KIC InnoEnergy was the winner in 2010 of all the proposals for becoming the selected KIC in sustainable energy, driven by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) A KIC (Knowledge Innovation Community) is a long term public private partnership, that fully integrates the so-called ‘knowledge triangle of business, education and research. The Commission approved in 2009 plan is to launch, sequentially, one KIC per societal challenge identified.
They operate three business lines:
- Education programmes (Specialized Master School, PhD School and Executive programs),
which create the future game changers (Masters, PhDs, mid-term professionals) in sustainable
- Innovation Projects, which focus on producing incremental – and a few disruptive –
technological innovations that contribute to the above mentioned energy strategic objectives
- Business Creation services, where we create innovative high potential start-ups, and grow
EnerBIM - Supporting the market for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV)
As more photovoltaic (PV) developers, engineers, building developers and property owners recognise the huge potential for energy savings offered by innovative new building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), interest is growing fast.
EnerBIM has developed BIPV-Insight, a building information modelling (BIM) platform that overcomes these challenges, and encourages greater use of BIPV in residential, commercial and industrial buildings.
BIPV-Insight from EnerBIM is an integrated software platform that provides easy visualisation of BIPV benefits at a building level. Its 3D modelling and instant simulations of solar power help predict the performance of BIPV and Building Applied Photovoltaics (BAPV) products, their overall impact on a building’s energy performance and comfort, and likely return on investment.
BIPV-Insight is available on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis. Standard services, including solar PV simulation are available free, while premium services will attract a fee. All subscribers gain an online collaborative space in which they can share projects, find solutions and partners, and showcase their references with potential partners in real time.
