Knowledge-based energy management for public buildings through holistic information modeling and 3D visualization

KnoHolEM

Project name: Knowledge-based energy management for public buildings through holistic information modeling and 3D visualization (KnoHolEM)

 

Key words: knowledge-based energy management, functional modelling, ontologies

 

Objectives:

The KnoholEM main objective is to improve energy efficiency in public buildings trough progressive and intelligent knowledge modeling approach able to respond to changes in building configuration and use.The project methodology takes into account and overcome challenges related to high variety of dynamic factors with complex interactions and integration of new standards (IFC). The main project innovations are related to an extended alignment with standards (IFC-OWL mapping, CAD/IFC to OWL), creation of an intelligent knowledge base balanced by several ontologies as heart of the system architecture; 3D visualization of the building environment for the final user and an automated ontology population concept that go behind the state of the art technologies of similar EU projects. 

 

General system architecture:

 

 

 

Expected outcome and benefits:

  • Knowledge-based development of an intelligent energy management solution to support interoperability between heterogeneous systems and assisted by algorithms for energy consumption optimization and rationalization
  • Support of real-time intelligent energ monitoring of buildings through smart metering
  • Simulation and visually-supported validation of these intelligent energy management solutions and configurations
  • Closed-loop control of buildings
  • up to 30% reduction of energy costs
