Boosting Energy Efficiency in the Zlín Region through Smart Energy Management

EAZK is boosting Energy Efficiency in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic, through Smart Energy Management via the Interreg Central Europe project BOOSTEE-CE.

Boosting Energy Efficiency in the Zlín Region through Smart Energy Management

Energy efficiency in public buildings is among the main tasks for the Energetická agentura Zlínského kraje, EAZK. By joining the international project BOOSTEE-CE, a new and innovative approach in this field will be implemented in the Zlín Region. Indeed, this project will develop and implement technical solutions, strategies, management approaches & financing schemes to achieve higher Energy Efficiency (EE) in public buildings.

6 public buildings of the Zlín Region are included as pilot project buildings of the action, including the construction of a new hospital with nearly zero energy demand standards, and the modernisation of 5 school buildings.

Higher energy efficiency in public buildings will be achieved through transnational cooperation and by using geospatial data, smart energy management tools and energy audits in order to facilitate the implementation of Energy efficient buildings.

EAZK will provide technical support in all phases of the implementation, including the introduction or improvement of existing energy management, staff training and development of programming tools to evaluate data outputs, financial analysis and management of the investment.

The technical activities of BOOSTEE-CE will deliver a web-based platform (named OnePlace), founded on 3D building models and energy information. OnePlace will be composed of 4 plug-and-play modules: 3D Energy Management System (EMS), Energy Efficient Cities, Living Energy Marketplace and Financing Energy Efficiency.
