Energy optimizer for homes and buildings
Over the past decade, energy costs have increased and awareness of climate effects have become a part of our everyday lives. So far, however, the technology to help us manage and decrease energy usage have been disparate systems without the ability to assist each other in energy optimization.
In this project, we build an energy optimizer for homes and buildings. We leverage the IP-based Internet of things technology, which allows equipment from different vendors to interoperate. Based on IPv6 and web service technology, energy consuming devices communicate with a central energy optimizer that measures and controls energy usage and the efficiency thereof.
The project is a collaboration between SICS and SUST and funded by the Swedish energy authority.
