The CHRONICLE team will deliver a holistic, life-cycle performance assessment framework and toolset for different building variants, thereby supporting the sustainable design of new and existing construction projects, efficient renovation procedures, and investment decision making processes.
Digital Twin Framework
The continuous monitoring and analysis of actual building performance over a building’s lifetime will be based on the powerful digital twin framework. CHRONICLE will extend the limits of EU energy related policies regarding data availability and accessibility, while also facilitating efficient energy planning with aggregated EPC advanced information.
Already implemented building performance tools will be methodologically integrated in a ‘Digital Building Logbook’. Examples of such tools could be dynamic EPC (Energy Performance Certificates) and SRI (Smart Readiness Indicator).
Key Performance Indicators
Building performance will be assessed by means of well-defined KPIs, based on static building design information as well as dynamic sensor measurements. KPIs will be appropriately tailored the use of the building, whether the building is new or existing, and the stage of the building’s lifecycle.
Awareness of energy consumption
CHRONICLE will allow all involved stakeholders to realize the long- and short-term impacts of a project in quantified terms, along a building’s lifecycle. In this way, CHRONICLE will promote evidence-based impact assessment practices which support policy coherence, the design of smart penalties, and reward schemes towards motivating energy consciousness.
CHRONICLE considers all market stakeholders, including architects, engineers, construction managers (AECs), energy service companies (ESCOs), facility managers (FMs), building owners, and building occupants.
