Bristol’s successful role as part of the 3e Houses European project is being celebrated on Monday 20th May at the start of a week –long showcase of activities across Europe. 3e Houses was designed to help residents in social housing reduce their energy consumption through use of ICT and SMART metering systems and was developed in partnership by the Future Cities team at Bristol City Council, Toshiba Research Europe, IP Performance and Knowle West Media Centre.
The Create Ecohome will host an ‘open house’ event demonstrating the 3e Houses technology that was trialled in 3 groups of homes in Bristol. The Ecohome was chosen as a ‘test bed’ that simulated a real home environment in order to prepare the system for roll out and will continue to run the equipment in future.
The event will be an opportunity to see the equipment in operation and learn about the technical solution – including the visual interface developed by Knowle West Media Centre – enabling residents to monitor their energy consumption in real time. Members of the UK development team will be on hand to discuss the benefits and the challenges of using smart metering technology in the domestic environment, with the aim of reducing energy consumption in social housing.
