SESAME Demonstrator: Ontologies, Services and Policies for Energy Efficiency

By Slobodanka Tomic, Anna Fensel and Tassilo Pellegrini


The project SESAME uses semantic modeling and reasoning to support home owners and building managers in saving energy and in optimizing their energy costs while maintaining their preferred quality of living. We design a semantic layer for a technical solution that integrates smart metering, building automation and policy-based reasoning in order to offer an energy-optimization capability for the energy consumer and provider. Semantics plays a crucial role in binding information coming from the automation domain, energy management domain and in modeling user preferences and rules. Proposed concepts are implemented in an extensible demonstrator platform which provides a proof-ofconcept for an innovative technical solution. Categories and Subject Descriptor
