Ciao, SBA Italia!
New group will promote interoperability in smart buildings
December 10 saw the official launch of Smart Buildings Alliance Italia (SBA Italia). SBA is a think-tank created in 2012 to facilitate the digital transition of buildings, cities and networks.
Key plans for the alliance include development of the R2S certification, intended to underpin the EU's Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI) scheme. R2S will provide a qualitative assessment of a building's ability to adapt to the needs of occupants, efficiency and ease of maintenance, as well as its ability to adapt to energy network developments.
SBA Italia will seek to establish a commission to localize the R2S concept in line with the provisions of the Open Buildiing Operating Systems framework. The French R2S implementation is already active. Register for SBA Italia's online launch event here.
