The Goal
The COOPERATE goal is to utilize the power and flexibility of distributed computing to integrate diverse local monitoring & control systems to achieve energy services at a neighborhood scale.
 
 
 
 
The Premise
The COOPERATE premise is “that by allowing for inter- operability at the data level & by leveraging existing cloud solutions via common communication one can produce a loosely coupled integrated solution that goes beyond the current state of the art & which is likely to be adopted given an existing hybrid-cloud landscape”.

Scientific, Economic & Societal impact
The project aims to demonstrate the impact & benefits of ICT to improve the energy management of a neighbourhood, & their environmental performance through an online Neighbourhood  Management System.By visualising & tracking energy consumption, consumers are sensitized to the high importance of energy topics & develop consumption awareness, helping to reduce the final energy bill and CO2 emission. Increasing consumer’s acceptance & willingness to participate.

Demonstration & Use
COOPERATE will carry out a substantial validation of the concepts in two validation sites, the Bouygues Challenger campus in France & the CIT Bishopstown campus in Ireland. The validation will demonstrate how the proposed platform & services will move the two neighbourhoods towards energy positivity & howmuch energy and CO2 emissions reduction can be achieved.
