Abstract

Getting cities and communities smarter is a strategic but also very complex process that involves several actors (e.g., governments, industries, scientific researchers) and addresses many challenges. Among these, energy efficiency and cost-saving are indispensable. Following this line, in this paper we propose a novel energy-aware management system, we name Energy Saving Smart Building (ESSB), for smart environments. More specifically, we present its experimental use at University of Messina in order to optimize the use of all the electrical equipments. The results are the reduction of energy consumptions and costs improving comfort and sustainability in smart office environments.
