Buildings energy efficiency | SPORTE2 system for sports stadiums

Currently ongoing project at European level to improve energy efficiency in buildings with large influx of persona:SPORTE2. This project is part of the European Union 7th framework programme for r + d and is by entering the testing phase in the tecnalia kubik building and a sports centre in Etxebarri, Bizkaia.

SPORTE2 is defined by its members as an intelligent management system to integrate and control the generation, use and exchange of energy for buildings of sports and recreation in Europe ("Intelligent Management System to integrate and control energy generation, consumption and exchange for European Sport and Recreation Buildings"). The project is in charge of Tecnalia Research & Innovation and Emtesport (integral management of sports facilities). Technology centres, universities and specialized firms of Italy, Greece and Portugal joined them.

The budget of this project is 4,71 EUR million and will have Community funding of 2.97 million. SPORTE2 development plan has a duration of 36 months, estimated date of completion in September 2013.

East intelligent management system of buildings (BMS) will be modular and scalable. Developed by SPORTE2 features include monitoring, integrated control and optimization of energy in sports stadiums management and leisure centres. The entire European continent, estimated to be 1.5 million buildings, approximately 8% of the total number of buildings.

The system that will develop SPORTE2, will be suitable for both installed in equipment operation, as in new construction. Via is expected to achieve an energy saving of up to 30%, and thus also a significant reduction of the emissions of CO2 and a significant economic benefit.

Much of the research and testing of this system will be made in Vizcaya. On the one hand use the experimental building "KUBIK by Tecnalia", located in the Technological park of Bizkaia. In addition, you will implement in the Polideportivo Municipal de etxebarri (bizkaia), managed by Emtesport. There will be a key instance of the project: the test in a public space where will be made into play additional features: regulation of heating, ventilation, hot water, air-conditioning, management, monitoring and storage of energy, etc.

This energy management developed by SPORTE2 in Bizkaia model is a pioneer in Europe, and will be tested in edificios-piloto of other European cities.
