Intelligent Management System to integrate and control energy generation, consumption and exchange for European Sport and Recreation Buildings (SPORTE2)
Start date: Sep 1, 2010, End date: Aug 31, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The European Sport and Recreation Building Stock accounts for approximately 1,5 Million buildings or 8% of the overall building stock. These facilities are unique by their physical nature, their energy consumption profiles, the usage patterns of people inside, ownership, and comfort requirements. SPORTE2 aims to manage and optimize the triple dimensions of energy flows (generation, grid exchange, and consumption) in Sport and Recreation Buildings by developing a new scalable and modular BMS based on smart metering, integrated control, optimal decision making, and multi-facility management. This tool will enable a new relationship and business model structure between facility managers and power providers. The SPORTE2 modules will be applicable to both new and existing structures and answer the fundamental questions of how, where, when and why energy is produced, used and grid exchanged. The approach will target a reduction of energy consumption by up 30%, with commensurate CO2 reductions and cost savings. The project will make use of a full scale building laboratory environment (Kubik) for system integration and testing. The project will then implement the SPORTE2 modules in three full-scale pilots representative of the sector (e.g. swimming pools, indoor and outdoor courts, gyms, etc) and able to implement the smart grid concept through the availability of RET and cogeneration devices. Strong linkages to sport associations and green building design are present in the consortium to enable exploitation of project results.
