Deutschland hat sich auf den Weg gemacht, sein Energiesystem auf erneuerbare Energien umzustellen. Damit die Energiewende gelingt, muss die Energienachfrage flexibler und der Energieverbrauch gesenkt werden. Hierbei können smarte Gebäude einen wesentlichen Beitrag leisten: Sie ermöglichen nicht nur die gebäudenahe und damit dezentrale Produktion von erneuerbarer Energie, sondern erlauben es auch, Energie zu speichern, Energienachfrage zu verschieben oder – dank effizienter Heizsysteme und gut gedämmter Gebäudehüllen – Energie einzusparen.

EDI-Net, a Horizon 2020 project, assists in building cities' and regions' capacity to more effectively implement sustainable energy policies. Therefore it is analysing short time series metered energy and water data from public buildings, from renewable energy systems and from building energy management systems (BEMNS) in order to reduce energy consumption and to save money.

In November, BUILD UP visited the Intelligent Buildings fair during the European Utility Week 2016. Many companies put their smart and intelligent technologies on display. Will these benefit energy efficiency in buildings?     7 December 2016   ‘My grandparents used to grow food in their own garden. I think we are going back to this. And we will generate our own energy, too’, says Boyan, an ambitious graduate visiting the European Utility Week, looking ahead to what future homes will be like.
