The homes of the future are intelligent, energy-efficient and energy producing buildings.
Vast saving potentials in home automation and smart metering
A building with intelligent sensors and metering has the potential to save up to 60% of electricity use through lighting control, presence detection and intelligent shading. Another 25% can be found in heating and 45% savings from energy cooling such as individual room control, presence detection and sun shading.
The benefits of a Smart home
A smart home can use and produce resources intelligently. Incorporating sensors for lighting, climate control, smart metering and energy management enables a communication system to control production and consumption of resources. Incorporating intelligent buildings into the energy system – grid-connected energy-producing buildings – saves energy costs and reduces CO2 emissions.
Think smart by thinking Denmark
Future developments will continue to optimize intelligent interaction between the many different electrical components and installations in a building, enabling the system and costumer to react to fluctuations in price, supply etc.. Denmark has already installed remotely-read electricity meters for 75% of total electricity consumption, primarily in industries, and in 2014 the meters will be rolled out to households as well.
