Start and end dates: 
January, 2012 to December, 2015
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
COOPERaTE will develop an open, scalable neighbourhood service and management platform that integrates local monitoring and control functions with a cloud based service platform for the delivery of innovative energy management, security and other services in order to progress towards energy positive neighbourhoods and achieving 2020 targets. COOPERaTE will carry out a substantial validation of the concepts in two validation sites, the Bouygues Challenger campus and the CIT Bishopstown campus.In doing so, COOPERaTE addresses the challenges of the call by developing management and control systems, and decision-support systems addressing the dynamics of energy supply and demand in neighbourhoods. COOPERaTE will optimise the use of energy beyond the buildings, include the integration of renewable energy sources and the connection to the electricity distribution grid, and will consider appropriate business models.
