Torino

The pilot site Torino (Italy) includes three suburbs: Orbassano, Spina3 and MOI.

The three buildings with 697 dwellings have a total surface of about 44,606.60 m² (size from 30 m2 to 90 m2). In MOI and Spina3 the buildings were built between 2003 and 2006, in Orbassano already in the late 1980s, however they have been under renovation between 2005 and 2009. The buildings vary in energy performance from high (MOI and Spina3) to medium (Orbassano).

Three measurement and control systems from service providers Johnson, Caleffi and Techem are used in the pilot. All technical companies contractually agreed on allowing ATC to use the data collected by their systems in an unified and common portal without further interaction necessary during the process of data download. To fully enable the functionality of tenant facing web-services and the Resource Management Services (RMS), system upgrades were implemented.

Resource Usage Awareness Service (RUAS)

Service Description

ATC aims to unify the information available to tenants and staff for RUAS in one ATC portal connecting the suburbs MOI and Spina 3 and one Techem portal for Orbassano. The data is collected from the systems, adjusted to use common variables and unified in one database which is accessed through the web-portal. All tenants will be able to access the new web portal to check their consumption (heating and hot water). The tenants of MOI and Spina 3 will also be able to monitor their cold water consumption monthly.

Benchmarking opportunities/ comparisons

Tenants will be able to see their consumption and will receive (if needed) coaching from ATC in order to reduce their consumption. Tenants can also choose different ways to show consumption (table or diagrams).
