1 Forum Green & Connected Cities 10 & 11 Décembre Parlement Européen (Strasbourg) Smart Energy Management at Home Alvaro ROS PENCHE

2 Why do energy bills keep raising? Primary and economic factors Consequences Population growth and higher social welfare Shortage on traditional energy sources + higher imports Low profitability in renewable energy in the short-term + higher rejection to polluting energy production High increase on Energy demand Rise on energy tariffs Power industry needs efficient management solutions in homes & buildings

3 Generation & Demand Balance: the key problem Electricity is not storable Instantaneous balance is needed to meet production and demand Source: Red Eléctrica de España

4 Demand of energy in winter Source: Red Eléctrica de España Demand is constant along the day Higher demand during the morning Higher demand during the evening

5 Load Curve How society demands energy on winter? System peaks on mornings and evenings Source: Red Eléctrica de España

6 Our future is… Demand side challenges Reduce load peaks Flexibilization of Demand Consumers need to be EFFICIENT Smart Metering Smart Appliances Smart Grid Electrical Vehicles DENISE Project led by ENDESA to design the future Intelligent-demand-response electrical network Home Systems is in charge of in-home displays & automation

7 Before we arrive there… Key drivers for energy saving on the user side INFORMATION Monitoring of energy consumption helps modify habits RECOMMENDATION Contract less power without losing comfort SENSITIVE PRICES Use off-peak tariffs offered by power suppliers Up to 5%-15% savings in consumption Up to 50% savings in power contract Up to 45% savings in tariff cost AUTOMATION Turn on and off appliances automatically to take advantage of these features without even noticing

8 3 features for smart and efficient energy management at home or office –ENERGY MONITOR LCD Display for monitoring and configuration, membrane keypad Monitoring of consumption and power in /h and W Monitoring on PC via Bluetooth –LOAD CONTROLLER Rationalize your consumption, from 3,3 to 14,5 Kw Maximeter (maximum load measurement) Cascade, cyclic or prioritary modes 8 X10 outputs (PLC) and 2 relay outputs (1A) –SCHEDULE PROGRAMMING Take advantage of off-peak lower tariffs Weekly schedule programming Our solution for today… ecobox: smart energy saving

9 Monitor energy consumption on LCD display ecobox user interface: –LCD Display for monitoring and configuration –Membrane keypad –Monitoring of consumption and power in /h and W –Direct control of appliances through X10 automation

10 Monitor energy consumption on your PC or Netbook EcoSoft user interface: –Maximeter (maximum load measurement) –Instant consumption –CO2 emissions savings –Partial and total consumption in W and /h –Partial and total consumption with off- peak tariff in W and /h –Off-peak tariff simulation –Statistics: diary, monthly and yearly consumption

11 Monitor energy consumption on your PC or Netbook

12 Monitor energy consumption on your TV set In&Out TV

13 Monitor energy consumption on your Smartphone Smartphone App coming soon…

14 Load control to save energy What is Load Controlling? Allows to limit maximum power used at home by automatically disconnecting selected circuits or individual appliances, without losing comfort –Less power contracted = less cost in energy bill –Automatic restoration of loads when consumption lowers

15 –Before load controlling… »Current contract = 10,35 Kw »Energy use: electric heating & water, washing machine, dishwasher, spin dryer, electric oven… »Main Circuit Breaker goes off with higher consumption –After load controlling… »Power contract = 5,75 Kw »Same loads but rationalized, for instance, heating and water may turn off momentarily, making the most of thermic inertia, while other appliances are on Contract less power RELEVANT SAVINGS IN POWER CONTRACTING 7,56 /month (90,72 /year)

16 Output 230 VAC Max 16 A On/Off 230 V. 50hz, existing power line A1, A2, A3.. A Heating Module adress House Code X-10 protocol Other X-10 module formats Automation for Load Control & Off-peak Tariff use

17 Your savings help our environment ECOBOX helps reduce energy consumption seamlessly and automatically It also helps reduce carbon footprint by lowering household CO2 emissions, thus taking care of the environment and favoring sustainable development

18 Example of savings: Household with 4 members and 100m2, with electric heating & DHW, in WINTER, center of Spain, from October to April Your savings help our environment RELEVANT SAVINGS ON YOUR ENERGY BILL You can lower your monthly expense from 285 up to 128

19 ecobox = smart energy manager Advantages for end users Monitoring and efficient energy management Great savings in the energy bill Helps prevent unpleasant MCB disconnections Easy installation Upgradeable Compatible with X-10 home automation Cost simulation with off-peak tariffs

20 Advantages for the power industry Obtaining of load curve via Bluetooth Hook product to help building consumer loyalty or catch new consumers Redeemable investment by consumers Future features (2010) with residential gateways + In & Out TV: GUI from the living room TV to promote and advising customers on saving energy ecobox = smart energy manager

21 In summary…

22 Home Systems Founded in 1993 in Madrid, Spain Home & Building automation specialists More than homes automated 150 installers nationwide R&D projects –Casactiva internet control software –Eyetouch touchscreen –Ecobox Partners of Endesa, Prosegur and other main players in the spanish scene…
