BEEP in Cyprus takes part at project´s workshop on the application of Building Information Modelling in certain sectors.

The Cyprus Institute, patner of BEEP, will present the project on 8 December 2022 at the 2nd URBAN PERIScOPE Project workshop. The workshop will demonstrate a Heritage Building Information Modelling (HBIM) approach to accessing, processing and re-using information by means of a multimodal and multiscale open, online interface. The BEEP contribution will focus on informing the participants about the current developments in the field of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to Building Performance Simulation (BPS) interoperability workflows for energy efficient building renovation. The audience will be composed of policy makers and key actors in the country. 

The workshop will take place next 8th December, at the Cyprus Institute in Nicosia, from 14.00 to 16.00.

About the BEEP project:

BEEP project aims at strengthening the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) to enhance energy efficiency in buildings. The testing of this emerging technology on built heritage will be performed to demonstrate its scalability to the entire building stock. The project will provide public administrations with a powerful method for the energy rehabilitation of public buildings to be supported with private funds through the Energy Performance Contracting (*). The project main outcome will be an innovative methodology based on the integration of emerging technologies tested on 9 heritage public buildings located in Italy, Spain, Cyprus, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, and Egypt.

(*) Energy performance contracting (EPC) is a mechanism for organising the energy efficiency financing. The EPC involves an Energy Service Company (ESCO) which provides various services, such as finances and guaranteed energy savings. The remuneration of the ESCO depends on the achievement of the guaranteed savings. The ESCO stays involved in the measurement and verification process for the energy savings in the repayment period. ESCO and energy performance contracting are mostly found in the public sector and to a lesser extent in the industrial and commercial building sectors (Hilke and Ryan, 2012).
