Abstract

In order to achieve higher energy efficiency in buildings, it is essential that devices be consciously used. The GreenSoul project aims to build energy awareness to users and help them change their energy consumption behavior. This will be succeeded by changing the way people use energy consuming devices and by embedding intelligence in the devices themselves, which could autonomously decide about their operation mode and energy consumption. GreenSoul research and innovation focus on the reduction of the energy consumption above 20%, within the domain of public buildings or buildings of public use. GreenSoul forecasts that it is possible to surpass this target providing that a true collaboration among people, devices and buildings is achieved by putting in place the range of technological contributions set forward by this project.
