Nimbus IoT Driven Energy Management Platform nominated for SEAI Award


Award Finalist

28th September 2018: The Nimbus Centre at Cork Institute of Technology is delighted to have been announced as a finalist in the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s (SEAI) Energy Awards which encourage and reward excellence in energy management. 32 organisations across nine categories have made it through to the gala Awards ceremony on 25 October where winners will be named. The announcement is a recognition of the work and effort Cork Institute of Technology has put in and underlines our commitment to a sustainable model for the benefit of our environment and our community.

The Project

Working as part of an EU H2020 project known as TOPAs (Tools for Continuous Building Performance Auditing, grant agreement No 676760) the Nimbus research team developed a context driven framework and tool which provides an integrated view of relevant performance metrics at all levels from device, zone, building and blocks of buildings supporting users with the highest knowledge empowerment to ensure sustained energy efficiency gains. We have carried out significant work by:

  • Using the Internet of Things to better understanding the link between occupant behaviour and energy wastage.
  • Achieve total primary energy consumption savings in the region of 24% compared to measured baseline at CIT.
  • Develop tools that utilise building data to provide insight, decision support and continuous energy auditing for building managers

Michael Coughlan, Buildings and Estates Office of Cork Institute of Technology said:

“As a public body, CIT is committed to a 33% improvement in our energy efficiency as we head towards 2020, by working closely with the research team in Nimbus the CIT energy team are able to get a clear insight into impact of energy efficiency measures that are put in place and help educate occupants and energy practitioners on energy management and responsibility through real world demonstration of novel approaches.”

Commenting on the competition, Jim Gannon, Chief Executive, SEAI said:

“Each year the SEAI Energy Awards showcase excellence in sustainable energy. We all have a say in what our energy future will look like and we all have a responsibility to act. The Awards finalists are leading the way in this action and are demonstrating how other organisations can push the boundaries of more sustainable energy generation and energy efficiency activities. I commend them on their significant achievements.”

The Awards are supported by category sponsors Enprova and Gas Networks Ireland.
