Salford University focuses on energy monitoring with SenzaNET
Salford Energy House, built by the Salford University in Manchester, provides a unique testing and development facility in which leading researchers can work collaboratively with the industry to develop and test new technologies and solutions to improve the energy efficiency of existing projects and processes.
The house was built in a controlled laboratory environment with climate control. Furthermore, it was built in traditional Salford style from 1915, by recovered materials. It reflects 20% (5.4 million) of the current housing stock in England.
The Salford University chose with SenzaNET a unique wireless mesh networking technology in Europe for intelligent energy metering of E-Senza Technologies. This allows scientists to monitor and analyze the data from a series of planned experiments in and around the Salford Energy House.
With the sensors and adapters of E-Senza Technologies temperature, humidity and pressure as well as water and electricity consumption in Salford Energy House can be monitored continuously. The values are measured, analyzed and managed. In addition, they provide valuable information on energy efficiency improvement.
