BEYOND THE STATE OF THE ART
BESOS is an EU Research and Development project, financed by the EC within the context of the 7th Framework Programme, which proposed the development of an advanced and integrated system, enabling the management of energy efficiency in smart cities from a holistic perspective.
This project was born of the need to obtain more information on the isolated management systems in the cities with different services, such as: public lighting, urban heating system, electric vehicles, etc. to achieve coordinated advanced strategies for energy saving in the cities, as well as opening new business models. To achieve this advanced and integrated system, a decision-making support system was created (“Open Trustworthy Energy Service Platform”), which improves energy efficiency in the cities, making it possible to reduce costs and guaranteeing the levels of service quality (QoS) established.
Cobra’s role in this project was to contribute its experience in generating renewable energy and interaction with the Spanish TSO for the development of the platform.
