The GreenPlay project, represented by our partner Euroquality, took part in the strategic workhop organised the 24th of February 2018 in Madrid. Organised by the research center CIRCE, under the umbrella of two of the European projects (NEED4B and TRIBE), this workshop gathered up to fifteen entities that showed the new solutions they have developed thanks to their projects in the fields of ICTs and energy efficiency, in order to reduce the energy consumption of buildings. More than 70 professionals from companies, research centers, universities and public bodies from all across Europe participated in the event.

Although these solutions share the same final goal, the way to achieve it differs from one to another. From new methodologies for designing buildings to software applications or social videogames, the workshop showed the different strategies developed in R&D projects that aim to contribute to a lower consumption of buildings at every stage of their life cycle, addressing both the building and its users and occupants. The GreenPlay solution has been presented within the session “ICT-based solutions for energy efficiency buildings” and raised the question of “How to engage customer and help them to save energy through a game and social networks?”.

Additionally, the event promoted the establishment of synergies between the key players of this sector, as well as the proposal of new R&D&I projects. Three main roundtables took place in parallel to discuss and share expertise about the upcoming EU funding opportunities:

  • Roundtable #1 : Socio-economic actions towards a sustainable energy use
  • Roundtable #2 : Solutions and services for building renovation
  • Roundtable #3 : Assessment of energy behaviour of buildings
