In the Smart Cities project Empower Citizens the recommendation system for increasing comfort "Easy Energy Saver" was developed, which pursues the following goals:
Raising awareness of the energy requirements for heating and cooling
- Increase in comfort and quality of life
- Avoidance of mold growth
- Reduction of energy costs
"Easy Energy Saver” aims to monitor the pilot application of the recommendation system in several buildings.
In times of COVID-19, ventilation has become more important. Although proper ventilation is not complicated, healthy ventilation behavior must be learned and anchored in the routine.
The "Easy Energy Saver" is a recommendation system that uses visual and acoustic signals to stimulate ventilation, as well as shading and heating. The system works passively - the person ultimately decides whether to follow the recommendations. The recommendations should result in a learning effect that enables people to use their apartments in an energetically optimal way, taking comfort and health aspects into account.
