Climate panel for R8 Digital Operator
R8tech started the program at June 01, 2021 and it will last for 18 months.
The aim of the Green ICT project is to develop climate models for better operation of the indoor climate of buildings. Based on climate models, an addition to the R8 Digital Operator will be created in the form of a climate panel, which will allow buildings’ managers to adjust the indoor climate in real time, taking into account the impact of changes on the energy consumption of buildings.
Estimated results of the project:
1. Create climate models to optimize HVAC equipment.
2. Create a climate panel at the R8 Digital Operator.
3. Increase the average energy savings of buildings achieved by the R8 Digital Operator and reduce CO2 emissions.
4. To grow the customer base, turnover and profit of R8tech and to create new jobs.
