Project Title

Low Cost Indoor Occupancy and Climate Monitoring System For Energy Conservation

Web Abstract

Air-conditioning load contributes significantly to the energy/electricity consumption by large public institutions, including educational institutions, hospitals, public libraries, government offices, commercial establishments etc. Efficient operation of central Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) Systems, can translate into significant savings in energy and costs. Effective monitoring of the occupancy and underlying climatic conditions is required to provide appropriate air conditioning. The main objective of this proposal is to develop a cost-effective monitoring system using programmable hardware paired with platform agnostic web interface to provide actionable user/operator feedback and reporting. This would enable identification, implementation and measurement of impact of energy conservation measures in operation of an air-conditioning system.
