Webinar with Sérgio Pinheiro, PhD from University College Dublin

In this seminar, automation and control engineer Sérgio Pinheiro presents his doctoral research, and also talks about the research group of Prof. James O'Donnell, member of the UCD Energy Institute. The webinar was broadcast in two parts, on February 25, 2021. By accessing the links below, you can watch the presentations in full:  

  • Part 1: environmental quality requirements and energy performance for buildings during operation.

    Watch the video clicking here.

    Abstract: presentation of the doctoral research, which aimed to define a subset of requirements that help the maintainer to make informed decisions for the improvement of the environmental and energy conditions of a building in the operation phase. The proposed framework for the research uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) as a data repository where requirements are systematically structured and stored. This proposal allows maintainers to access information in a digitized environment, thus avoiding loss of information. To extract information from the BIM model, a specific Model View Definition (MVD) was defined using the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) format. The process uses the Information Delivery Manual (IDM) methodology to describe the stakeholders involved in the exchange of information. The research's originality lies in the combination of methodologies such as Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA), IDM and MVD to provide maintainers with an efficient and effective analysis method capable of identifying areas for improvement.

  • Part 2: overview of Prof. James O'Donnell at University College Dublin.

    Watch the video cliking here.

    Abstract: The UCD Energy Institute is a research group led by several researchers that functions as a hub for education and research in the area of energy and decarbonization. Dr James O'Donnell is one of the contributors and his current work with the Energy Institute focuses on the development and deployment of interoperable data models to support the building operation supported by Building Information Modeling (BIM) and energy simulation tools from the whole building.

Webinar on Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in Brazil

  • In this seminar, Professor Roberto Lamberts addresses the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) defined in the proposed normative text for the thermal performance chapters of ABNT NBR 15575:2020, a Brazilian standard for the performance of residential buildings. This presentation was part of a series of lectures promoted among the participants of Annex 80, where researchers from different parts of the world can share their experiences regarding the study of the resilience of buildings. 

    Annex 80 - Resilient Cooling of Buildings, is an international study group promoted by the IEA EBC (International Energy Agency: Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme). Brazil made its participation in Annex 80 and other IEA Annexes official in the year 2020, and this webinar was broadcast in November 2020.
