GridSense is the smart technology of the future, controlling electrical equipment such as heat pumps, boilers, charging stations for electric vehicles and batteries autonomously and in a decentralised way. GridSense uses artificial intelligence to gauge, learn and anticipate user behaviour. It uses this information to ensure optimised, efficient energy consumption within a building. With this smart energy, a conventional house is transformed into an energy-efficient smart home. Thanks to the intelligent switching of loads, GridSense also contributes towards the development of a smart grid and helps level out the load in the distribution grids.
