According to statistics and future prospects in the next
few years world-wide energy consumption will increase significantly. Therefore not only more energy efficient technologies but also more extensive energy saving concepts
have to be realized. We have developed an ”implicit interaction” based power saving concept, which automatically
schedules and controls energy consumers depending on the recognized activities of users. Moreover, dynamically
schedulable power consumption loads are shifted in
time, so as to make use of the cheapest energy prices without compromising user comfort. In order to calculate the
potential savings of this concept we have implemented a
simulation framework executing energy consumption models
on a city scale, which allows for more complex scenarios
than being restricted to some devices or buildings only.
Both the framework architecture as well as large scale energy consumption simulations are presented. Simulation experiments give strong evidence for our implicit energy management concept as a promising source of energy savings.
