SPORTE.3Q targets the endemic energy performance gap in existing and new built facilities, and aims to develop and deploy innovative intelligent performance management solutions for Sports facilities in Qatar, with a focus on stadium, and their local ecosystem, that factor in energy and water use and their induced water-energy nexus, with the objective to reduce energy demand by up to 30% and water consumption by up to 10%, while achieving a wide range of societal and environmental benefits.

These performance management tools will build upon the Cardiff University CUSP platform (fig. below). CUSP is a TRL 7 platform that can manage, store, contextualise and process-built environment data ranging from building to city level data sources. It has previously been applied with great success for building and district level energy and optimisation in the UK.

SPORTE.3Q targets the endemic energy performance gap in existing and new built facilities (Petri et al., 2014, Yuce et al., 2015), and aims to develop and deploy innovative intelligent performance management solutions for Sports facilities in Qatar, with a focus on stadium, and their local ecosystem, that factor in energy and water use and their induced water-energy nexus, with the objective to reduce energy demand by up to 30% and water consumption by up to 10%, while achieving a wide range of societal and environmental benefits.

To deliver on this vision, this project will develop innovative, intelligent performance management tools that consider; (a) energy, (b) water use and (c) the nexus of the two. These performance management tools will leverage state of the art optimisation, simulation and data-driven modelling techniques, extended to support the consideration of the energy-water nexus and the specificities of stadiums and sports facilities.  In addition to tackling the fundamental challenges of energy and water use and the energy-water nexus, they will also maintain and enhance wellbeing and health and safety for the users of sports facilities, enabling a new relationship and business model structure between facility managers and energy and water providers.
