About the Project


DELTA Project > Pilots

The DELTA solution is tested at pilot sites in both the UK and Cyprus, and pre-piloted at the CERTH/ITI nZEB Smart Home in Greece.

What is the purpose of the pilots?

  • Demonstrate the seamless integration and interoperability of the DELTA technology with existing energy networks;
  • Involve small and medium sized customers efficiently through demand response strategies;
  • Evaluate and validate the DELTA solution and associated service offering and business models;
  • Estimate the potential energy cost savings and emissions reductions through demand response efforts on the pilot premises.
Moor House

UK Pilot – Residential and Commercial Buildings

The UK pilot comprises of two focused pilot sites representing the commercial and residential sectors:

  • Moor House (Central London, UK)
  • Woodland Grove Estate (Greenwich, UK)
  • Tom Smith Close Estate (Greenwich, UK)

Moor House is a commercial office building located in Central London hosting approximately 4,100 employees and covering a total area of 43,300 m2.

Woodland Grove Estate in Greenwich is a residential estate comprising of 110 residential units distributed over 5 low rise buildings.

Tom Smith Close Estate in Greenwich is a residential estate of 3 independent buildings. Each building is 4 stories high and hosts 20 flats.

Cyprus campus

Cyprus Pilot – University of Cyprus Campus

Of the 17 tertiary buildings on the University of Cyprus campus, 4 participate in the DELTA pilot:

  • Library
  • Administration building with rooftop solar electricity generation
  • Faculty of Economics and Management
  • Residential student halls with associated solar park

These 4 buildings represent a heterogenous set of services, functional requirements and user experiences.

Pre-pilot lab testing – nZEB Smart Home of CERTH/ITI

Extensive lab-testing prior to the UK and Cypriot pilot is conducted in the nZEB Smart Home in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The CERTH/ITI nZEB Smart Home is a rapid prototyping and novel technologies demonstration infrastructure resembling a real domestic building. As the first Smart near-Zero Energy Building in Greece, it combines enhanced construction materials and intelligent ICT solutions creating a future-proof, sustainable and active testing, validating and evaluating ecosystem.
