VIOTAS & iBECOME – Intelligent & Flexible Building Asset Control


Developing intelligent building asset control for comfort optimisation and flexibility. Working together to address the inefficiencies of existing buildings and facilities by creating a paradigm shift in building energy efficiency and flexibility.

What is iBECOME?

iBECOME is a collaborative Horizon 2020 project between ten partners focused on revolutionising building energy efficiency & flexibility through IoT big data and advanced analytics. This novel cloud-based solution utilises a physics-based dynamic simulation to deliver a suite of energy and non-energy services such as comfort and flexibility optimisation, automated fault detection and diagnostics, demand response and 3rd party applications. iBECOME also looks to unlock the next stage of energy efficiency by enabling deep building renovation and measurement & verification (M&V) in novel business models.


The main motivation behind iBECOME is the need to address the inefficiencies and untapped flexibility potential of existing buildings and facilities either because of underperforming existing BMS or because they are small enough so as to not be equipped with BMS. In such buildings the deployment of the iBECOME solution will allow essential energy savings and comfort improvements at very low cost but also provide the ability to tap into the growing market of demand response, enabling additional revenue streams for the customer’s unlocked energy flexibility.


iBECOME encompasses a simple, high-level framework for measuring and/or calculating specific metrics that affect wellness and productivity and according to the most up-to-date research. It projects those metrics into accountable, monetizable value of productivity and asset value increase. The big data output, both in granularity and number of variables that iBECOME can generate, allows a very precise characterisation of the indoor built environment and subsequently an accurate representation of its wellness features.
