BeAware studies how ubiquitous information can turn energy consumers into active players by developing: 1. An open and capillary infrastructure sensing wirelessly energy consumption at appliance level in the home 2. Ambient and mobile interaction to integrate energy use profiles into users’ everyday life 3. Value added service platforms and models where consumers can act on ubiquitous energy information and energy producers and other stakeholders gain new business opportunities. BeAware is a collaborative research project co-funded by the European Union (FP7/ICT).

BeAware is an European R&D project related to residential energy awareness. Our goal is investigate how information acquired with wireless sensor in real-time can be used to increase energy awareness and decrease consumption. The three-year project started in Spring 2008 and consortium partners include university research units and companies working in energy sector in Itlay, Finland, and Sweden. BeAware is funded under the Seventh framework programme of the EC.
