We found an interesting thought on another Smart City model called Open Energy in the open code blog from Bernardo.
What is Open Energy?
This Smart City philosophy offers the creation of an energy consumption visualization system with the aim to save energy in households, on a small scale, as well as in industry.
Each person would know how much energy each of his electrical appliances uses and could regulate that consumption in an easy and simple way.
This system is based on two technologies, the first one is the Energy Monitoring Device which helps us to monitor the energy spending. The second one is Open Energy Visualization, which is, like its name indicates, a consumption visualization system for mobile devices.
This is undoubtedly a system that would help to know how much we are using and reduce our energy consumption.
