Improvement of Energy Efficiency in Technology Parks of the Med Area through Intelligent Models and Uses

SMART-MED-PARKS est un projet pilote financé dans le cadre du Programme MED qui a pour objectif d’améliorer l’efficacité énergétique des Parcs Scientifiques et Technologiques, en contribuant à la création d’un modèle auto suffisant de génération et de consommation d’énergies par le déploiement de Smart Grid.

Ce modèle, testé dans cinq Parcs Scientifiques et Technologiques en Espagne, Italie, France et Portugal favorisera l'efficacité énergétique et l'intégration des énergies renouvelables comme facteur clé pour la compétitivité et la viabilité du modèle économique et social actuel des parcs de la zone méditerranéenne. 


Starting date February 2013 - Ending date January 2015

Taking into account the strategic importance of energy efficiency within the MED area and at the heart of the EU’ 2020 strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth for the a transition to a resource efficient economy, the project cornerstone relies on the idea that energy demand in parks should be largely covered with local power plants, and that a larger energy self-sufficiency application would allow Mediterranean parks energy savings, and would imply incorporation of technologies. That make use of...

After two years, the Smart-MED-Parks project has concluded its activities on January 31st 2015.

The most important deliverable of the project is now available for download in the section "Software Tool" of this website. According to the project objectives, this tool will allow:

a) The characterization and quantification of energy demand and consumption in Science and Technological Parks (STPs).
b) To provide mechanisms to improve energy efficiency and to measure, or at least estimate, this improvement.
c) To foster ...
