The TeDS4BEE project
The TEDS4BEE project, led by Ferrovial Services in partnership with Amey, FBSerwis and the CI3 as technical coordinator, consists of developing and piloting an EMMOS (Energy Management and Monitoring Operational System) digital service capable of gathering and storing energy consumption data for public buildings. The project is due to run from 2013 to 2015 at 17 buildings in five different countries: Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Ireland, Poland and Serbia
TEDS4BEE aims is to validate and establish EMMOS as a digital service at pilot buildings, assessing data in terms of energy efficiency and savings, defining a business and operations plan to ensure sustainability and scalability beyond the pilot programme, user acceptance via surveys, as well as forecast emissions savings.
As well as Ferrovial Services, FBSerwis, AMEY and the CI3 (Centre for Intelligent Infrastructure Innovation), also involved in the consortium are Madrid Network, Indra, Engineering (Italy) and Ion Solutions (Serbia), Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Pro-Akademia (Poland) and University of Limerick.
