"DEVELOPING ON THE ROAD OF ADVANCED R&D WORK OF ENERGY OPTIMIZATION PLATFORM FOR BUILDINGS COOPERATING WITH THE BMS SYSTEM, ACCORDING TO ISO 50001”

Project description

The main goal of the project is to create a building energy optimization platform compatible with the BMS system, in accordance with the ISO 50001 standard, intended for residential and service construction, in which sensors and intelligent construction systems are installed. The developed solution will be compatible with systems based on the BMS (Building Management Systems) environment. As part of this project, it is planned to conduct industrial research and experimental development, which will result in an innovative product. The applicant plans to implement the project results into their own business through sales in the SAAS model (software as a service) together with an analytical service. The project will contribute to the development and increase of competitiveness of the Śląskie Voivodeship.

"DISTRIBUTED ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND VIRTUAL POWER PLANT USING AN ICE WAREHOUSE NETWORK”

Project description

Electricity storage is currently one of the biggest challenges for power systems in the world. In the following years, a very high increase in demand for this type of services is forecasted, mainly due to the change in the model of electricity production from the classical one based on professional energy into distributed systems based on unstable renewable energy sources. Ensuring the stability of this type of system requires the search for new solutions allowing to equalize the instantaneous values of energy demand and production. The project aims to develop technologies for storing electricity in a distributed cold battery network. Energy recovery from heat to electricity will occur by reducing the demand for electricity - shutting down chillers during the period in which they would normally have to work at full power. To this end, an IT system will be developed that will create a virtual power plant based on a network of distributed cold accumulators connected with refrigeration units. In order to achieve high efficiency of such a constructed virtual power plant, an innovative refrigeration device containing an innovative cold battery will be developed worldwide. New design solutions of this device ensure efficient work and competitive cost of cold production. The proposed solution fits very well with current market trends: it will increase the efficiency of electricity use by taking over the surplus of Renewable Energy Sources in the energy network and will allow mass cooling to individual and institutional customers at very competitive prices. The solution has a new dimension in the world.

APA SP. Z O. O. IMPLEMENTS A PROJECT FUNDED WITH EUROPEAN FUNDS: "MULTIMEDAL PLATFORM FOR MONITORING PAIN IN REHABILITATION".

Project description

The main goal of the project is to design and develop a telemedicine platform that monitors the intensity of pain, which makes it possible to identify critical moments for the patient's functional state. Equipping a physiotherapist or doctor with such information can be an extremely valuable indicator in the etiology of abnormalities, which may lead to overloading. This form of monitoring the intensity of pain ailments finds its analogy in pressure-type Holter or ECG devices that allow to indicate critical moments for the patient's functional state.
