The REViSITE vision is aimed for more transparency in identifying ICTs that can positively impact on energy efficiency, by categorising where ICT adoption and development should be focused, based on anticipated level of impact.

Multi-disciplinary ICT4EE Vision (REViSITE)

The value of the cross sectoral approach to the sectors is based on the premise of abstracting sector specific issue to a more general issue, identify possible general ICT solutions, and then focus on adopting or adapting as a sector specific solution. The SMARTT Taxonomy was used to categorise ICTs, aligning them to a generalised life cycle that is recognisable to specific sectors. ICTs need to focus on: Specification & design, Materialisation, Automation & operation support, Resource & process management, Technical integration and Trading and transactional management. REViSITE can more clearly identify ‘what’ ICTs should be adopted or developed, 'where' they should be applied and ‘how’ they are likely to impact on sustainability. These ICTs are foreseen to contribute to the realisation of the vision where:
