Integrated Domestic Energy Management

Objective

The IDEM project addresses the intersection between two IT application sectors which have far developed independently. These are the Home Systems sector, and the Energy supply sector. The project is therefore concerned with the use of IT and communications to implement various aspects of energy management, which is the main point of interest in this intersection.

By this we include:

- integration of multiple/alternative energy sources, in particular wind, solar and conventional supply, in order to optimise the use of electrical sources or overcome the problem of supplying the energy to isolated customers or areas with low power supply capacity, with special attention to energy conservation aspects;
- load and demand management at the utility level, to achieve objectives such as efficiency, profitability, improved customer's services and better environmental impact;
- load and energy management in the domestic environment, using the European Home Systems Specifications.

The project will take a systems approach to the use of information, communications and control technology in the overall management of the energy supply and use in the domestic environment. It will build on the results of earlier and current ESPRIT projects in the Home Systems area, using the components (IC) as well as the HS Specifications V 1.1 as well as subsystems, like the IDEA-TV device.
