Project Kick Off: SEmantic SmArt Metering – Enablers for Energy Efficiency
Recently we held a kick off meeting at FTW Vienna for our Smart Metering project called SeSaMe. This acronym stands for SEmantic SmArt Metering and adresses the use of computational semantics to improve energy consumption in terms of efficiency and personal awareness. (It has nothing to do with the well known triple store from Aduna, but maybe we will use it.)
The high-level societal goal of the project SeSaMe is to facilitate home owners or building managers in saving energy within their environments and in optimizing their energy costs, while actively controlling and maintaining their preferred quality of living. Therefore an international consortium of five partners was formed bringing together various competencies and fields of expertise.
We have set up a project blog, where you will find more information on the topic soon.
