Deep Integrations with new mechanisms to offer business opportunities

The PHOENIX architecture will be developed with open & secure Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to enable deep integration of existing building systems, the incorporation of new mechanisms or tools by third parties as well as the development of new services and business opportunities between multiple actors. The architecture will be based on standardised protocols (e.g. HTTPS) for a secure data exchange made up of trusted partners.

Interoperable architecture with advanced capacity

Develop user-friendly services for inexpert users (i.e. building owners and occupants) to facilitate the easy use as well as to maximize the occupants comfort.

Cost-effective Principle

PHOENIX will develop user-friendly services for inexpert users (i.e. building owners and occupants) to facilitate the easy use as well as to maximize the occupants comfort. Moreover, PHOENIX services will be implemented based on a cost-effective principle to minimize the costs of installation and maintenance as well as to maximize the energy savings.
Ultimate tool

One dashboard. Unlimited websites. Any CMS or platform.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

Information Flow

The PHOENIX project proposes an architecture divided into five horizontal layers and a security vertical layer to develop, integrate and deploy a secure interoperable ecosystem for heterogeneous Energy Efficiency in Buildings scenarios as well as the interactions with non-technical end-users and stakeholders.

High level conceptual concept assets

The PHOENIX architecture is using a high-level conceptual design based on the flow of generating data, extraction of information and knowledge from the building assets, provision of a set of data analysis to the services and business opportunities through the following layers:
Business layer represents the point of views and the interactions with the end-users (e.g. building users/managers) and stakeholders (e.g. ESCO, Aggregators, etc.) based on an active democratic participation.
Function layer includes multiple smart cost-effective services offered to the end users to optimize the energy saving, the occupants’ satisfaction, the overall performance of the buildings and the grid operations.
Knowledge layer enables modular tools for creating building knowledge, based on homogenized data through data processing and analytic to upgrade the smartness of the buildings.
Integration layer provides the mechanisms for the remote control and data monitoring from different building equipment, systems and external data sources (i.e. weather predictions) with heterogeneous protocols and technologies
Asset layer consists of heterogeneous legacy equipment and systems already deployed in the buildings that must be integrated and managed intelligently.
Vertical protection layer provides the techniques and protocols to ensure the security, privacy and trust of the data exchange in all the horizontal layers.
