Technology developed by STOK and partner companies are being tested in LivingLabs in the Porvoo area.
What is a LivingLab?
Currently we are developing an energy monitoring system which visualizes in real time the actual energy consumption of a house or a flat. In practice this means that a resident living in a LivingLab may instantly "see" his or her energy consumption on a constantly updating graph on a web page. The graph makes it easy to understand the effect of various energy savings measures. The user instantly gets feedback on how energy consumption is affected by switching on an off electrical devices, for instance a television set.
By LivingLabs we mean houses or flats where this system is set up for testing. The residences are inhabited by real families, so that we can get user-centered experiences on the usability of the system we are developing.
Links to LivingLabs
The residence's energy consumption graph is displayed to the user via a Web page. The links below point to web pages which display consumption from monitoring systems installed in real houses.
The users share their experiences in blogs. Look for the "blog" link next to the LivingLab link.
Later the visualization and graphing functions will merge to form the WEB-KERUU service, which is a solution for user-centered energy-awareness.

About the technology tested at the LivingLabs
The system known as Mini-Skaftkärr (or "Minsk" among close friends).
The oSSG Integration Platform and the WEB-KERUU system has been developed by STOK in the AsEMo project , funded by the European Union's ERDF programme.
