Upgrading smartness of existing buildings through innovations for legacy equipment

The aspiration of PHOENIX project is to change the role of buildings from unorganized energy consumers to active agents orchestrating and optimizing their energy consumption, production and storage, with the goal of increasing energy performance, maximizing occupants’ benefit, and facilitating grid operation.

Our mission is to design a portfolio of ICT solutions covering all aspects

Data analytics & services for both building users & energy utilities

PHOENIX will design a portfolio of ICT solutions covering all aspects from hardware and software upgrades needed in legacy equipment and optimal deployment of sensors, to data analytics and services for both building users and energy utilities. PHOENIX will take advantage of artificial intelligence technologies, as well as edge/cloud computing methods, to provide the highest level of smartness to existing buildings. These improvements will translate in human-centric new services for building users and an improvement on both execution of grid operations and data sharing.
