Alpine winter tourism territories demonstrating an integrated framework for a low-carbon, high-impact and resilient future


The objective of WP1 is to create tools for an integrated dashboard for energy transition in Alpine mountain areas, supporting the prioritization of low-carbon operations. This includes the development of situational awareness, actual performance assessment and Key Performance Indicators.
The activity A.T1.2 specifies the monitoring system on energy usage and production for the Living Labs (validated in WP2, integrated in WP3 Toolkit), based on T1.3 KPIs. The integrated monitoring system agglomerates energy data from multiple sources (snow making, snow grooming, ski lifts, buildings and other operation infrastructure) and performance indicators. It is developed for implementation in the three Living Labs to prioritize low-carbon operations.
This report draws general specifications for a real-time monitoring system monitoring. It comprises two main sections: 1) the first one starts from a real-life example, the existing integrated energy management system (IEMS) of Les Orres to describe the main components of its system and its environment and then extract the general functional specifications of any real-time IEMS; 2) the second one draws the specifications of an energy production real-time monitoring system, starting from the analysis of large-range energy management systems, then setting up the condition to a global energy consumption and production monitoring system.
