InBetween Digital Platform and Mobile App identify energy wastes, teach how to conserve energy and motivate people to act

We are glad to announce that after three years since InBetween project (funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 768776) started, the Project Consortium succeeded in developing a set of smart solutions for buildings which allow to induce energy efficient lifestyles by simultaneously assisting users to identify energy wastes, learn how they can conserve energy and motivate them to act. 

Under RINA coordination and thanks to the collaboration INSTITUT MIHAJLO PUPIN (Project Technical Coordinator), ACCIONA CONSTRUCCION, the AUSTRIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, DEVELCO PRODUCTS, the INTERDISCIPLINARY CENTER (IDC) HERZLIYA, VILOGIA and SONNENPLATZ GROSSCHONAU, InBetween cloud-based platform and a mobile application, two interfaces for the same platform,were developed.

InBetween Digital Platform and Mobile App offer advanced energy services, such as: 

  • An energy performance evaluation and benchmarking service (EPEBS) which take into account three main energy analytics (current consumption, occupancy, weather conditions) and uses competition as a driver to promote energy-efficiency behaviours
  • An Energy dispatch optimization service (EDOS) which monitors users’ energy consumption, determines the optimal time in which an appliance in a specific home should be activated in order to minimize costs and optimizes any potential presence of renewable energy sources like solar panels or wind turbines. 
  • A Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) service, which provides feedback to household residents on the way they spend their energy and, more precisely, on which home appliances are in use by connecting smart meters (e.g. sensors for measuring the energy consumed) with every appliance at home.
  • A Real Time Home Monitoring Service (RTHMS), which runs without stopping 24/7 and in close-to-real-time analyzes events that pertain to energy conservation, security and health-related issues, and fires notification through the mobile application which are meant to motivate the end user to adopt more energy-efficient, safe & healthy behaviors .
