22 June 2010: Conference on Energy Conservation Practices and Awareness at UNESCO Headquarters

Do you know the effects of switching on your heating system in winter? Can you imagine receiving information concerning your energy consumption on your mobile phone when you switch on an electrical appliance in your home?

Under the framework of the European Commission sponsored project ‘BeAware’, the Italian company Engineering Ingegneria Informatica, which is also one of UNESCO’s space partners, developed an extremely interesting solution called Energy Life. It includes a mobile phone application and an ambient interface that makes use of the home lighting and lamps as a means to communicate with the user. Energy Life will motivate and empower citizens to become active energy consumers, by offering them the opportunity to raise awareness of their own power consumption in real time.

UNESCO and Engineering Ingegneria Informatica jointly organize a conference about this project on 22 June 2010 at UNESCO headquarters, Room VII from 11:30 to 13:00.
