The project BIGG (Building Information aGGregation, harmonization and analytics platform), funded by the European Commission under the H2020 programme (Grant Agreement n° 957047), has been launched in December 2020. BIGG aims at demonstrating the application of big data technologies and data analytic techniques for the complete buildings life-cycle of more than 4000 buildings in 6 large-scale pilot test-beds in Spain and Greece.
This Innovation Action brings together 12 partners from 5 European countries: Inetum-RealDolmen as coordinator - BE, CIMNE - ES, CSTB - FR, ICAEN - ES, DOMX - GR, IMEC - BE, Helexia - BE, Intuicy - IT, ICAT - ES, Engie Hellas - GR, HERON - GR and ECTP - BE, with solid complementary expertise and geographical coverage.
Throughout its duration – 36 months, the project is expected: (i) to design and implement a flexible and open source big data reference architecture to collect, analyse and exchange dynamic and static building - big - data; (ii) to standardise and internally harmonize the data collected from different sources; (iii) to develop an open, cloud-based building-related data analytics toolbox extensible to support third party developments and wide range of services; (iv) to validate the BIGG Data Analytics Toolbox over the BIGG Data Reference Architecture 4 Buildings in large-scale pilots supporting different multi-party business cases, in different countries; (v) to promote and incentivize the widespread adoption of BIGG platform by providing 1) attractive services, considering their financial sustainability and improving the user experience; 2) standardized and open solutions.
