What is Smart Energy?
ZigBee Smart Energy is a ZigBee Alliance public profile that defines a technology platform for monitoring and actively managing energy consumption at the end-user level. This profile identifies eight device types that work cooperatively to report energy consumption by individual users and allow utilities to manage peak loads directly, increasing efficiency, and ultimately allowing consumers to adopt more sensible energy usage habits.
Why Smart Energy?
Solving the energy problems of today goes beyond clean methods of energy production. More than ever, utilities and consumers are looking for ways to reduce energy use, limit waste and increase overall efficiency. Smart Energy technologies make this possible by enabling utilities to directly monitor and manage energy use and empower consumers with individual consumption information.
