On 12th July, 2023, the Valencia City Council's Citizen School of Energy Renovation organized educational visits to a building site in Valencia, specifically at EBENTO's location on Avenida de Cataluña. The purpose of these visits is to provide firsthand experience and knowledge on energy renovation.

Rapid urbanization brings increased challenges such as overcrowding, environmental pollution and related health problems. However, evolving technologies have created new, rich sources of data for energy consumption, environmental sensing and new management tools. This data is now being used to manage rapid urbanization and create smarter cities, helping cities make data-driven decisions. Damal Redes, Milesight's partner and a contractor for Fundació València Clima i Energia (VCI), has successfully deployed IoT solutions in Valencia, creating practical IoT solutions with promising results.

The Ebento project, launched in September 2023 in Valencia, is an innovative initiative aimed at enhancing the energy efficiency of buildings. The project focuses on pilot testing new thermal insulation techniques in two twin residential buildings to validate their performance. VCI spearheads this project with a goal to involve a broad spectrum of stakeholders, including public institutions and utilities, to foster a collaborative approach towards sustainable urban development. This project is developed in collaboration with three other cities, including Athens (Greece), Tallin (Estonia) and Manchester (UK).

About Valencia, the European Green Capital 2024

"Valencia has earned the Green Capital title because of its ambitious sustainability strategy, and it has learned from lessons in the past. For many decades, the city has been driven forward by a bold civic movement that sustains genuine change. People are Valencia's asset. This year will enhance the experiences of citizens and support them even more in delivering the change we all need achieve for a better future.”- Virginijus Sinkevičius, Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries,

The Ebento project employs advanced IoT solutions from Milesight to monitor and analyze the performance of newly implemented insulation technologies. 48 AM103L 3-in-1 IAQ Sensor and 4 EM500-CO2 Outdoor CO2 Sensor are strategically placed to collect data on thermal efficiency, which is crucial for assessing the effectiveness of the insulation under various environmental conditions.

Milesight sensors monitor various parameters such as temperature differences inside vs. outside and humidity levels. This data is crucial for assessing the thermal properties of the insulation. The sensors are connected to a central system that aggregates the data, allowing for real-time performance analysis and immediate feedback on insulation efficacy.

“During the tour, EBENTO partners (Fundació València Clima i Energia and ETRA) introduced the visitors to the sensors that will be installed in these houses to monitor temperature, humidity, and air quality. The residents showed a keen interest in witnessing how the sensors operate, and event participants gained a deeper understanding of the building renovation process and the EU's financial support to enhance energy efficiency in buildings. Some participants also expressed concerns about the challenges of convincing condominiums to invest in such renovation initiatives.”
