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.
The National Energy Day was celebrated in Portugal on May 29, 2019. To mark the date, INESC TEC was associated with the Energy Days to organise the Energy Systems of the Future.
On May 21, users from the Lippe demonstrator and others interested in energy efficiency issues were received at the premises of the FEEdBACk partner Kreis Lippe - Zukunftsbüro.
