News, events and press review about Tera.
The digital expert Marco Camisani Calzolari recommends the Beeta App in the 6 October episode on Striscia la Notizia. The Beeta Game App, developed by Tera srl, is useful for continuously monitoring the electricity consumption of household appliances and obtaining advice on their optimal use. Already available free of charge on all digital stores, the app makes it possible to turn energy saving into a sort of competition, where the winner is the user with the most virtuous behaviour.
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.
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.
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…
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.
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…
Is it possible to know in real time how much I’m consuming? Or how much is my photovoltaic system producing? Yes. The smart meter reader interacts with..
