Das Facility Management ist eine anspruchsvolle Managementaufgabe, die meist nicht mehr von Gebäudeeigentümerorganisation sondern von speziellen Dienstleistern ausgeübt wird. Dabei werden alle drei Dimensionen der Nachhaltigkeit berührt: Ökonomie (z.B. Betriebskosten und gesteigertes Output der Beschäftigten), Ökologie (z.B. Ressourceneffizienz und Emissionen) und der soziokulturelle Bereich (z.B. Nutzerkomfort).

The Horizon 2020 funded Save at Work project aims to help public buildings reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions. A minimum of 9000 employees in at least 180 public office buildings (administrative buildings - municipal/regional or federal state operated) from nine countries will compete in a year-long energy saving contest to achieve the highest energy savings possible compared to the previous year.

The FP7 funded TRIBUTE (Take the energy bill back to the promised building performance) is a large-scale integrating project aimed at minimizing the gap between computed and measured energy performances through the improvement of the predictive capability of a state-of-the-art commercial Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS). For existing buildings, measurement and verification techniques will be developed and deployed to connect the BEPS model in real time to the pivotal wireless sensing and control systems of a monitored building.
