Electrolux is one of the global leader that participate to a special project launched in Stockholm, where an urban development area, with 150 new apartments, will be equipped with state-of-the-art energy technologies and connected appliances, enabling residents to monitor and control their energy usage in real time. The object of this collaborative effort is to develop and demonstrate smarter ways of managing energy and help residents use energy more efficiently. The smart energy housing project in Stockholm is backed by a cross-industry consortium where the key contributors are Fortum, ABB, Ericsson, Electrolux and the Swedish Energy Agency.
The technology used in the 150 apartments is designed to enable Demand Response energy solutions. The residents will not only see their energy consumption visualized on a screen, they are also alerted on environmental factors and energy pricing. Appliances such as washing machines and dryers can thus be programmed to run at optimal times to minimize climate impact and/or to save energy costs.
