The ExcEED platform experience: a peek into the user’s perspective
The H2020 ExcEED project launched its collaborative platform that gathers, categorises, visualises and benchmarks multiple building data. As users add their buildings’ monitoring data, the platform transforms this data into knowledge using energy performance indicators and air quality surveys. This, in turn, benefits building users all well as other stakeholders from the building sector and civil society by improving the efficiency of buildings.
What is the overall user experience with the ExcEED platform? Which benefits can the user get? Why the ExcEED platform can be the innovative benchmarking platform that could really make the difference when it comes to boosting the energy performance of the EU building stock? We asked all these questions to the very first user of the platform, Hoval, heating and air conditioning solutions producer and ExcEED partner. Their headquarters building, Casa Hoval, is the demonstraton case of the project, used to test the platform and its tools. In this interview, Mihai Bodea, Product Engineer for Digital Services and Platforms at Hoval, stresses the usefulness of the platform’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and benchmarking tools, that allow not only to convert the information from the company’s own products into knowledge but also to both analyse and optimise new and existing buildings.
