iBECOME Project started earlier this year in June 2020, with all the consortium getting together in a digital Kick-off meeting in May. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to travel and meet all together in Dublin for the Kick-off meeting, however, we replaced it with an online event, which was smooth and managed to replace the physical meeting in great success. iBECOME is an ambitious project, funded by the H2020 programme, aiming to develop an innovative virtual Building Management System that will enable the efficient control of a building or facility,reducing bills through energy savings and demand response, improving the occupant wellbeing though optimising thermal and visual comfort, as well as enabling additional services such as commuting optimisation. iBECOME is coordinated by IESR&D with participation by: CEA, CIVIESCO, IMR, ElecEx, RINA-C, Ener.Gi, IES Ltd., EOLYA and Schneider Electric. More details about the project and consortium can be found in the relevant sections in our new website.
