The MODERATE project is off to a strong start with a productive kick-off meeting that took place on 21 & 22 June. The meeting was hosted by project coordinator Eurac Research bringing together the 17 partners at the NOI Techpark in Bolzano (Italy) with some partners having joined online.
With the uptake of building monitoring & control systems there has been a rising complexity and variety of building performance data, creating the need for improved interoperability for different stakeholders to be able to share and use each other’s data. For this purpose, MODERATE is aiming to create an open marketplace for building data where building stakeholders – such as policymakers, building owners, facility managers, service companies – will be able to openly share their data, obtain insights and facilitate their decision-making process in line with privacy regulations like the GDPR. By doing this the project aims to connect data producers with researchers, developers and other stakeholders.
With the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) the platform will enable users to analyse real-time data from various building systems and provide information on different indicators of the performance of a building.
During the meeting the partners discussed, besides the overall project management, the datasets that are available among the consortium with a view on how to make them interoperable and a workshop about data analytics on how industry can meet research through MODERATE’s open datasets.
