On November 16, 2017 the members of the MERIDA project (Marijana Zekic-Susac, Hrvoje Krstic and Sasa Mitrovic) visited the Center for Energy Sector and Investment Monitoring (CEI) in Zagreb and had a meeting with CEI employees Josip Kobescak and Nina Suman, who oversee the SMIV (System for measurement, monitoring and verification of energy saving).
It was agreed at the meeting that the CEI will enable the project team to use the data on building reconstructions from the SMIV system, providing the confidentiality that will be arranged by signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement. This is the second agency the MERIDA project establishes collaboration with, and the data collected from the SMIV system will enable the inclusion of building reconstruction variables into predictive models for estimating energy consumption and savings in public buildings that are being created within the MERIDA project.
