Here you have a new type of publications for the GreenSoul Project website. We are going to talk about other projects that fits in the GreenSoul main objectives – achieve higher energy efficiency in public buildings by altering the way people use energy consuming shared devices (lights, printers) and personal devices (personal pluggable appliances) – and about events that are related with the topics that command the GreenSoul spirit.

First we look for devices or projects that had a lot in common with GreenSoul mains objetives. In this case we recommend showing some interest in three projects that builds devices and technologies that will help users to decrease the energy consumption.

  • SmartH2O: That project develops an ICT platform for improving the management of urban and peri-urban water demand thanks to the integrated use of smart meters, social computation, and dynamic water pricing, based on advanced models of consumer behavior.
  • SunPort: It’s a solar device that measures the electricity you take from any wall outlet (at home or away) and matches it to solar available on the electric grid.
  • Vertuoz: A system for optimizing energy consumption that lets you balance the comfort of a building’s occupants with greater energy savings. It involves connected objects that are installed on site that send measurements via the internet to an artificial intelligence algorithm. The algorithm simultaneously accounts for the site’s condition, preset consumption objectives and parameterized constraints.

We also have two very interesting proposal of participation related with energy efficiency for the following months:

  • EUSEW 2017: From the 19 to the 25 of June will take place the Energy Week. Until the 31 of March is open the application period to participate in the conferences, networking sessions, … It’s important to have in mind that the Policy Conference is the most important European conference dedicated to sustainable energy policy issues. The sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas, while networking events forge alliances.

  • Viva Technology: Beyond its role as physical envelope, the buildings themselves are being transformed into producers of information and even energy producers. ENGIE is looking for innovative projects to better manage the information generated by such buildings and how to use it to improve their energy efficiency and the comfort of their occupants.
