Résumé: The main objectives of MIGRID are: leveraging renewable energy usage, and promoting energy-efficient systems. It is meant to leverage these venues via the integration of renewable energy sources into smart buildings, and via the promotion of an energy-efficient management system based on “context-awareness” whereby electrical appliances’ status, consumption, and energy production are tracked and controlled in a real-time mode. Three major research issues will be addressed:
• Renewable energy integration and demand/response control strategies for energy balance.
• Context-awareness and data gathering/processing.
• ICT for connecting/networking the different building components.
Consortium: AUI (PI), UIR UH, GWU
