The Building Energy and Environment Group (BEE Group) collaborates with national and international companies and institutions. As BEE Group, we understand that the goals and challenges we face could be achieved better if companies that are sensitive to the needs of society and researchers who develop cutting-edge innovations work together.

Ongoing projects

Democratizing energy markets through the introduction of innovative flexibility-based demand response tools and novel business and market models for energy cooperatives
FLEXCoop is based on end-to-end Automated Demand-Response (DR) Optimization Framework, which aims to enable the realization of novel business models, allowing energy cooperatives to introduce themselves in energy markets under the role of an aggregator.

The Energy Data Innovation Network
The EDI-net objectives are to increase the capacity of public authorities to use information from short time series energy and water smart meters and information from building users, to encourage more renewable energy, increase energy efficiency and enhance the capacity of public authorities to plan and implement sustainable energy policies.
HORIZON 2020 programme

Reducció Energètica i Flexibilitat en Edificis en Rehabilitació
The project will improve the energy alternatives available for buildings, giving them flexibility with several options for dealing with the generation of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Nearly Zero-Energy Building Strategy 2020
The nZEB-strategies of ZEBRA2020 were based on its market tracking, which built on data from the European construction sector, energy performance certificates, nZEB best-practice and scenarios. The strategy was developed and communicated via bi-directional national and international policies and industry workshops and made accessible via an online “nZEB-tracker” based on the projects results and building-databases

Empowering customers to save energy by informative billing
Within the EMPOWERING project, 4 ambitious utility companies, supported by an international team of university researchers, social scientists and energy experts join forces to empower 344,000 European households to positively manage their energy consumption. This was done by improving the information on energy bills and by offering online tools.

Affirmative Integrated Energy Design Action
The AIDA project carried out actions to develop and promote nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEBs) in the municipal energy roadmaps and in the Sustainable Action Plans (SEAPs). The project involved a large number of territories and municipalities joining 4.936 signatures that commited to implement SEAPs with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions.

Semantic Tools for Carbon Reduction in Urban Planning
SEMANCO helped reduce CO2 emissions by integrating energy use information in neighbourhoods, cities and regions. It provided architects, engineers, building managers, local administrators, citizens and policy makers with tools to help them make informed decisions about how to reduce CO2 emissions in cities.
