Project details



Active Managed Buildings with Energy Performance Contracting

Start date: 01.06.2019

Duration: 36 months

Coordinator: VITO

Budget: 2 M€


The project aims at extending the concept of Energy Performance Contracting to Active Buildings and making it available and attractive to a wider range of buildings. AmBIENCe will provide new concepts and business models for performance guarantees of Active Buildings, combining savings from energy efficiency measures with additional savings and earnings resulting from the active control of assets leveraging for instance price based incentive contracts (Implicit Demand Response). The willingness to invest in additional sensorisation, ICT an IoT will be increased by offering adjacent other-than- energy services, e.g. related to comfort, security or maintenance.
