Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SEAS (Smart Energy Automation System - advanced artificial intelligence and predictive systems for energy optimization and savings in all buildings / infrastructures)
Reporting period: 2018-08-01 to 2018-11-30
Energy efficiency has huge economic, social, and environmental impact, thus it is one of the cornerstones of EU Energy Policy and it is closely linked to its three main pillars: security, sustainability and competitiveness. In this context, the EU published in 2012 an Energy Efficiency Directive that established a set of binding measures to help Europe reach its 20% energy efficiency target by 2020. This target was revised in 2016 including a new 30% energy efficiency target for 2030. However, the implementation of the 2012 Directive is behind schedule and the 2020 target saving is likely to be missed at the EU level.
Akse delivers energy management and automation solutions supporting industrial, commercial and residential users to achieve their energy efficiency goals. The environmental benefits of AKSE solution are obvious; citizens, enterprises and industries will be able to reduce their energy consumption, use more efficiently renewable energy sources, and optimize energy-related operations, thus eliminating their carbon footprint.
Akse will face next steps in order to reach TRL 9 with the aim of successful SEAS commercialization.
