Automation and user interaction schemes for home energy management - a combined approach
This paper presents the development framework for an energy management platform that is being developed within the AnyPLACE project. In order to ensure that end-users become active participants in services like demand response, a combined approach is necessary in terms of monitoring, automation, and user interfacing. The success in engaging the end-user, as the centerpiece of the energy management challenge, is vital in taking advantage of a more efficient use of energy, as it is shown in this paper. The proposed framework can be run in a single board computer.
