What is iBECOME?

iBECOME is a project that offers a paradigm shift in building energy efficiency by utilising IoT big data and advanced analytics. The novel cloud-based solution will utilise a physics-based dynamic simulation to deliver a suite of energy and non-energy services such as comfort and flexibility optimisation, automated fault detection and diagnostics, demand response and 3rd party applications. iBECOME will also look to unlock the next stage of energy efficiency by enabling deep building renovation and measurement & verification (M&V) in novel business models. ​


On-site IoT sensors and smart meters will be feeding real time information of the building along with data from energy markets and weather conditions

Analytics, Insights & Advisory Control

Data cloud storage and analysis, visualisation of performance metrics, display of insights and suggestions for manual interventions

Forecasting Toolbox

Calibrated physics-based energy model combined with machine learning algorithm predictions, using real data from the building to forecast the future building and facility conditions

Fault Detection, Diagnosis and Maintenance

Using the predictions of the forecasting toolbox for Fault Detection and Diagnosis and Predictive Maintenance


Using the predictions of the forecasting toolbox to enable energy savings through energy and comfort optimisation of building’s energy systems.

Retrofit Design & Implementation

Using the predictions of the forecasting toolbox to desing retrofit interventions and implement them through Measurement and Verification

On-site ICT automated control

The iBECOME vBMS will be automatically controlling on-site BMS or other ICT equipment.

Welfare & Commuting Management

3rd party providers will use the iBECOME vBMS data to enable additional services such as healthcare management and commuting optimisation

Our Motivation

The main motivation behind iBECOME is the need to address the inefficiencies of existing buildings and facilities either because of underperforming existing BMS or because they are small enough so as to not be equipped with BMS. In such buildings the deployment of the iBECOME solution will allow essential energy savings and comfort improvements at very low cost but also provide the ability to tap into the emerging markets of additional services (e.g. demand response).


Our Impact

iBECOME will encompass a simple, high level framework for measuring and/or calculating specific metrics that affect wellness and productivity and according to
the most up-to-date research will project those metrics into accountable, monetizable value of productivity and asset value increase. The big data output, both in granularity and number of variables that iBECOME can generate, allows a very precise characterisation of the indoor built environment and subsequently an accurate representation of its wellness features.

Review of Regulatory Framework

Deliverable 6.2 focuses on analysing and defining the regulatory framework in which the iBECOME Software as a Service (SaaS) solution is enrolled. This framework transcends several domains (energy systems, data platforms) from several perspectives (services, customers, providers, business models) and includes laws, regulations, codes and standards. The    deliverable    feeds    into    the    characterization    of    the    forth …
