Full project name: BECA – Balanced European Conservation Approach – ICT services for resource saving in social housing
image001 Project designed, developed and piloted new solutions to enable sustained reductions in energy consumption across European social housing. This was accomplished firstly by providing usable ICT-based services for Resource Management (RMS) and Resource Awareness (RUAS) directly to tenants, secondly by providing effective ICT monitoring and control of local generation of power and heat and thirdly by providing social housing providers, regional and national government with the data they need to optimise their energy-related policy and investment decisions at national, regional and organisational level. beca pilot

BECA project pilot sites where located in 7 cities in 7 countries. Belgrade was the only pilot site outside of EU.

Belit developed ICT-based services, usable directly by tenants of the buildings, for Resource Management (RMS) and Resource Use Awareness (RUAS) enabling them to monitor and plan their usage of key resources. This resulted in sustained reductions in consumption of those resources.

Resources User Awareness Solution (RUAS)
The tenants can be made aware of their energy and water consumption in near real time in different ways. By monitoring their own consumption, tenants see the impact of their everyday actions on their energy consumption (and bills) and adopt a more energy efficient behavior.

Resource Management Service (RMS)
It includes the different services for housing managers by providers to improve the energy management in a set of dwellings. The provider of RMS can monitor precisely the energy consumptions and performances of the equipped flats and houses. This allows for further improvement on the energy consumption of a building.
The project helped Europe meet emission targets by achieving a significant reduction of energy consumption in European social housing.
