Hit 2 GAP: Highly Innovative building control Tools Tackling the energy performance gap

The actual energy consumption of buildings in Europe often significantly exceeds the expected energy requirements. This gap in energy performance can arise from construction errors or from differences between the way a building was intended to be used and how it is actually used.
An energy management platform could help to reduce this energy gap – and this will be easier thanks to a new and innovative energy reporting platform.

To create a new energy reporting platform, the HIT2GAP project will deliver:
1. A generic information platform with protocols for communication with devices and user interfaces
2. Building energy modelling, to establish energy consumption benchmarks
3. A variety of tailored modules to inform users, energy managers and engineers.
