Smart appliances and home energy management systems


As the climate crisis tightens its grip, the need to find solutions for the domestic setting that can be implemented at scale, to a common standard and with the minimum of delay, becomes ever more pressing.

We have already highlighted both the opportunity and challenge that heat pumps and other high-power devices such as EVs will have on the grid without effective controls in place.

In this 3rd white paper on DSR flexibility for domestic heat pumps, geo and Vaillant make the case for how to make Energy Smart appliances actually talk to Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS)

Whilst other architectures are possible, we propose a solution built around Matter centred in the home, offering the fastest way to get to consumers to adopt mass market simple, secure & interoperable DSR.
