Underground transportation systems are big energy consumers, and have significant impacts on energy consumption at a regional scale. One third of a network’s energy is required for operating the subsystems of metro stations and surroundings, such as ventilation, vertical transportation and lightning. Although a relatively small percentage of energy can be saved with an optimal management of these subsystems, a large energy saving in absolute terms can be obtained. The objective of SEAM4US project is to develop advanced technologies for optimal and scalable control of metro stations that will generate at least 5% saving in non-traction electricity consumption in one year. The SEAM4US system, and the demonstrating pilot running on the Passeig de Gràcia Metro station in Barcelona, represent a significant contribution and drive to the opening of new markets by developing and prototyping new ICT-intensive approaches to energy saving for underground spaces, generally, and, more specifically, for the metro station market. This paper describes the solution approach of the intelligent energy management system at Passeig De Gràcia metro station of Barcelona and the expected achievable results.
