  16. 16. Cross-border pilots in practice 5 individual pilots; Helsinki, Leiden, Lisbon, Luleå, Manchester Responsibilities:  Leiden/CETIM; System Architecture  Portugal/ISA; Integration of pilots to iCenter, data communication, with pilots and Serious Game  Helsinki/Aalto Uni; Serious Game  Luleå/CDU; Testing of pilots, energy saving, user behavior transformation  Pilot work group; Living Lab methodology, UI, system integration, other interfaces Skype discussions about every 2 weeks Open discussions, exchange of information and experiences, helping each others
  17. 17. Target UBT in Helsinki Results Reference and Baselines for electricity,Evaluation of the present energy 1. heat and water consumption (totalconsumption of the total building Energy Audit building, kitchen, HVAC-machines)New technology and solutions in the Consumption and saving results, new 2.classrooms, kitchen, entrance hall, technology, new role of the users Pilot Applicationsgym Provide different user groups withData acquisition from the wireless 3. sophisticated real time information inmeasurements and from BM&AS ICT System clearly understandable formThe users are able to change their The users have been interested in 4. following the information at info TV andbehaviour, when seeing the real Info TVsconsumption information of their work willing to change their energy consumptionTo get people to play the game and to 5. The users (children) have beenlearn more about energy saving Serious Game interested in playing the game, in Helsinki about 100 players 6. Instructions and best practicesEvaluation of the kitchen operations Kitchen User motivation and interestand energy consumption EvaluationTo teach, motivate and explain the ICTresults on info TV, to listen and to get 7. The real time measurements show thethe feedback from the users, to check User discussions, savings achieved in the kitchen. All thethe change of behaviour and motivation, tests, savings have been based on the UBT.consumption, to test the knowledge of interviews,the users questionnaires

  22. 22. Pihkapuisto; Action Plan for M19 – M26 1.Responsibility; Teachers Riikka Vitikka, Hanna Seppälä Principal; Mirja Pere, Vice-principal; Sampsa VuorioGoal: Learning by doing and clarifying (problem – Idea – Innovation – Commission – Normal Use) Issues to be discussed and taught by the teacher at the classroom:  Comparison and annual usage of different electrical devices  How to save energy by changing behavior or by innovations  What is a low energy house  How to use renewable energy sources more effectively  How to affect on energy saving at home  What energy saving tips the pupils can find
  23. 23. Pihkapuisto; Action Plan for M19 – M26 2. Establishment of an energy club/work group in the classroom  To research what is the standby consumption of devices  How to reduce the standby consumption  The day without electricity at the school  Lighting team (rules of operations, what is unnecessary use of lighting) Design the own energy house by pupils  Implementation by a pilot model scale Supervision of the energy consumption at the school pilots by the ICT system, displays and reports will be explained to the pupils Energy audit of the classroom made by pupils Useful links and energy blog on the web pages of the school International co-operation with other schools around Europe More media publicity required (suggested by parents)
  24. 24. Preliminary exploitation plan of city of HelsinkiItem Objective Schedule 1 Better benefits of the regular energy audit of buildings, more Immediately of them, implementing the proposals suggested ! 2 The use of EC-motors for HVAC systems Gradually 3 The use of new sensor based lighting systems Gradually 4 Better use of Living Lab methodology, from speeches to Immediately doings, listening carefully, teaching, learning new way of thinking, goal oriented commitment to work; Savings by User behavior transformation 5 Saving by regrouping, rescheduling and time programming Gradually the large groups of lights (at entrance halls) 6 Tuning better and properly the building management & Immediately automation systems (BM&AS) 7 Better benefits by using the local BM&AS to monitor also the Gradually consumption of electricity 8 Further building electricity and automation training to janitors Immediately
  25. 25. Preliminary exploitation plan of Metropolia UASItem Objective Schedule 1 Better energy efficiency at Metropolia’s own buildings and Immediately campus areas 2 Update of every study plan (new courses, measuring Immediately devices, laboratory exercises, new learning, understanding, commitment); Certification of energy efficiency should be a citizen’s skills 3 The students should be committed with CDIO –project works Immediately to make energy evaluations and audits everywhere in Helsinki (industry, private and public buildings, hotels, restaurants, sport/concert halls, supermarkets, shopping centers, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, housing for ageing people, …). Networking with several municipal depts. and companies started ! 4 Continuously increasing interest found from our neighboring Immediately cities and communities; Espoo and Vantaa; Co-operative discussions already started with many of them! 5 Interaction and co-operation within several study fields at Immediately Metropolia (electricity – automation – ICT – Building Technology – Food technology - Welfare and social field)
  26. 26. About Scalability ? The city of Helsinki owns public buildings The city of Helsinki owns about 1.200 public buildings including 200 school buildings, 350 kindergartens and 7 hospitals, office buildings, libraries, etc.
