Smart appliances in the smart home – The SAREF standard for buildings for the new electricity market | New standard for smart appliances in the smart home: getting buildings ready within the new electricity market design
Buildings and Smart Homes should be a key component in the electricity energy system, using website platforms and apps, which allow monitoring energy consumption of different devices into the Smart home and providing the customers information about how much energy they are using in real-time, from anywhere, this will facilitate, demand-response mechanism, to reduce peak demand and enhanced flexibility in electricity distribution grids, providing substantial benefits to all stakeholders.
SAREF is a new standard for smart appliances in smart homes, which allows exchanging energy related information interacting with every other Energy Management System.
The aim of this session, organised in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), is to disseminate how smart appliances using a shared model of consensus, SAREF (Smart Appliances REFerence), and dedicated software applications may contribute to promoting more sustainable energy use in households and neighbourhoods.
