Start and end dates: 
January, 2013 to December, 2016
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
ICT is becoming a key factor to enhance energy optimization in smart cities. Thanks to ICT it is possible to access real-time information about building environmental characteristics and energy consumption. At district level, information about district heating and cooling and the electricity grid can be accessed. Middleware technologies enable a coming interface to monitor and control devices such that these heterogeneous sources of information can be put together in a centralized decision system. Furthermore, advancements in 3D modeling, visualization and interaction technologies enable user profiling and real-time feedback to promote energy efficient behaviors.
