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.
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.
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 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.
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…
