Project’s presentation & objectives
The final objective of the project is to progress towards energy positive neighborhoods and to achieve the EU Climate & Energy objectives. The COOPERATE project is challenged with developing and demonstrating an open, scalable neighborhood service and management platform that integrates local monitoring and control functions with the power, flexibility and scalability of cloud computing for the delivery of energy and other valued services.
To realise that challenge COOPERATE must allow for federation of information set against a hybrid-cloud landscape whereby public and private clouds exchange data, while at the same time ensuring data privacy and security is maintained. COOPERATE follows a “system of systems” approach, in order to integrate heterogeneous systems within the neighborhood and enable interoperability at the data and technological level based on the COOPERATE Neighborhood Information Model (NIM).
