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