29 Jun Variety of devices for flexible load management
ABB already offers a wide range of KNX-enabled devices. Marc Fleischer from ABB explains how they interact to perform load management.
It all starts with measuring. “Because if you can’t measure something, you can’t improve it”, Marc Fleischer quotes the physicist Lord Kelvin. According to Marc Fleischer, Product Marketing Specialist at ABB Stotz-Kontakt, when applied to today’s world, this means: “If you check consumer behaviour and make consumption transparent, then you can divide up the costs precisely, for example to create internal invoices.” This can achieve two things: Firstly, consumer behaviour can be changed, but secondly, it has also created an approach to automation: Load management can be set up, and installations can be monitored. In this way, “energy thieves” can be identified and incentives created to save energy.
