Abstract

This paper describes a wireless location and occupancy system used to create house and user energetic profile systems. Both procedures will be used to raise consumers’ energy awareness in PV efficient building systems. Home energy consumption must be improved in order to evolve towards Net Zero Energy Buildings. Only the combine use of home PV grid- connected power systems with the active and responsible citizen’s engagement in addressing the carbon and energy reduction challenge will allow homes and buildings to become Net Zero Energy Buildings. The developed system is composed by two subsystems. The first one (designated as WiLOS) deals with the problem of users’ location inside a building, while the second (designated as HUEPS) uses the energy consumption of the building and the location information to create the users’ energetic profiles. Both subsystems are described and experimental data is presented in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.
