).
