News, events and press review about Tera.
Interoperability between platforms and devices is what will make the difference in a Smart Building and Smart Home Digital Energy system, and which could foster the growth of IoT. But what is meant by interoperability and what is the difference between open and closed communication protocols? For many years, ‘home automation’ systems have been characterised by closed technologies, linked to closed communication protocols (also referred to as ‘proprietary’ as they are developed by a particular manufacturer) characterised by a certain limitation of use. Open communication protocols are more versatile and represent a more ethical choice.
For those who were not able to follow the Smart Building Italia roadshow “The electrification of building systems: technical aspects and infrastructural issues” and, in particular, the speech of our CEO on “The scenarios of Digital Energy”, here is the link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-j9df43oTU&feature=youtu.be (in particular, at minute 1:11:50, Antonio Sacchetti speaks as a member of the Executive Committee of #SmartBuildingAllianceItalia).
To support the digital transformation that will involve the new electricity grids, Tera srl has developed Smart Devices that read the fiscal meter and monitor and manage the bidirectional flows of Electrical Energy, communicating both with battery (or other type of storage) and PV inverters, and with service delivery platforms (such as Energy Community or Virtual Power Plant services, Grid Services, and other dispatch services). In this article we try to describe how these technologies are useful for end-use applications, use cases that impact on users’ lives and habits, distinguishing between technologies already released in the last three years and those recently released.
Behind the concise statements made by our AU Antonio Sacchetti , reported in the article on l’Edicola del SUD , lie enormous implications. We have learned, from the lot of news about the PNRR (with the funds of the NGEU – Next Generation Europe), that the digital transition (alias digitization) is the first “mission”, the ecological transition (i.e. green revolution) is the second and, together, already absorb more than half of the funds allocated to Italy (thus over 100 billion euros, including loans and grants); moreover, part of the third mission (Sustainable Mobility) concerns however “energy” aspects (such as e-mobility, for example).
The “Water Pourer” has been conceived by Cleto Luca Chieco, 26 years old Industrial design student at Politecnico with the collaboration of Tera srl. The prototype will be exposed during the exhibition ‘Design in Puglia: nel blu dipinto di blu’, scheduled from 20th to 26th March.
At a time when energy resources are becoming increasingly precious, Valentina Iorio’s article, published on Corriere.it a few days ago, invites readers to make strategic use of apps dedicated to the theme of sustainability. To no longer risk forgetting the light on, or running water while brushing your teeth, continuously monitoring electricity consumption, and at the same time turn energy saving into a game, the App Beeta , available for both Android and iOS, is the winning solution!
The theme of smart building, has been evolving for decades: a long way from the now obsolete concept of “home automation”, which is marking time in favor of the term smart home, with elements of innovation often very relevant, as in the case of digital energy that enables to merge some of the features of the power grid …
The national PMI DAY of the Piccola Industria di Confindustria, which presents hundred of small and medium-sized companies in the country to thousands of high school students, was also held today in Bari.
Tera srl has been selected and chosen among the best EnergyEfficiency startups and companies in Italy, for the innovativeness, management, and social impact of its solutions.
Moving processing power to the edge of the network with edge computing is the new frontier of innovation. From the mainframe to the PC, from mixed client-server computing to the cloud and software-as-a-service, the technologies used for data processing, which has become increasingly complex, require even more high capacity and stable connections that minimize the latency time of information transmission, necessary for time-sensitive applications…
Our commitment and foresight to design and create IoT Edge Computer respecting the ecodesign principles for sustainability is guiding us on a long term path with our partners and customers, especially in the world of Digital Energy.
Thanks to BestStartup.eu for having identified the great innovative potential of an SME in the Apulia Region.
The European Parliament recent resolution on the New Circular Economy Action Plan sets out the path must be followed to promote the circular economy in Europe. In order to create sustainable and long-lasting products and enable citizens to fully engage in circular economy and benefit form resulting positive changes, the Plan includes a strategic framework…
Fog computing and edge computing are often confused, probably due to the similarity of the functionalities they offer in terms of data processing and data sending to analytical platforms located close to the data (ex. sensors on machinery, wearables, various types of devices on assets to be monitored and controlled).
Sodalitas Call for Future gathers 150 concrete business actions that respond to four major challenges: Call for Planet, Call for People, Call for Work and Call for Better.
Tera srl participates in Sodalitas Call for Future with the project “Beeta for School!” which aims to spread among students the culture of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability through a gaming app that stimulates them to live in a more conscious and balanced way, to reduce consumption and take care of the residential environment in which they live.
Tera Made in Italy solutions for Smart Building and Digital Energy are the result of decades of experience in research and development, design and implementation of systems for monitoring energy consumption, and are the result of ‘totally innovative and original approach with which IoT technologies are mastered. Tera’s products and services enable intelligent management of buildings and plants and contribute to the implementation of Energy Communities, Collective Self-consumption, VPP virtual production systems.
Although the pandemic triggered by Covid19 has undoubtedly led to socio-economic disruptions hard to forget, on the other hand it has been a trigger for innovation in many application areas, first of all in the Building, which over time will bring considerable benefits in our everyday lives. In the field of plant management and maintenance, the open approach of edge computers makes it possible to build infrastructures where systems and devices work collaboratively to offer and exploit new relationships in terms of building usage, service consumption (water, energy, etc.), environmental…
A great success for the Hackaton organized by the IoT Laboratory of the Polytechnic of Milan, which saw Tera and other internationally renowned partners among the protagonists. During the two-days challenge, many groups of young students and innovators met to create IoT ideas and projects, mainly based on wireless sensors, for the smart home and smart building…
In the national competition dedicated to ” open innovation agile tools for the digital transformation of processes and products in the health field “, the” Smart Health Platform “project presented by AReSS Puglia and a team of technological partners, that is Openwork, Sincon, Tera, I-Tel and the Foundation “Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza” IRCCS, ranked third, confirming…
