Thursday 14 March installers and energy companies from the TDI500 consortium came together at Essent in Den Bosch to take the next steps towards the goal of installing 500 heatpumps extra per day. TNO has serveral roles in this project. From our team, Jack Verhoosel, Klaas Andries de Graaf and Jeanine de Graaf are working on an interoperability solution: getting performance data from the different heatpump installations to the inhabitants and installers. They already formulated a Heatpump Common Dataset. As you can see in the picture, this dataset was intensively discussed by the manufacturers during the working day in Den Bosch. Also the draft version of the SAREF based ontology was discussed. It was very well received and led to agreement of the manufacturers to make their data available. With this data, TNO can develop a proof of concept in which the Knowledge Engine will orchestrate the data exchange in such a way that performance data from heatpumps of different manufacturers can be made accessible via one portal in a unified manner.
