Dr. Stavrakakis presented the IMPULSE project, its objectives and progress so far with special focus on the demonstration of pilot applications of project protocols for the public buildings of the Heraklion municipality. The following topics were presented:
· Use of D3.3.1 excel platform for the classification of the initial sample of public buildings.
· Energy simulations using Designbuilder-EnergyPlus.
· Use of the D3.4.1 excel platform for the prioritization of energy-upgrading scenarios and impacts on the whole initial sample of public buildings.
Discussions with attendees also took place emphasizing on the IMPULSE usefulness regarding the provision of IT tools that can automatize the process of developing gradual energy upgrading plans for large samples of public buildings. Potential for future synergies with EDUFOOTPRINT for processing of KPIs particularly of school buildings were identified.
