Work Plan

SmartSPIN’s implementation plan has seven work packages (WP), following the general structure below:

Work plan


WP1: Project Management

Lead by IERC, this WP aims to develop an effective, transparent and comprehensive administrative, financial and legal management framework. Thus, ensuring a successful strategic and operational execution of the project framework. Furthermore, the WP works towards a smooth collaboration and integration between all partners, as well as facilitating communication within the project consortium and the representatives of the European Commission.

WP2: Review of smart energy services market for commercial renter sector

IERC leads WP2 with a main goal to provide recommendations for optimal design of the SmartSPIN services. The recommendations are to be based on evaluation of the current state of the smart energy services market focusing primarily on the rented sector. They are also to include key challenges and drives for deployment and uptake of smart energy services in the sector, as well as attitude and perceptions of all stakeholders throughout the value chain.

WP3: Contractual service definition

LS is responsible for WP3 and issuing a set of best practices guidelines to address the split incentives issues. The scope of work is to define the exact services that are to be included in the SmartSPIN business model, as well as the data and financial transactions between parties involved. As a final task, this WP aims at writing a contractual template of the offered service.

WP4: Data analytics for energy

TECNALIA is to oversee WP4 with a key task to identify the most suitable market audience for the project business model, focusing on different typologies of commercial buildings and facilities. In addition, WP4 also focuses on developing data-driven energy diagnostics algorithms to identify most significant energy and cost streams in the commercial rented sector. Moreover, within WP4 tasks are to develop algorithms to generate short and mi-term energy and cost predictions of the building performance. Finally, the WP4 is to look at the development and definition of requirements and selections of KPIs.

WP5: Demonstration and validation of the proposed service

As WP5 leader SMARKIA is to take the lead about the preparation of the selected demonstration sites in Spain, Greece and Ireland. SMARKIA is to oversee the planned activities, manage the implementation of the recommended energy efficiency and flexibility measures at each pilot site and compare energy consumptions for each pilot site to confirm successful deployment. Within WP5 tasks are to develop a strategy to achieve customer engagement and savings gamification and validate the proposed service model.

WP6: Business model definition and development of SmartSPIN toolkit

EUNICE is the WP6 leader and as such they are to draw together the generated results from WP3, WP4 and WP5 and define the SmartSPIN’s business model for deployment of smart energy systems. The following tasks within WP6 are to validate the business model, develop a toolkit and best practice guides on deployment of SmartSPIN for key stakeholders.

WP7: Communication, Dissemination, Engagement and Exploitation

EGEN will lead WP7 which main aim is to match the project results with market opportunities and make the project’s work widely known. It will promote the project results to variety of stakeholders and ensure uptake of the SmartSPIN business model and toolkit by the market and decision makers.
