About

Now in our regular monthly slot – every second Thursday of the month. A hangout for people taking control of their home energy usage and generation. We use open-source hardware and software to gain a better understanding of energy in our homes, how to make the best use of the energy we generate and reduce energy wasted.

This is a CarbonCo-op (http://carbon.coop/) initiative working close together with OpenEnergyMonitor (https://openenergymonitor.org).

Topics will include:

  • Home energy monitoring.
  • House energy performance assessment
  • Sensors – electricity, gas, temperature, humidity, air quality…
  • User interfaces, dashboards
  • Smart houses and automation
  • Aggregation of data sources
  • Taking the power back! – Making better use of the surplus power we generate
  • Who is it for?

  • Anyone with skills in physical electronics, web development or programming who wants to use that knowledge to reduce energy and carbon!
  • There will be open space for small groups to focus on adding new sensors or hacking the user interface, there will always be a ‘newbies’ group for people interested in finding out more.
  • Register your place via Meet Up.
