Wireless Sensor Networks to Enable the Passive House - Deployment Experiences
Finding solutions for the current period of climate change or “global warming” is possibly the most serious and pressing challenge faced by scientists and the wider community today. Although governments are beginning to act, a community wide approach is needed with a large proportion of individuals engaging to reduce energy consumption that depends on fossil fuels. The Passive House (or Passivhaus) standard is an ultra-low energy standard for building construction and design that aims at dramatically reducing energy consumption in the home. While appropriate for new builds, this standard may be difficult to achieve with existing buildings. In this work, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology is examined as an enabling tool to support rapid progression to improved energy efficiency and increased comfort for existing buildings. As with participatory urban sensing, the home occupant could, in the future, take on the role of scientist; developing an awareness of trouble spots in the ...
