Guide to Energy Management Protocols

This report is a guide to ‘application layer’ communications protocols used for energy management, such as those used to facilitate intelligent efficiency and demand flexibility.

Standardisation for Smart Devices

This report highlights the most relevant standards in areas such as measurement of energy consumption of smart devices, and communication protocols for smart devices.

Interoperability

The objective of this study is to gain a better understanding on the issue of (a lack of) device interoperability and the resultant impact of this on Intelligent Efficiency and Demand Flexibility

Classification of digitalisation technologies for electric motor driven systems

This report by EMSA provides a classification of different digitalisation technologies applied for motor systems. The following technologies are analysed: sensors, Internet of Things, intelligent control, data analytics, real-time monitoring, artificial intelligence, digital twins, cloud based services, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, robotics, drones.

Harnessing IoT for Energy Benefits

This report examines the landscape of residential IoT products and the functions within those products that can be leveraged to yield energy benefits. These functions include monitoring via on- board sensors and internal or external data feeds, and controls that can reside within or external to the product. We examine the extent to which products possess these functions today, the energy benefits products can achieve with those functions, and the appropriateness of adding additional functions to achieve additional energy benefits.

Policy Guidance for Smart, Energy-Saving Consumer Devices

This report provides considerations for policy makers to encourage ‘smart’ consumer devices which save energy and provide demand flexibility. It includes key findings for the prioritisation of consumer devices and policy recommendations.

Policy Brief – Upstream Consequences from Connected Devices

Connecting devices to the internet has profound implications for energy use, in three areas: Digitalisation, Wasted Energy and Upstream Consequences. This policy brief covers the third topic – Upstream Consequences. This policy brief is based on two EDNA reports: Total Energy Model for Connected Devices and Intelligent Efficiency for Data Centres & Wide Area Networks
