EUA launch Smart Homes Group

Leading trade association, the Energy and Utilities Alliance, EUA has launched a Smart Homes Group. The new group brings together members from across EUA's five divisions that all have a commercial interest in the development of Smart Homes, Smart Grids and the Internet of Things.

Stewart Clements, EUA Divisional Director, said "The concept of the ‘Internet of Things' is not a new one and we recognise that we need to understand the detail and undoubtable impact. Figures from networking specialist, Cisco, suggest there will be 25 million devices connected to the internet by 2020. We have already seen the emergence of apps that allow home owners to remotely control their heating and as end users demand more benefit from smart technologies we as an industry need to be ready.

 At EUA we have members that are involved in the development and manufacture of everything from smart meters to smart heating appliances and so this new group will look at how we can improve interfaces and interoperability to give greater control to individuals to manage their environment, exactly as they require.

It is also likely that the drive for more efficient buildings and carbon reduction will give rise to legislation. Energy and technology have changed the way buildings are both constructed and managed and we need to be ahead of the curve."
