After almost 3 years of great collaborations and hard work, the EERAdata project has come to an end last month. The partners presented the EERAdata Decision Support Tool, a socio-economic and LifeCycle Assessment software for energy efficiency interventions on the public building stock during their final events. If you have missed these catch up by reading the key takeaways from the conference and watch the presentation from the training here.
EERAdata has been working with 3 pilot local authorities, the City of Copenhagen in Denmark, the Municipality of Velenje in Slovenia, and the Andalusian Energy Agency in Spain, creating a Decision Support Tool to identify building stock that could be upgraded to be more sustainable and energy efficient. The EERAdata Decision Support Tool includes five different modules to complete an analysis of energy efficiency building potential.
Building and municipal data is prepared and integrated into the DST databases. The energy demand and consumption of one or multiple buildings is calculated and feeds into the life cycle and indoor environment assessment modules. The results are then monetised and further evaluated in the socio-economic assessment module. The final module, the supply side assessment module, then estimates the cost benefits of alternative supply side investments, compared to the previously calculated energy efficiency investments.
