The Life – OPERE project met this week a panel of experts to optimize the work carried out in the design and development the network of sensors and the monitoring system of the buildings of the Campus Vida, thus creating the digital environment suitable for efficient energy management.
The optimization of the smart grid and the monitoring system will allow to increase the level of reliability and quality of the electrical supply, reduce the consumption and improve the functioning of the global system (active management of the demand), contributing to greater energy efficiency and to reduce emissions of CO2. Thus, OPERE fulfills with the Europe 2020 energy strategy which seeks the reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions by 20%, the improvement of energy efficiency by 20% and increasing the use of renewable energy by 20%.
OPERE project mains to set efficient management systems in energy networks, both thermal and electrical, in existing installations with large energy consumption. The goal is to achieve a 30% reduction in energy consumption associated with the thermal generation and 35% in CO2 emissions, as well as get a 35% economics saving. The outcome from the project will be a system for the management of energy networks modular and easily replicable in other centers of the USC.
The meeting was attended by the responsible for the areas of infrastructure and ICT of the USC, the management of buildings of big consumption of the Complejo Hospitaliario Universitario of Santiago de Compostela and the Hospital Lucus Augusti, and the company CLECE.
