Havirov

The BECA pilot site in the Czech Republic is located in Havirov, a city with 82,296 inhabitants founded in 1955 in the north-eastern part of the country. The first pilot building for the BECA project is situated in J.Jabůrkové Street in the city district of Mesto. It was selected as a typical multi-residential building from the municipal housing stock. This building was constructed in 1962 according to a national standard known as T02B and it was refurbished in 2009. It has altogether 36 rental apartments with 73 inhabitants.

The second pilot building is located in Uzavřená Street at a distance of 180 m from the first building and is nearly identical. The second building has the same parameters as the first building (the same typology, number of apartments and has also undergone refurbishment).

 

The buildings were selected because they are located in an attractive downtown area, with stable occupants who are mostly daily internet users. The first building has a total surface of about 1,761 m² and the second one 1,780 m2.

The expected savings are -5% heating energy and -20% for water consumption.

Tenants of the pilot site are mostly Czechs with medium/low education background. In the BECA project the Havirov team will implement innovative resource use awareness services (RUAS) for the tenants. These services focus on:

  • intelligent metering of water consumption and heating energy consumption,
  • analysis and presentation of individual consumption data to tenants,
  • design and development of solutions for informing tenants about their actual consumption and for demand self-management by tenants (tenant portal).

Resource Usage Awareness Service (RUAS)

Service description

Tenants will have access through internet to the web application where they can follow their consumption of water and heating energy. The consumption is indirectly measured with units measuring temperatures and the total consumption in the house distributed across dwellings according to temperature. The tenants will continue to pay on the basis of m² of their flat but RUAS shall work as a motivation to save energy.
