  1. 1. Fundación Deusto – DeustoTech Energy DeustoTech Energy was created to give response to the present and future needs of companies within the energy, water, waste management and urban sector. Our research focuses on the following areas: •Energy distribution systems knowledge •Water networks •Waste management Integration of energy systems Environment and clean technologies DeustoTech Energy
  2. 2. Uso de modelos multi-agentes para la edificación y urbanización sostenible. Casos de éxito en eficiencia energética, gestión de residuos urbanos y redes de drenaje y saneamiento. Use of multi-agent models for sustainable construction and urbanisation. Success cases in energy efficiency, waste management systems and drainage and sewerage networks.

  3. 3. Why are simulations beneficial? • Sometimes the solution requires a lengthy process of configuration and deployment. • Large amount of time needed to acquire a sufficient data for analysis. • High economic investment and time restrictions related to the deployment of technologies in real or scaled environments. • Simulation environment also provides the benefit of consistent, constant, and immediate feedback. • Helps the decision making process.
  4. 4. What are multi-agent systems? • Multi-agent systems are I.T. systems composed of multiple interacting intelligent agents within an environment. • Intelligence may include some methodic, functional, procedural approach, algorithmic search or reinforcement learning. • Active agents (proactive) and passive agents (they only react to stimuli initiated by other agents). • Agents can communicate with one another and may decide to operate individually or work together towards a common goal.

  6. 6. Case 1: Waste management systems
  7. 7. Objective: Move forward the current waste management practices into a circular economy motto demonstrating the value of integrating and validating 20 eco-innovative solutions that cover all the waste value chain. The benefits of these solutions will be enhanced by a holistic waste data management methodology, and will be demonstrated in 4 complementary urban areas in Europe Waste4Think: Moving Towards Life-Cycle Thinking by Integrating Advanced Waste Management Systems

  9. 9. Case 2: Energy efficiency
  10. 10. Greensoul: Persuasive Eco-awareness for User Engagement through Networked Data Services Objective: Achieve higher energy efficiency in public buildings by altering the way people use energy consuming shared and personal devices: • Persuade users to increase their energy-awareness and change their e-consumption habits through a variety of techniques, from persuasive social applications to physical interaction mechanisms linked to the networked devices • Embed intelligence into the networked devices to allow them autonomously decide about their operational mode for energy efficiency purposes.

  13. 13. EstolZAIN: Advanced Management of Drainage and Sewerage Networks Objective: Development of a platform for on-line monitoring and simulation of the entire urban sanitation network, allowing a continuous monitoring of the system: • Detection of drainage network stagnation zones. • Forecast episodes of uncontrolled spills and flooding. • Quantitative risk analysis for floods and uncontrolled spills.
