Nimbus Centre Role
CIT are leading the Scientific & Technical Management for the TOPAs project. From a research perspective, CIT will lead WP4 “Distributed Energy Management” focusing on the development of energy management approaches at building and district level. This involves the development of a novel approach to distributed model predictive control to provide a scalable solution for bridging the gap between predicted and actual energy usage.
In addition, CIT will extend and develop tools and services to support continuous performance monitoring including services to support and validate occupancy modelling, wireless sensor infrastructure design for monitoring and visualisation tools for sustained energy savings. Finally, the CIT campus will be leveraged for the demonstration and validation of the TOPAs solution.
