CASCADE: ICT for Energy Efficient Airports

CASCADE will develop facility-specific measurement-based energy action plans for airport energy managers that are underpinned by Fault Detection Diagnosis (FDD) Methods. A framework and methodology to build customised ICT solutions will be developed and executed that integrate with and rest upon the existing ICT infrastructure. A measurement framework and minimal data set will be established that control and benchmark equipment performance, optimise user behaviour, and match client specifications. FDD enables beyond the state of the art energy management because it can be used to suggest problems in system design, equipment efficiency, and operational settings. CASCADE then turns FDD into actionable information by developing an energy action plan that links Actions-Actors-ISO Standards through a web-based management portal. CASCADE will bring to the European Commission the opportunity to engage the European airport community on the topic of energy efficiency
