SEAS: Smart Energy Aware Systems

SEAS project will address the problem of inefficient and unsustainable energy consumption, which is due to a lack of sufficient means to control, monitor, estimate and adapt energy usage of systems versus the dynamic usage situations and circumstances influencing the energy usage.

SEAS project objective is to enable interworking of energy, ICT and automation systems at consumption sites, and to introduce dynamic and fine grained ICT -based solutions to control, monitor and estimate energy consumption. Additional aim is to explore business models and solutions that will enable energy market participants to incorporate micro-grid environments and active customers. The project objective includes introduction of new digital services enabling proactive adaptation of consumption behaviour to the changes in usage, energy costs, availability of energy sources and weather/climate/season, while making the stakeholders (e.g. utilities and consumers) aware of the changes and their impact. The new digital services from SEAS project will be aimed for the building and micro-grid environments, and for their related stakeholders. SEAS project results will enable considerable increase in energy efficiency of buildings and facilitate deployment of renewable energy micro-grids, contributing towards meeting the environmental, economic and sustainability challenges of energy consumption.

The main goal of the SEAS project is to research, develop and demonstrate a new SEAS Knowledge Model and SEAS Information Exchange Platform for energy information representation, processing and exchange between energy systems, automation systems, ICT based digital services and all related stakeholders. The main goal includes development and demonstration of ICT -based solutions, which are based on the SEAS knowledge model and information exchange platform, validating the concept of smart energy aware systems in building and micro-grid environments.
