Innovation Challenge Digital Buildings

The Innovation Challenge is organized by Industryhack and in collaboration with Siemens, Kone and Skanska. Innovation Challenge is an agile activity to develop proof-of-concepts for new innovative companies to co-create business applications or service concepts on top of Mindsphere. PoC's are enabling their clients such as the constructors, owners and users of a building to make the most out of the building and the data it collects. 

Siemens, Kone and Skanska have implemented Mindsphere-based IoT platform for a new building, also including building information modeling (BIM). BIM makes it possible to create an active digital twin of a building in the planning phase, allowing better optimization of both the design of the building and its construction.  Application deadline is at December 13th. Kickoff and co-development camp will be organized in January 2019.

Virtual Energy Platform / Virtual Power Plant

Virtual Energy Platform is a digital platform used in virtual power plant projects. Digitalization and energy transformation change markets, and virtual power plants enable new earning models and profitable investments in green buildings. Buildings are joining in the virtual power plant and balancing the electricity network. Energy consumption is activily controlled to balance the grid, and usage of fossil power can be reduced as back-up power.

Virtual Energy Platform, designed and engineered by Siemens, will soon be operating at Kauppakeskus Sello shopping center in Espoo. A smart power microgrid is built at the Sello and it will be connected to the broader energy system. The storage battery system is built within the premises will enable smart electricity storage and usage. It is the largest storage battery system in Northern Europe.
