Approved Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Project

emrah-biyik-233x300We are happy to announce that the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Project, entitled “Efficient Grid Connected Buildings: A Distributed Control Framework for Managing Flexible Loads (BuildingControls)” was selected for funding by the European Commission.

The objective of the project is to develop (1) novel scalable optimal control algorithms that reduce building peak load and energy consumption, (2) a distributed control framework for coordinating multiple buildings as flexible energy resources for ancillary services, and (3) tools for assessing the performance of this framework from economic, environmental and sustainability perspectives.

The project will be coordinated by Assist. Prof. Dr. Emrah BIYIK and supervised by Prof. Dr. Arif HEPBAŞLI, Prof. Dr. Erol SEZER.
