Belfast Met to present in Brussels -Energy Week 2019

2018 - Day 3 - Decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sector- coupling efficency and renewables with security of heat supply-7

Belfast Met energy projects win European Energy Week Place

Double win for Belfast Met – The Belfast Met led GenComm and BIMcert projects have both been selected to present  in Brussels in June at the European Energy Week event.

With these two international projects Belfast Met are helping to shape Europe’s energy future and now on the biggest stage of all Belfast Met staff can showcase their projects.

The Policy Conference in Energy Week, 18-20 June, 2019 is the biggest European conference dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe.  The conference takes place in Brussels Schuman district at the European Commission’s Charlemagne building and the Residence Palace. This week in Brussels is the largest event dedicated to initiatives that support the European energy transition.

EU Sustainable Energy Week was launched in 2006 and is organised by the European Commission. Participants can build new connections and meet stakeholders who are promoting energy efficiency and renewable energies.

GenComm is a £9.39 million project which aims to answer the energy sustainability challenges facing remote communities in North West Europe. GenComm will deliver three pilot facilities , one fuelled by solar power in Germany, one by wind power in Co Antrim and one by bioenergy in Scotland to measure their ability to produce and store hydrogen. Its viability as a sustainable energy solution for heat, power and fuel will be examined.

BIMcert is a European wide project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research programme. The project aims to provide a training and qualification scheme for the skills required to support the implementation of BIM (Building Information Modelling) across the construction chain. BIM offers the opportunity for improved efficiencies for the construction industry in energy, materials and time.

Energy Week in Brussels will bring together public authorities, energy agencies, industry associations, companies, and civil society organisations. Past speakers have come from city councils, the European institutions, private companies, research organisations, citizen groups and NGOs. Participants can learn about successful policies to meet the EU’s energy and climate goals.

As well as having a three-day stand at Energy Week the Belfast Met team will also be able to build contacts in the ‘Networking Village’ area where participants can exchange ideas on policies, showcasing the talents of Belfast and Northern Ireland.

Paul Mc Cormack, Belfast Met’s GenComm Programme Manager welcomed the news of securing a place during Energy Week, saying:

“All of the GenComm and BIMcert teams are delighted with the news that we have been chosen to take the international platform in Brussels  to showcase our highly innovative work. We are on the cusp of a low carbon economy and GenComm is pioneering new energy models. The current energy model for Europe is not fit for purpose. Our GenComm project helps us all move in the right direction. Likewise with the BIMcert project we are taking digital design and energy efficiency in construction to a new level. Energy efficiency is a key directive from Europes side and we are pioneers in this field. This honour recognises the innovative strength of the projects, the fantastic talent in the project teams and importantly the vision and skills of the wider Belfast Met team”

BIMalliance

The Alliance of BIMcert, BIMplement, Net-UBIEP and BIMEET

Minimising the carbon footprint of energy use in construction – when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!

The four BIM projects BIMcert, BIMplement, Net-UBIEP and BIMEET are collaborating under the title BIMalliance to explore areas of mutual opportunity and to minimise the energy footprint in construction.

1.1 Focus of work

  1. Energy targets, energy savings – Energy week presentation
  2. Dissemination and communication
  3. Accreditation and certification – utilise databases
  4. Exploitation
  5. Future Collaborative opportunities

1. Energy targets, energy savings : To determine position of BIM in European Energy and Climate Roadmaps beyond 2020;  to explore fields of coordination and support actions, research and innovation, as well as potential funding sources for the activities,

2. Dissemination and communication: – Establishing a common communication and collaboration platform of the 4 projects (e.g., linking their web pages; sharing information about the Alliance common work, organization of joint events, etc.), in order to provide better informing and multiple use of individual  projects’ stakeholders and followers.

3. Accreditation and certification – To initiate a common pan-European recognized certification scheme of BIM and EE skills in AEC industry  (buildingSMART option to be considered)

 4. Exploitation of results – to prepare and distribute a survey via the common platform / united web pages / for assessment of the progress on BIM maturity and acceptance, as a result of the activities of the 4 projects; to develop a common report with guidelines for future actions. fffffff
