Malaga: Consumption energy controlled from home

A group of researchers from the Foundation Habitec (Parque Tecnológico de Andalucía) in Malaga, are working in the European project EnergyTIC. This is to develop a System of communication that allow each household to know--and thus take away a better control - your energy consumption. To do this they are launching a pilot test in 700 housing where users through internet or TDT will receive information on the amount of electricity and water use.


Not only you can see own electricity and water consumption , also can compare with the values of other individual or communities. Also provide other information that will enable known parameters that we are not doing a proper use of resources, and advice to do so in a way more efficient. An example: how much of the amount of our invoice for the electrical service corresponds to appliances left in standby (may be 12% of our total expenditure).

The initial phase will begin in March and April and will have a duration of three years. There will also be another similar experience in France and - probably - in the Netherlands.
