Using Sensor Networks to Minimize Energy Consumption

Building energy consumption accounts for 30%–45% of the global energy demand. With an ever-increasing world population, it has now become essential to minimize the energy consumption for the future of the environment. One of the most crucial aspects in this regard is the utilization of sensing and environmental monitoring technologies in buildings as these technologies provide stakeholders, such a

Nature and Context

The demand for efficient energy sources and novel forms of energy has been a constant since ancient times and has become even more prominent now with the worldwide demand to reduce carbon emissions and fossil-fuel-based energy sources. Deployment of sensors and sensor networks is the most common approach adopted when seeking to better understand environmental processes. It is even more important in view of global phenomena such as climate change and large scale environmental degradation.
