DENiM Requirements & Architectural Approach report sent to External Expert Advisory Board (EEAB)

A key aspect of the DENiM project is engaging with relevant stakeholders to ensure the project is on the right trajectory from a scientific, industrial and impact perspective. To support this, the project has invited a number of external experts from various background (e.g. Industry4.0, digital technologies, energy management, policy and standardisation) to engage and provide guidance on the project activities. The initial engagement with the DENiM EEAB has been very positive and fruitful for the project. They have helped re-enforce the DENiM concept and inform the requirements and architectural specification of the DENiM digital intelligence platform. The project have…

Holistic Modeling for Continuous Performance Assessment

Holistic Modeling for Continuous Performance Assessment started in April 2021 and continues up to year 2024. This work provides energy-centric modeling-related information, capabilities, and tools for the implementation needs of the DENiM platform. So far, the main progress has been made in the detailed planning of tasks and in gathering all relevant information and data from the modelling point of view. During the first year of the project, both the development of data quality service and energy modelling principles have been in progress. Integration of the quality component into the DENiM interoperability manager has been completed and demonstrated. In addition, the…

Requirements Specification for Collaborative Energy Management

The work on definition and collection of Requirements Specification for Collaborative Energy Management started on the beginning of the DENiM project in November 2020 and continued up to July 2021. The core objective of this work package was to inform the project foundations for technical development. This included a detailed stakeholder analysis, review of best practices and the identification of domain-specific requirements and reference scenarios for DENiM (Deliverable D3.1, Public).The initial design and specification of a digital maturity tool was also completed focusing on the industry sectors represented by the DENiM pilot sites with an emphasis on supporting energy efficiency.…

First workshops with the pilots

A first round of workshops with the pilots has been held starting April 13th, 2021. The main objective of the workshops was to start setting the scene for the environmental and cost analysis framework on the top of which the DENIM platform will rely for energy oriented optimisation. The workshops featured 2 moments: the first one dedicated to the introduction of the pilot as well as the presentation of the theoretical background of LCA and LCC methodologies; the second one focused on the discussion of the framing conditions that helped understanding pilots' LCA-LCC current situation, and highlight the gaps to…
