  • Abstract:
    • Dimmer (District Information Modeling and Management for Energy Reduction): Webservice oriented, open platform with capabilies of real-time district level data processing  and visualization.
    • ICT is recognized as being a key player against climate change: Pervasive sensors and actuators can efficiently control the whole energy chain (Smart Thermal/Electricity Grid). On the other side, advances on 3D modeling, visualization and interaction technologies enable user profiling and real-time feedback to promote energy efficient behaviors. To unlock the potentiality of these technologies, the DIMMER project focuses on:
      • Interoperability of district energy production/consumption, environmental conditions and user feedback data;
      • Exploitation of effective visual and web-based interfaces to provide pervasive and real-time feedback about energy impact of user behaviors;
      • Enabling new business models for energy traders and prosumers exploiting user energy profiling;
      • Integration of Building Information Models (BIM) with real-time data and their extension at the district level.
