The Energy Awareness project aims to investigate and solve those issues connected with energy saving and optimization of the energy package within a district by experimenting monitoring tools and aware energy management systems through ICT technologies. This goal is clearly achievable through the optimization of the local energy consumption entities as well as through the optimization of the distributed energy production plants (e.g. renewable energy sources) inside the considered district. Major attention of the project will be focused on those districts related with the public sector. The project does not intend to develop new technologies from scratch, but to exploit the already consolidated assets available in ISMB and in Telecom Italia. Among the assets available in ISMB we may include some prototype systems for smart metering, their remote control, middleware for the integration and management of heterogeneous sensors, data gathering tools and processing of energy measurements based on cloud computing. The Energy Awareness project will last one year.
