Collective Intelligence for Energy Flexibility

Project: Research

Project Details


Sustainable and resilient urban energy solutions are essential to address climate change adaptation demands. With this in mind, the EU-funded COLLECTiEF project brought together 14 partners from six European countries to enhance the energy flexibility on both supply and demand sides. The consortium will implement and evaluate an interoperable energy management system based on collective intelligence. This will be integrated into existing building and urban energy systems aiming to reduce installation cost, data transfer and computational power. It will be installed in 13 buildings and 1 living laboratory at pilot sites in Cyprus, France, Italy and Norway. The findings will be used to formulate a business model for energy services.
We, at Lund University, are the Scientific Coordinator of the project and WP2 leader, which is about algorithm training and reinforcement for the COLLECTiEF System. We also contribute is several other WPs of the project.
