Technology Research and Documentationin Energy

Energy services cannot be deployed without considering existing and future developments affecting an increasing number of stakeholders. Tenants consider energy supply as a given and any change to comfort caused by the service will most likely trigger a response unhinging the service from the dwelling. Moreover, ICT experts, municipal decision makers and the average user do have varying understanding of energy consumption, storage and supply. Depending on residential or non-residential environments or combinations of both, different technologies need to be integrated to achieve good outcomes.

We provide an interactive online ‘Guide for Replication’ summarising the lessons learnt from 5 projects. The guide offers different angles for numerous stakeholders. For instance, technical detail using BPML and UML etc is only offered to experts.

empirica has been assisting in the deployment of ICT services (e.g. TeleWork and eHealth) for over 25 years. Our experience enables us to collect knowledge from and share the insights across a wide range of stakeholders.
