Birmingham gets an energy boost

03 September 2014

Birmingham will become the capital of energy efficiency in September when The Energy Event takes place at the NEC (16-17 September).

Members of the EnOcean Alliance will be demonstrating solutions for efficient energy management in buildings based on energy harvesting wireless automation systems. The three member companies - EnOcean, Pressac Communications and WAGO - will be showcasing a variety of wireless control devices that operate without cables and batteries. These include basic components for product developers, energy monitoring devices and integrated automation systems.
 
Using motion, light and temperature differences as energy sources, EnOcean energy harvesting wireless technology paves the way to highly flexible data collection from areas inside and outside a building using devices that require no maintenance and that offer robust performance at a range of 30m through walls and 300m in an open space. More than 1,200 products from over 350 members of the EnOcean Alliance are available on the market, controlling several hundred thousand buildings worldwide.

On the stand, EnOcean will present its low power radio, energy harvesting wireless modules, energy management and software enables engineers to create batteryless wireless devices for control, measurement and automation uses.  
 
Together with element14 and partners, the company is running the worldwide engineering "Forget Me Not" challenge to support creativity and the development of new applications based on EnOcean technology. 15 competitors will be developing pioneering applications in the field of home monitoring and automation. To help with this, they all received a development kit worth more than £1,000, comprising Raspberry Pi Modell B+, EnOcean Pi, EnOcean Sensor Kit, WiPi and a Tektronix oscilloscope. The competition will conclude in late October 2014, and the winner will receive a product bundle valued at more than £10,000.
 
Pressac Communications will be exhibiting a broad range of its new Pressac Sensing product portfolio to monitor and improve energy performance, and help facilitate reduced running costs for buildings.
 
WAGO will present highlights of its range of over 25,000 interconnection technology products, including rail mounted terminals and connectors, PCBs, interfaces, relays, electronic modules and advanced I/O systems.
