Scheduling home applications to reduce energy consumption

Ana Rossello-Busquet & Villy Bæk Iversen
In order to optimize the energy production, users should avoid consuming energy at the same time to avoid energy demand peaks. This can be achieved by setting a maximum energy consumption per user’s house. In other words, the overall consumption of the user’s appliances cannot exceed the maximum kwh. This project will study how home appliances tasks can be scheduled to not exceed this maximum consumption by using priorities.
