Project Description

The aim of this project is to trial the RemoteHVAC software in real environments, so that new energy opportunities can be identified and acted upon, user feedback can be received and leveraged for further product development and real barriers to wide scale market entry can be uncovered and addressed. The proposed project already has a level of collaboration that is difficult to encapsulate within the bounds of this application, as the Inferrit team has assembled a stellar lineup of industry experts that are committed to seeing it succeed. The organisations; UCC, Ervia and Dunnes Stores, and their Facility Managers were very carefully selected for their expertise and standing in the HVAC. In addition, external Consultant expertise will bring a level of experience, independent oversight and guidance adding credibility to the project. These engaged participants will ensure delivery of project goals, as well as supporting the accelerated market entry of the software. Thus ensuring that public funds are efficiently used to help Ireland reach its national targets in 2020. The project will test the software on a range of systems, from modern open protocols to legacy systems with closed protocols. Data will come from a wide range of HVAC systems and configurations, this variability will help broaden the flexibility of the software. Lastly the energy saving benefits of continuous fault monitoring will be measured and demonstrated.
