Theo Rieswijk, Innovator Control Systems at Priva will be talking about Less Energy and Better Comfort Utility Buildings with Sensor Networks
The energy use of a utility building is strongly related to the comfort of its occupants. Furthermore, an increase in comfort for the occupants contributes significantly to their productivity. Wouldn’t it be nice to save energy and at the same time to improve the comfort of the occupants? An important enabler for solving this challenge is the use of wireless sensor networks. Priva and NXP participate in the UCER project, a research project within the TKI Energy subsidy scheme to address this opportunity. Other consortium partners in project UCER are: Vabi, Kropman, TNO, Maastricht University, Delft University of Technology and Eindhoven University of Technology.
