urbaneer: Using the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance energy efficiency, comfort and wellbeing in residential blocks

A breakfast seminar for local authorities and social landlords

Friday 15 July | 8:30am - 11:00am
Funded by the DECC EEF, the groundbreaking urbaneer project has now come to its conclusion. The urbaneer project trialled the use of state-of-the-art IoT technologies to monitor energy and environmental data in residential blocks. It created a smart toolkit for local authorities and social landlords to use this data to optimise the retrofit of low carbon measures into their existing blocks. urbaneer's aim is to improve overall building energy performance and living conditions, as well as reducing high energy bills for residents. Through urbaneer we've also explored other applications for this IoT technology to improve health, wellbeing, safety and security for social housing residents.
AgilityEco and BRE invite you to attend a one-off seminar to introduce you to the urbaneer project and explore other applications for IoT technology in social housing.
