SEMANTIC TOOLS FOR CARBON REDUCTION IN URBAN PLANNING Co-funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme Platform The SEMANCO integrated platform provides access to widely dispersed energy related  data about cities stored by many different organisations. In this way the project platform  supports improved energy analysis based on the assessment of existing data rather  than estimates. It does this using semantic data modelling that enables information stored in different  formats and different places to be used to create a multi-level energy model of an  urban area. That can be used to analyse the energy performance of buildings,  neighbourhoods, districts and regions. Tools Benefits Manresa, Spain Some of the most relevant technological outputs of the project Integrated platform Deliverables Publications Wiki Case studies Ontology editor Ontology mapping tool Newcastle, United kingdom  Copenhagen, Denmark Visit the blog The SEMANCO integrated platform has been developed for three cases of study. The data available in each area has been integrated using semantic technologies.  Demonstration scenarios have been implemented in three cycles to test the functionalities of the platform's tools. The project activities at each case study are reported in the blogs.​ Project Outputs Recent news & events SEMANCO will be present at the 6th ECTP Conference in Brussels 2nd June 2014 SEMANCO will present a poster at the 6th European Construction Technology Platform conference that will  take place in Brussels, from 17th to 19th June 2014.  SEMANCO in Manresa local news 2nd June 2014 The local newspaper Regio7 from Manresa has informed about the workshop “Ciutat i Energia”  organized  by FORUM in Manresa on May 29th 2014.  Ontology Data structuring for the ontological modelling of urban energy systems: The experience of the SEMANCO project 20th October 2014 The article, titled "Data structuring for the ontological modelling of urban energy systems: The experience  of the SEMANCO project", will be published in "Sustainable Cities and Society".

EECITIES energy service provider Workshops SEMANCO ENDS / EECITIES STARTS March 2015 After more than three years of continuous and intensive work, the SEMANCO project has been  successfully completed in February 2015. The project results have received the final qualification of  “excellent” by the experts’ committee of the FP7 programme, as a recognition to “a research project that  has fully achieved its objectives and technical goals and has even exceeded expectations”. The  exploitation of the technologies developed by SEMANCO continues with the platform EECITIES.
