Extremadura

The pilot site Extremadura consists of 41 buildings.

The eSESH services in this pilot site are aiming at overall savings of electricity.The Junta de Extremadura will present costs and pollution studying consumption data in order to detect unsuitable tenant behaviours or inefficient systems in social houses. Each user will have access to an internet portal, where he/she could be able to check the provided information, specific advices and tips for their own situation about energy consumption.

Data will be collected by the electricity trading company (CIDE), which will provide them to users through numerical data and graphical on the website. Users can access them through a password to ensure data privacy. Junta will start storing the electricity consumptions in order to get data control process. At the beginning of the data control, a name and password - allocated to each participating tenant - will allow the access to their private data. Afterwards, the Junta will provide another link in which users can inquire about their customised behaviour and the way they can save electricity.

A further service is a study of the electric bill and consumption to identify possible improvements. The options are limited by the electric rates for homes in Spain but one example is to optimize the power that users have contracted and thus their monthly payments will be reduced.
