CEN /TC 247 Building Automation, Controls and Technical Building Management Group
These days we, a project team among TC 247 experts, are finalizing the draft papers for the mandate 480, a huge harmonization effort delivering a holistic approach for building Standard. One of the outputs is to bring eu.bac System into en European standard.
Next to this activity we will be upgrading with experts from eu.bac the upcoming M480 – version of EN 15232 into eu.bac System, the BACS certification system from eu.bac. This is one of the current projects in the committee while at the same time we are structuring some thoughts on a standard for smart buildings (commercial) that fit with activities in various groups towards smart grid standardization (driven from IEC).
This is – what I would call - an innovative development serving not only the building owner / user but also the entire energy supply chain including local generation and/or renewable energy integration in building operations.
So far we were more-less focusing on classic BACS – functionality, energy efficiency and comfort/productivity deliverable in buildings while we aim to get a standard that delivers functionality serving smart behavior of a building as prosumer. This is a significant change in building operations since a new task of BACS is to become a forward looking tool in order to plan energy preparation (e.g. cold water) according to predicted needs including storage capabilities of buildings and equipment (e.g. storage facilities).
We are still striving for experts to both lead and contribute to that effort while bringing in solid controls know how maintaining compatibility with existing standards. One of our strategies is to lift our EN – Standards with our liaison committee ISO/TC 205 to the ISO level of papers. The entire team of TC247 is engaged to deliver market oriented and practical deliverables.
