SMARTGRID – Integrated buildings as active nodes

Advanced Distributed concentrators: Monitoring and Control at remote level of each installation independently or jointly, the permit management decentralized actions.

  • Integration of sectorized consumption of the entire building and all consuming and generating systems that permit it monitoring.
  • Integration of smart meters.
  • Installations control: air conditioning, ventilation, lighting, distributed generation resource and storage systems.

Building Global Manager: Controls the decisions on every installation in order to adjust the energy balance.

  • Applied artificial intelligence and data mining.
  • Prediction of consumption.
  • Automated suggestions for improvements.

Awareness interfaces: Visualization of energy consumption information to encourage users to the best use and good practice of the installations.
