INTELLIGENT SENSATION OF BEING AT HOME

The active buildings are ordinary buildings containing smart apartments that are out of the ordinary, equipped with technology that can put machines in stand-by mode or turn off lights when not in use. They are also equipped with active thermostats that can lower the temperature at night or when there is no-one home and smart domestic appliances and charging stations for electric cars that can be set to start up when electricity is cheapest and cleanest. All this is measured to enable the researchers to learn as much as possible and see what needs to be developed to make it even easier to live in an energy-efficient way.
