Abstract

The high heterogeneity in smart house infrastructures as well as in the smart grid poses several challenges when it comes into developing approaches for energy efficiency. Consequently, several monitoring and control approaches are underway, and although they share the common goal of optimizing energy usage, they are fundamentally different at design and operational level. Therefore, we consider of high importance to investigate if they can be integrated and, more importantly, we provide common services to emerging enterprise applications that seek to hide the existing heterogeneity. We present here our motivation and efforts in bringing together the PowerMatcher, BEMI and the Magic system.
