Context-Aware Sensor-Actuator Networks for Energy-Efficient Buildings
Reducing energy consumption and subsequently CO2 emissions is necessary in key sectors of the economy such as buildings and construction, in the public sector, in cities and urban areas.
Three major aspects can be considered for reducing energy consumption:
- Self-production of renewable energy sources (e.g., solar, wind).
- Reducing energy consumption by ICT infrastructure and by developing less-energy- consuming methods and protocols.
- Reducing energy consumption in all applications by integrating ICT concepts.
