CIMNE is an autonomous research and development centre, created in 1987. CIMNE has the experience and reputation gained through participation in more than 910 R&D projects with the financial support of the European Community, and various organizations as well as Spanish and international enterprises.
Within CIMNE, the Building Energy and Environment Group (BEE Group) is an autonomous department involving over 15 researchers (Physics, Engineering, ICT, Environmental Science and Statistics specialists). It was founded in 2001. BEE Group meets the challenge of employing their knowledge and experience to help users to get the best possible use out of the energy that they consume. They collaborate with leading research centers and build bridges between companies, users and researchers. BEE Group’s R&D activities are focused on: (i) Demand Response in buildings by developing technologies to maximize the flexibility of the electricity network while optimizing the use of distributed renewable energy sources in smart urban environments; (ii) Energy empowerment and user behaviour with the aim at supporting energy users to save energy by positively manage their energy consumption and increasing applicability and reliability through personalized energy services and adaptive visual interfaces; (iii) big data analytics for energy efficiency in buildings by developing data driven algorithms to get insights of the energy performance of huge amounts of buildings in real operation conditions; (iv) energy positive living by working actively to raise the awareness of the trend towards near zero and energy positive buildings; (v) bio-digesters by working in design, implementation and installation of domestic and industrial bio-digesters, adapting to simple technologies in cold climates.
Besides these activities in applied research, BEE Group has an active line in Consultancy and assessment to municipalities and facility owners to enhance their sustainable urban development. This is centred in the commercial Software as Service Platform for energy management of non-residential buildings (SIE) , an energy management service enabling auditing, monitoring and control energy consumption in private and public buildings and public lighting systems. It is implemented in over 6,000 public buildings and 250 municipalities. In 2012, in collaboration with RSM Gasso, BEEGROUP set up an energy services company, Inergy (http://www.inergybcn.com/) to commercialize SIE and further software developments. More recently, BEE Group has created an start-up company, Beedata Analytics (https://beedataanalytics.com), which works to solve one of the biggest challenges in the energy sector: Benefit from data and bring energy companies closer to the consumer.
