The aim of the 3GEnergy project was to develop an innovative global energy efficiency management platform for medium and large-scale installations in both the industrial and service sectors, enabling the management of energy from a multi-functional, multi-level perspective. multi-energy, multi-facility, multi-geography, multi-contract, multi-tariff and multi-technology.

As foreseen in the application, the platform was built on a set of power lines that characterize the development of corporate energy management systems, such as comprehensive management of energy resources from a carbon management perspective, intelligent consumption monitoring. and real-time equipment, in-depth understanding of consumption drivers and the potential impact of energy efficiency investments, integration with other corporate management systems (maintenance, technical management, quality, environment, production), the active involvement of all employees in the effort to improve efficiency and make available on different technology platforms (web, cloud, mobile) project objectives.


The promoter consortium of this project was led by SISTAVAC (now RACE), and the technical component linked to the development of the platform was coordinated by DREAMO and INESCTEC. In turn, SISTAVAC and SUSTENTEPOPEIA played a key role in building the technical requirements of the solution and in the successive tests carried out on the modules that comprise it, including the management of pilots installed at LIPOR and SISTAVAC.



The activities carried out under the project closely followed the planning carried out and submitted on application, namely:

1. Solution Components and Architecture
2. Analysis and specification of solution modules
3. Development of solution modules
4. Test and Verify Solution Modules
5. Pilot Implementation and Global Solution Validation
6. Dissemination of knowledge and results
7. Project management (global and administrative coordination)

The main deliverables produced under the project were those associated with activity 2 (reports with specifications), activity 3 (software modules) and activity 4 (commercial products - modules). Also noteworthy are the deliverables 5.4 (3GEnergy solution technical report) and 5.5 (3GEnergy Complete Software), which received input from the implementation experience of the three project pilots.

Given the results achieved, it can be stated that the overall objectives of the project were fully achieved, as shown by the tests and trials carried out under the three developed pilots.

In scientific terms, the publication of a master’s thesis based on the SISTAVAC pilot is empirically based, and a scientific paper that is being finalized for publication in one of the journals referenced in the candidature.
Of the dissemination activities carried out, highlight the existence of a project dissemination website ( and the dissemination of the project at an international fair, in particular at the Future Resources Fair in Birmingham, provided by 2GO OUT. Consulting through a rented stand and various dissemination materials.
