Report on energetic integration of the E2VENT system with the building energy systems

Analysis of the effective energetic integration of the retrofitting system with actually existing buildings. It will include energy consumption, HVAC systems and electricity for lighting services.

Report on policy workshops

Workshop enables participants to generate an understanding of the EU policy environment and equip them with the appropriate skills to effectively communicate their science to the policy making process.

Preliminary market assessment

Preliminary market analysis will be the initial glimpse into the overall environment to determine the likelihood of success for the new business.

Final Exploitation workshop and Exploitation plan

Development of an appropriate strategy for the exploitation and protection of the project results. The first step for setting up a proper exploitation strategy will involve the precise identification of exploitable processes, products and knowledge, developed within the project.

3rd year progress report, including gender equity actions

In the third year report, the developments will be presented, especially the first prototype which will have been assembled, tested. Also, the two pilot sites will be presented. A progress report will show the advancement of the project compared to the planning.

Initial Exploitation workshop

Annual exploitation workshops will provide the whole consortium each year with a set of exploitation support services will be carried out, the goals will be to detect the most promising results and to obtain agreement on the elements to go into the exploitation action plan.

Report on dissemination activities

Dissemination report will sumarize the public activities performed within the whole project duration to ensure maximum visibility of the project in the international scale.

Project description, leaflet and presentations

The development of key messages will results in a one-page description of the project to be used in publications and articles. A leaflet in English will be designed and printed. In addition, a standard project PPT presentation will be produced using the key messages. This presentation will be updated after each progress meeting. All marketing materials will refer to the project website, which will be the all-embracing information source, and will be kept up to date on a regular basis.

Website design and continuous updates

Project website will be set up in the early stage of the project for both consortium members and public access. The website will be actively maintained during the project period.

Monitoring and assessment of the buildings before retrofitting

The deliverable 6.1 will include the planning to measure through the monitoring plan the performance of the two buildings during one year, including the data acquisition system. Some parameters that will be measured are electricity, gas consumption and indoor environment quality parameters. It will be taking into account the Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol for verifying the results of energy efficiency and renewable energy as well as the data structure required by the Concerto database

Installation and commissioning of the system in both demonstrators

The deliverable 6.3 will include the planning to the installation of the systems and a detailed description of each step carried out. It will include the particular specification in cases, Spanish and Poland demo. This Deliverable also will include the planning and the commissioning and the results of each step.
