Innovatec is making a step forward towards the now-called IoT reality, that is to say Internet of Things reality:

a new perspective aiming at connecting companies, houses, local and regional institutions, and extending the advantages currently offered to the single entities to the whole community, now and even more in future.

The Smart project is the concretization of Innovatec vision: an innovative network capable of integrating web and domotics and interconnecting hundreds of renewable energy producers-consumers.

Innovation is granted by a complex hardware-software infrastructure, which brings renewable energy production plants and consumption devices online, both the domestic and industrial ones.

kWhs are exchanged within the info-energetic community, according to profit logics convenient to all its members: through the web, all the devices linked to the interconnection system (the so-called smart grid, or intelligent network) are self-managed, following efficiency principles.

The data available on the web – such as weather forecasts and quotations of the electric stock exchange – can influence the dynamics for energy production, stock and cession. Everything is governed by a centralized management system, that guarantees the best of performance.

Smart Home

Thanks to the interconnection between the remote control system and the domotics of the load management system, home appliances can be monitored at all time.

The Smart Home is equipped with different energy production and storage devices (solar panelling, water heating system, heat pump, battery).

As information is always available on the web, the user can take action whenever s/he needs and wherever s/he is: it is possible to either program or inhibit the functioning of the consumption devices, like aligning their activity with the curves of photovoltaic energy production, just to give an example.

Smart Community

Many Smart Homes, all together, represent a domestic producer-consumer network linked to an intelligent technological system, which assimilates and manages energy production and consumption at a higher level: the level of the Smart Community.

As innate in the digital universe, physical proximity is not necessary among the members of the community to join this ‘energetic democratization’.

Smart Grid

Houses, companies and renewable energies are all part of the same network in order to share energy and information: an intelligent technological system, managing energetic exchanges, both within the network and outside of it. Resorting to traditional energy suppliers is highly limited and this bypasses the problem of the reduced continuity of renewable energy.

A strong decrease in the price of energy can be achieved also reducing the infrastructure management costs: as a matter of fact, reducing the loss for energy transit helps the consumption of local production.
