The Energy for a Green Society (ERG) project has received funding to develop wireless sensor networks to monitor and control energy consumption in buildings. The three-year and €25.7 million project will develop wireless sensor technology that can be commercialized in order to retrofit buildings with this smart technology.
The effort ties with the European 2020 climate targets, with goals to reduce carbon emissions. The effort teams research institutions and private sector companies to collaborate on the problem of emissions from buildings.
The program is part of the European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC) initiatives to award grants for public-private partnerships around nanoelectronics.
