On September 10,
the FEEdBACk consortium was at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (Portugal) to
participate in the “Panel Sessions on EU Projects” of the SEST'19 Conference.
Nilufar Neyestani, from INESC TEC (Portugal), opened the session with a presentation of the FEEdBACk project, its main objectives and demonstration areas.
More technical and specific presentations followed. Miguel Cruz, from DEXMA (Spain), gave a presentation entitled “Data analytics to foster energy efficiency”, followed by Marina Dorokhova, from EPFL (Switzerland) , who talked about “Occupancy forecasting and load disaggregation: an energy efficiency perspective”.
António Coelho, from INESC TEC, presented the theory behind the project's gamification platform and how it intends to change energy-inefficient behaviours. “On Behavioral Change and Comfort Perception in Energy Efficiency Applications”, by Rick Fransman, from TU Delft (Netherlands), ended the presentation cycle.
In the end, the audience had the opportunity to make questions to the speakers.
The SEST conference (09-11 September 2019) aims at providing an opportunity to discuss various engineering challenges of smart energy system design and operation by focusing on advanced methods and practices for designing different components and their integration within the grid.
After Porto (Portugal) and Lippe (Germany), it was Barcelona's turn to launch the gamification platform on its pilot.
On 26 and 27 November, the FEEdBACk consortium met in Neuchâtel (Switzerland) to analyse the Portuguese demonstrator's first results (Porto)
