STEP 4 Demonstration and validation
The practical usability of the developed products (tools and apps) and services will be demonstrated on study cases in real-life operating conditions in five different geo-clusters (five demonstration cases). The results and analyses of the demonstrators will be used as feedback for previous work packages to adjust and fine-tune the methodologies, tools, services and supporting business models.
The demonstration cases will include the real-life conditions as follows:
Case 1: Kildenparken, social housing apartments, Aalborg, Denmark
Case 2: University of Ljubljana, buildings of four faculties, Slovenia
Case 3: Nearly Zero Energy Hotels: Hotel Residence L'Orologio, Turin, Italy
Case 4: Office building Qeske, Kerkrade, The Netherlands
Case 5: Smart City Wroclaw, Poland
The usability of the MOBISTYLE tools is evaluated by monitoring behavioral change for each demonstration case after 2 months, 6 months and 12 months of the behavioral change strategy implementation. A baseline is defined at the start of the monitoring phase, as any MOBISTYLE measures are implemented in order to assess users’ old habits and their daily behavior. Behavioral and building data gathered from the demonstrators and feedback from the user groups are used to adjust and fine-tune the methodologies, tools, services and supporting business models along with the project. Outcomes from the study will be used for generalizing recommendations in which the individual building users are classified in archetypes (personas), each with their own information approach and strategy to come to lasting behavioral change and motivation. For this purpose, and for each of the demo cases, a monitoring and awareness campaign is devised, that will be continued after the project duration.
