Building Energy Monitoring and Simulation - ULiège
Buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy consumption in industrialized countries. Research activities are necessary both at building design and operation levels and have to target a better integration of renewables.
BEMS is active in and developing expertise in the following fields:
Rational use of energy
Building Energy Management
Verification of the Energy Performance of Buildings
•Commissioning of HVAC installations
Regulatory methods and standards
Climatic chamber tests
Management and control of solar buildings
Solar energy storage
The relationship between energy and the environment
The environmental impact of energy solutions
Our team is specialized in the monitoring and dynamic modeling of buildings and systems.
Knowledge & Skills
Our team has developed expertise in the field of smart grids, particularly involving two major projects the team has worked on or is currently working on:
We have expertise in smart networks, problems related to intermittent renewable energy production, adjustable loads, flexibilization, heating systems (heat pumps, CHP) that allow for flexible operations with or without energy storage in the building or using traditional storage solutions.
Our team also supervises Master’s theses on the topic of smart grids.
