We will provide a complete set of technical documentation and manuals for the installation and use of the applications. Quick-installation guides, short tutorials and hands-on videos will be provided.

Final Infrastructure Software

The final release of the infrastructure software will be described and fully documented. All tasks will present their final result of a complete, integrated system. An emphasis will be given on the work conducted since the previous deliverable and changes to the initial design will be justified.

Initial Infrastructure Software

Initial Infrastructure Software (Month 18) – The initial release of the infrastructure will be described, this will include an overview over the software architecture, the state of the unified data acquisition framework (T2.1), the data profiling service (T2.2) a description of the “microscopic” level of the recommendation system (T2.3) and first results on automatic recommendations such as the developed visualizations (T2.4). Implementation decisions will be set in relation to the design produced in D1.1. The deliverable will point out the interfacing of the different components within WP2 and, where relevant, to WP3 and project the further work for the final version of the software.

Final Trial Documentation

For each trial, the complete experimental process will be described in detail. The deliverable will give a chronological description of all actions and corresponding data regarding energy efficiency, indoor environmental qualities, use of applications, social activities and user feedback.

Sustainability Plan & Innovation Roadmap

As the GAIA project progresses there are bound to be new and exciting forms of knowledge that will need to be managed among the partners. The Management Board will deliver its final assessment of knowledge gained, as well as determine the extent to which the outcomes may be exploited for future use or development.

First year report on Dissemination Activities

Packages of prepared course materials will be available for use within classrooms across Europe in order for teachers to use our tools and techniques within their classrooms to promote the changing of students energy usage behaviors. We will also monitor the activity and usage of these materials not only for our project partners, but also other institutions as well as promote the establishment of a long-lasting group of entities that are interested in these goals.

Second year report on Network of Stakeholders & Dissemination Activities

Packages of prepared course materials will be available for use within classrooms across Europe in order for teachers to use our tools and techniques within their classrooms to promote the changing of students energy usage behaviors. We will also monitor the activity and usage of these materials not only for our project partners, but also other institutions as well as promote the establishment of a long-lasting group of entities that are interested in these goals.

Final Pedagogical and Education Design

Final Pedagogical and Education Design (Month 24) – This deliverable will provide the basic pedagogical requirements for designing the GAIA educational approach. It will focus on identifying, for each country involved, a number of requirements: (a) the particular learners/audiences (school, university) targeted by the GAIA project and their pedagogical needs in each country; (b) the relevant topics/areas of the school curriculum in each country for the science, energy saving and environmental protection topics/areas that are addressed to the target audiences; (c) a preliminary list of intended learning objectives and outcomes that could be covered from the designed games; and (d) a preliminary list of the already existing use-cases that are applied in schools around the EU and in the GAIA participating countries in particular. This deliverable will also offer the outcomes of the design process, carried out for T1.2, in the form of specific energy efficiency scenarios (e.g., heating, electricity, micro-generation, transportation, and the collaborative use of resources, e.g., collaborative cooking) that educate the students/learners on smart energy consumption, and will provide the learners with all the tools needed to act as regulators of their energy consumption. It will also include characteristics that were taken into consideration for the design of the serious games/scenarios, such as the elements of social networking between different schools - e.g., comparison of energy consumption between different schools, game-based learning and use of ICT. This deliverable will also cover the development of the social media, apps and profiles. The most important of these is expected to be the GAIA Facebook app. These will be built according to the requirements collected for T1.2. It will also design the GAIA mobile app that is to be made accessible via mobile phones and tablets. The mobile app will be used during the experimentation events, and will be revisited and updated accordingly based on the evaluation process findings. Finally, it will develop handbooks for the implementation of the GAIA educational scenarios, and the use of the mobile and social apps. A working version will be developed that will be delivered to be tested during the projects experimentation activities. Based on the evaluation and validation results, a final version will be produced for public adoption and use, available in at least 4 languages (English, Italian, Greek and Swedish).

GAIA Design

This deliverable will summarize the work of task T1.1 by describing the trial sites, the buildings, their building services and existing metering technologies. A unified set of KPIs with precise formulas will be defined. The deliverable will describe the necessary metering technology including interfaces to the GAIA data platform. For each trial, the deliverable will describe all necessary additional sensors and metering devices that might have to be installed. Within the project, the deliverable will serve as a guideline for the technical implementation of the trials in T4.1 and as a controlling mechanism for the validation of the trials in T4.4.

Initial Trial Documentation

The deliverable will compile a general design for all trials and detailed designs for all individual trials set up ready to use. The deliverable builds on the guideline created in WP1 by adding documentations of all technical installations, GAIA applications, workshops and other relevant activities. As a basis of evaluation for all KPIs, the deliverable will document historic data and data of reference buildings for the trials.

Trial & Educational Evaluation

The overall results of all trials will be compiled in this deliverable. It will give a short description of all trials, a summary of the major findings of each trial and the overall technical, ecologic, socio-economic and educational evaluation of each trial as well as a cross evaluation of all trials.

Project Handbook, Quality Plan and Risk Management

This document will include a list of rules for everyday activities of the project, communication and file tools, email lists, formal file naming and quality plan. It will also include a Risk Management considering potential scientific, technical and management risks, their severity and the respective consistency plan.

Final report on Network of Stakeholders and Dissemination activities

Packages of prepared course materials will be available for use within classrooms across Europe in order for teachers to use our tools and techniques within their classrooms to promote the changing of students energy usage behaviors. We will also monitor the activity and usage of these materials not only for our project partners, but also other institutions as well as promote the establishment of a long-lasting group of entities that are interested in these goals.

Public website

A portal website will serve as both a repository and clearinghouse for information that has been gathered, as well as for data that has been shared. Additionally, the website will serve as the starting point for all of our dissemination activities via social networks.

Private repository and Mailing Lists

This will be email lists for the project needs. One email list per WP will be created; yet, during the project lifecycle, additional email reflectors may be created/or merged for the efficient consortium communication. A private repository will be setup for project file and source code exchange purposes.
