Today we received the great news that IES R&D has been nominated in the “Best Early Stage innovation” category of the European Commission’s Innovation Radar Award 2017. The competition identifies Europe’s top future innovators and their innovations, and is voted for by the public online. Our NewTREND web tool for energy efficient retrofitting has been nominated alongside 9 others in the category. Voting is open until 15 October 2017 so please vote now.

Developed as part of the NewTREND EU H2020 funded project, the Data Manager supports teams in finding the best energy retrofitting strategy for their particular building by guiding them in the data collection phase. In particular, the Data Manager enables on site data collection and information exchange with the rest of the NewTREND platform, which allows evaluation of different design options at both the building and district level, including district schemes and shared renewables, and will present information on available financing schemes and applicable business models.

The development of the NewTREND platform is still ongoing, but it will soon be tested in three real renovation projects in Hungary, Finland and Spain. On the three demo sites, the involvement of the stakeholders in the design process will be evaluated, with specific activities dedicated to inhabitants and users. This validation will ensure the NewTREND platform addresses the needs of the energy retrofit market, after which the team aims to bring it to market as a cloud service for renovation projects.

Sustainable Places Conference
One of the greatest challenges that our societies have ever faced is how to drive energy efficiency at the building, district and city level. Sustainable Places is an International Conference held each year across Europe to gather scientists, researchers, and engineers, from both academia and industry to discuss the latest state-of-the-art advances in this area.

This year, its being held in Anglet, France and IES is involved in a big results workshop for FASUDIR, as well as presenting on work currently in progress on the iURBAN and NewTrend projects. While other projects RESSEEPE and Energy in Time are also hosting in-depth workshops.

The show aims to facilitate innovative solutions for renovation and new construction to ensure the long-term environmental sustainability of ever-growing, densifying urban areas, in a resource-constrained world. Information and Communications Technology (ICT), along with other key research domains (energy, materials, methods and practices, etc.) will be at the core of the conference.

Join us at the show if you’re heading along, or catch up with our post show blog.

All Energy Comes to Town

Posted: April 29, 2016 by , Category:Research & Development

Glasgow (3)
Next week All Energy opens at the SECC for another year and we’re gearing up for all that it will bring. As we’re headquartered in Glasgow it’s great having such a forward looking event going on in our home town. And boy is Glasgow a great host city – not only does it have flourishing Smart City credentials, but it’s also renowned for the warm welcome it gives visitors.

This year our R&D division is particularly active at the show presenting on a number of projects: INDICATE, Energy in Time, EINSTEIN, NewTREND and IMPRESS.

Speaking as part of the Sustainable Cities conference stream in Alsh1, Aidan and Catherine are covering the following:

4 May 2016, 12:45 – 13:45, Quick Fire Technology Update
Towards the development of a virtual 3D city model: Dundalk, Ireland
Aiden Melia, Project Manager, IES

5 May 2016, 14:30 – 16:15, Sustainable and smart cities technology
Making real-time operational control of buildings a reality with 3D simulation
Catherine Conaghan, Senior Project Manager, IES

While Nick is presenting within the Energy Efficiency Quick Fire Seminar Theatre on 5th May.

11:45 | NewTREND: Next Generation district integrated building retrofit, Nick Purshouse, Project Manager, IES
12:00 | IMPRESS: Energy reducing pre-fabricated retrofit panels (BIM) integrated, Nick Purshouse, Project Manager, IES
