KNX Smart Energy Summit

Smart energy management with KNX

Energy transition, climate protection, sector coupling - keywords that indicate the shift in the energy industry. In order to achieve meaningful climate protection goals, it is essential to take a more holistic view of sectors of energy consumption such as electricity use, heat generation and transport. The goal is to promote the use of green electricity by linking these sectors in an intelligent energy management system, to give preference to energy-efficient technologies and consequently to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Energy utilisation needs to be coordinated, managed and controlled. This is especially true for the individual energy consumers or generators, such as photovoltaic (PV) systems, energy storage system, heat pumps, charging stations, ...

KNX technology offers numerous solutions for this, which will be presented in a series of events at the "KNX Smart Energy Summit".

              The CONEXA 3.0 Performance Smart Meter Gateway (SMGW) has been developed from the very start with the aim of being able to cover ALL areas of the BMWi and BSI topic map. With the added value module, CONEXA only forms part of the smart technology platform from Theben. In combination with the CSX 324 control box and the LUXORliving Smart Home KNX system, applications can be designed in the areas of Smart Mobility, Smart Grid and KNX Smart Home/Smart Building, which allow the successful digitalisation of the energy transition to take major steps forward.

                The EisBär Home Energy Management System (HEMS) provides the KNX solution to generate, store and use energy efficiently. The HEMS controls the distribution of its self-produced electricity. All generators (e.g. the photovoltaic system) and consumers (heat pump, electric car, solar power storage, household appliances, etc.) are coordinated by the intelligent KNX technology in such a way that electricity costs are minimised and independence from the energy supplier is increased.
