Leandro Madrazo, Marco Massetti, Glòria Font, Inés Alomar

Abstract: This p aper d escribes a project cu rrently b eing conducted within the E uropean p roject I ntUBE ( The aim of th is p roject is to develop i nnovative I CT s olutions which can contribute t o r educing e nergy us e i n t he building sector i n E urope. T he m ain f ocus o f I ntUBE is to model, store and process the en ergy information obtained throughout the whole b uilding lif ecycle in an E nergy In formation In tegration P latform (EIIP). Our assumption i s t hat s uch a p latform would make an intelligent use of the energy information possible at the different stages of the building lifecycle, which in tu rn w ould r esult in a significant reduction in energy use. The project r eported o n i n t his p aper focuses on modelling energy information at the early design stage.
