>Saving Energy through ICT
The European Commission exhibition booth in the "Smarter Living" area showed
results of European collaborative projects the EU is financing from its research
as well as from its policy support programme.
Visitors were able to interact with a scale-model of a neighbourhood (buildings and homes) equipped with real sensors and actuators, an interactive game guided visitors to make control decisions in order to save energy.
Visitors were able to interact with the energy management system to place orders and see its impact on energy consumption. To complement these research prototypes the booth included the smart meters and the energy management systems that are being deployed actually in social houses (e.g. in Moulins, France and in Linz, Austria).
