Approximately 40% of Europe’s total energy consumption still stem from small buildings and groups of buildings. Energy management approaches available today however come at a price of several hundred Euro per managed device.
SmartCoDe is developing an approach based on highly integrated microelectronic components, its target is to reduce the price from above mentioned hundreds of Euros to approximately 3 Euro per managed device. At the edaWorkshop 2012 in Hannover a new video clip was announced that explains the approach also to the non-technical user. The video clip is available at the SmartCoDe home page and on YouTube.
The edaWorkshop is a major German EDA event that offers prime opportunities for the publication and the discussion of EDA research results. The well-balance attendance from industry and research is an optimal opportunity for knowledge exchange between industry and research.
