Smart homes use advanced technology solutions to foster a more rational electricity consumption at home. The quality of life increases, more energy is saved and the natural resources are safeguarded. Interaction with the grid is a crucial element for the optimization of domestic consumption. Enel is actively working to provide customers with advanced devices that interact with the electricity grid on the one hand and with electric equipments in the home on the other.
The primary goal is to integrate each appliance in a domestic network, so that power consumption is optimized, improving the comfort and the environmental footprint.
Enel Distribuzione is a leader in developing ways to promote a rational use of electricity that respects the environment and improves the quality of life of its customers. The main initiatives are:
- Enel smart info, an innovative device, certified by Enel in July 2011, that establishes a direct connection between the grid and the customer and enables an easy access to the information recorded by their meter. Thanks to Enel smart Info, consumers can monitor their consumption to match their needs while saving on their electricity bills.
- Energy@Homeis a project to develop a platform for communication between domestic appliances, to improve energy efficiency and adjust the electricity consumption of the entire home to avoid peaks and overloads. The partners of Enel
Distribuzione in the project are Electrolux, Indesit and Telecom Italia.
