The ‘brains’ of the entire system, this control system whose design was led by IMP, Serbia, co-ordinates the inputs of all of the renewable energy and energy efficiency components. The system is weather and climate tuned so that energy requirements, heating and cooling, can be determined in advance so that energy can be stored in the form required for the buildings users. While there is a user-interface that facilitates user customisation, it is expected that the most users will accept the benefits of an automatically tuned climate control for their building of a steady 19 degrees centigrade all year round.
