Recent years have brought up the necessity for a smart, reliable and secure grid, which maximizes renewable energy resources usage and reduces its environmental impact. Moreover, industry, enterprises, households and cities face the challenge of reducing electricity costs. However, the sustainable approach is to reschedule their electricity demand profiles in order to dynamically match the production.
Synaisthisi platform, through its services, e.g. Renewable Energy usage incentivisation, enables Smart Grid technologies and engage consumers in a more active participation in the monitoring and management of energy usage. Consumers can therefore learn how to conserve electricity and reschedule specific tasks according to the availability of cheaper and greener energy sources, contributing at the same time to the system's stability and the reduction of "greenhouse" gas emissions.
Additionally, automatic functionalities can be added, like switching off of specific appliances when occupants are absent, or controlling ambient conditions before occupants' arrival, improving the quality of life and minimizing energy waste.
