Abstract

This paper addresses a bottom-up approach for energy management in buildings. Future smart cities will need smart citizens, thus developing an interface to connect humans to their energy usage becomes a necessity. The goal is to give a touch of energy to occupants’ daily behaviours and activities and making them aware of their decisions’ consequences in terms of energy consumption, its cost and carbon footprint. Second, to allow people directly interacting and controling their living spaces, that means individual contributions to their feeling of comfort. Finally, a software solution to keep track of all personal energy related events is suggested and its possible features are explained.
