SUNSHINE final conference

The SUNSHINE consortium is delighted to announce the final event of the project, the SUNSHINE final conference that will take place in Bologna Urban Center on 14 January 2016. Renowned researchers from Belgium, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and United Kingdom will provide their expertise in the field of energy efficiency, Internet of Things, standards and EU policies, as well as open energy. Citizens and stakeholders interested in energy efficiency will also have the opportunity to take part in the SUNSHINE demos, streamed live, and experience first-handed solutions for energy maps, building energy awareness and remote control of public lighting.

More information about the conference can be found on the following website: www.sunshineproject.eu/conference2016/

The participation in the conference is free of charge. However, due to the limited number of seats, we kindly invite you to register.

The conference will be a great occasion for the exchange of ideas and expertise and therefore, we kindly invite all interested parties to join us in Bologna on 14 January 2016.

SUNSHINE: Training workshop in Trento

The SUNSHINE training workshop on Energy Maps took place in Trento (Italy) on 27 November 2015.

The event was very successful and addressed issues related to the territorial and geographical data, their collection and cataloging, and how these, integrating with other information sources, can be used to map the energy consumption of an urban area and assess its real energy needs. The objective of the event was to present not only the methodological framework but also the technological platform developed within the project SUNSHINE that offers a valid support to municipal energy planning and governance.

The workshop was structured in three parts:

  1. Introduction, during which was presented the SUNSHINE project and its scenarios, as well as the experience of users involvement in Bassano del Grappa, Italy.
  2. Discussions on energy, institutions and companies (estimation of energy consumption, spatial planning, new markets and energy saving from the provider’s point of view).
  3. The last session was devoted to data model, applications and validation process.

    Il 27 novembre 2015, a Trento si terrà il workshop formativo del progetto europeo SUNSHINE sul tema "SUNSHINE Energy Maps". Il workshop è rivolto a professionisti e amministratori pubblici che si occupano di efficienza energetica.

    Durante l’evento si affronteranno tematiche legate ai dati geografici e territoriali, alla loro raccolta e catalogazione, e di come questi, integrandosi con altre fonti informative, possano essere usati per mappare i consumi energetici di una area urbana e stimarne il reale fabbisogno energetico. Obiettivo dell’evento è presentare non solo il quadro di riferimento metodologico ma anche la piattaforma tecnologica sviluppata nell'ambito del progetto SUNSHINE che costituisce un valido supporto alla pianificazione energetica comunale e un importante aiuto alla governance delle Amministrazioni.

    Il workshop è accreditato dall'Ordine degli Architetti, Pianificatori, Paesaggisti e Conservatori della Provincia di Trento e dall’Ordine degli Ingegneri della Provincia di Trento e previa iscrizione, registrazione delle presenze ed esame finale dà diritto a crediti formativi (6 CFP per l'Ordine degli Architetti, 5 CFP per l'Ordine degli Ingegneri).
