Abstract

This paper presents a technical system, which uses the non-intrusive appliance load monitoring (NIALM) method. The solution enables the end user to observe the electricity consumption of the individual appliances. By dividing electricity consumption to individual appliances, it improves the users’ understanding of the overall energy use of the building. This way the owner of the building is able to intervene better with the energy consumption of the building. Observation of the electricity appliances is performed in a web application in a user interface calendar view.
