Parametric, environmental, and smart solutions for building retrofitting

This event is the fourth of a series of conferences on smart building issues, climate-free-running building design, and operational solutions.
It will present different approaches and experiences related to building retrofitting solutions, focusing on energy efficiency aspects, including new simulation and optimisation digital platforms supporting professionals and end users in defining design options, including cost optimal and LCA analyses, and in potentially analysing post-intervention impacts.
The role of data and ICT aspects are also treated during the event.

The PRELUDE project (Prescient building Operation utilising Real-Time data for Energy Dynamic Optimization) aims to support advanced innovative, smart, low-cost solutions supporting intelligent buildings and proactive optimisation services. Among the others, the project pursues the minimisation of energy uses, the maximisation of self-consumption and renewable sources balance, and the improvement of comfort conditions supporting the maximisation of free-running building potentials.
