Current R&D projects:
FrailSafe (2016): Hypertech has been awarded with a new contract from the European Commission. The FrailSafe project was launched on 1st January 2016 with the ambitious aim to delay frailty by developing a set of measures and tools, together with recommendations to reduce its onset. To achieve these objectives, FrailSafe will combine state of the art information technologies and data mining techniques with high-level expertise in the field of health and ageing. The project is funded by the European Research programme Horizon 2020 and will last three years.
MOEEBIUS (2015): Participation in research and development of H2020 MOEEBIUS project ("Modelling Optimization of Energy Efficiency in Buildings for Urban Sustainability") which is co-funded by the European Commission. The aim of the project is to develop a Holistic Energy Performance Optimization Framework that enhances current (passive and active building elements) modelling approaches and delivers innovative simulation tools which (i) deeply grasp and describe real-life building operation complexities in accurate simulation predictions that significantly reduce the “performance gap” and (ii) enhance the continuous optimization of building energy performance as a means to further mitigate and reduce the identified “performance gap” in real-time or through retrofitting.
OrbEEt (2015): Hypertech Energy Labs have been awarded with a contract from the European Commission with the aim to develop an innovative Building Operational Rating framework, that enables significant energy savings in public office buildings through real time building monitoring, continuous measurement of the impact of different activities on the overall building energy performance and most importantly, timely, relevant and personalized feedback towards triggering sustainable energy behaviours.
NOBEL GRID (2015): Hypertech Energy Labs have been awarded a large R&D contract from the European Commission focusing on the development of innovative tools and novel business models that can facilitate the wide deployment of Smart Grids and Demand Response around Europe. The strategic goal of the NOBELGRID project is to develop, deploy and evaluate advanced tools and ICT services for Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and electric cooperatives, enabling active consumers’ involvement in demand response schemas and addressing demand flexibility as a key parameter on energy markets through new business models for Aggregators and Energy Service Companies (ESCOs).
- OS4ES (2014): Participation in research and development of OS4ES STREP project (“Open System for Energy Management”) which is co-funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Programme / Objective 2013.6.1 “Smart Energy Grids”. The OS4ES project will be coordinated by FGH. It started on July 1st, 2014, its duration will be 36 months and it has a total budget of 4,3M€. The OS4ES project aims to tackle this problem by closing the current information, communication and cooperation gap between DERs and DSOs. It will provide an Open System for Energy Services for Smart Grid actors (DSOs, BRPs, Retailers etc. acting as aggregators) to enable dynamic and automated integration of millions of DERs, including electrical vehicles, private or commercial PV plants, small/medium /large wind power plants as well as privately and commercially owned CHPs, into the electrical grid. This open system with plug & play interfaces based on international standards will provide Smart Grid actors with an ideal means of monitoring and controlling the enormously high numbers of DERs on-the-fly that otherwise would need to be addressed “manually” one by one in a very ineffective and time-consuming way.
- BESOS (2013): Participation in research and development of FP7 - BESOS (Building Energy decision Support systems for Smart cities) project. The strategic goal of BESOS is to enhance existing neighborhoods with decision support system to provide coordinated management of public infrastructures in Smart Cities, and at the same time provide citizens with information to promote sustainability and energy efficiency. The project will target two main stakeholders: the owners of the infrastructure –municipalities – and its operators – ESCOs. The former will be provided with a Business Balance Score Card to audit the SLAs established with the ESCOs against a number of KPIs. The latter will make use of the same tool to analyze new business models and will be also provided with a DSS Cockpit to Monitor and Control information from the infrastructure and establish coordinated energy efficiency strategies.
- ECOBUILDING (2013): Participation in ECOBUILDING project which will research and develop a highly novel energy-saving integrated system that aims to reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions in enterprise buildings by incorporating in the operational phase of a building, a modular, extendable and non-intrusive smart sensor system (consisting of heterogeneous wireless sensors and devices) and will provide an effective mechanism for determining and predicting occupancy in critical building zones towards optimal adaptation of building assets to the overall enterprise energy needs. To this end, the project will deliver an integrated building automation system that will be capable to effectively and efficiently monitor the occupant behavior in order to create intelligent energy profiles (generalized and personalized). Moreover, ECOBUILDING will allow inherently the optimum alignment of building energy needs on occupant operations related to both primary business-related and individual preferences taking into account end-user comfort. The proposed framework will investigate the use of novel algorithms for analyzing and extracting building dynamic behavior through its occupancy in various zones and levels based on the combination of low-cost infrared and other smart metering sensors (e.g. RFID, movement sensors, etc.) that will enable optimal generalized and individual energy profiles based on the investigation of the most important business-related primary activities.
- INERTIA (2012): - Hypertech Energy Labs have been awarded a major Smart Energy Grids R&D contract from the European Commission (Project Acronym: INERTIA), as part of an international consortium of renowned industrial partners like Engineering- Ingegneria Informatica Spa, Enel.si, Hellenic Public Power Coorporation S.A., INDESIT, CNET Svenska AB and prominent research and academic organizations like CERTH-ITI and Fundacion TECNALIA Research & Innovation – INERTIA Integrating Active, Flexible and Responsive Tertiary Prosumers into a Smart Distribution Grid.
- ECOPROWINE (2012): Participation in research and development of the ECOPROWINE ("Life Cycle perspective for Low Impact Winemaking and Application in EU of Eco-innovative Technologies") project, which is co-funded by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and innovation of the European Commision in the framework of the 2012 Eco-Innovation Work Programme. ECOPROWINE is the only, among all awarded projects under the 2012 Eco-Innovation Call for Proposals, that incorporates Greek participation and Hypertech Energy Labs proudly lead Greece’s representation in the 2012 Eco-Innovation programme by concentrating over 80% of the total funding allocated to Greece for 2012. The starting date of the 3-year long project is the 3rd of September, 2012, and its total budget will be approximately 1M €.
