Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Metering Hardware and Embedded Real-Time Load Disaggregation

This morning I learnt that my full co-authored (with co-author William Sung, Ryan Dela Cruz, Brett Yarrow, Bob Gill, Fred Popowich,  and Ivan Bajic) paper "Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Metering Hardware and Embedded Real-Time Load Disaggregation" was accepted at IEEE's PES Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference (IEEE PES APPEEC 2013). So I am headed off to Hong Kong at the beginning of … Continue reading Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Metering Hardware and Embedded Real-Time Load Disaggregation

The Cognitive Power Meter: Looking Beyond the Smart Meter

Last week I learnt that that my full co-authored (with co-author Fred Popowich and Bob Gill) paper "The Cognitive Power Meter: Looking Beyond the Smart Meter" was accepted at IEEE's 2013 Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE'13).  So I will be travelling to Regina, Saskatchewan in the Canada. Here is the paper abstract: The smart meter is often heralded as the key … Continue reading The Cognitive Power Meter: Looking Beyond the Smart Meter

Are we just a bunch of ecopaths?

Last night I was privileged to be invited to a dialog sponsored by SFUs Burnaby Mountain College called Are We Just a Bunch of Ecopaths? A Dialogue on Our Environmental Paradox. William Deverell (famous author) and Buzz Holling (eco-complexity scientist) were the honourary guess. Elizabeth May (Green Party Leader) was also invited but could not … Continue reading Are we just a bunch of ecopaths?

A new day and a new website

Hi, I am a Computing Science PhD Student at Simon Fraser University. I plan to blog about my research into smart homes for energy conservation, and sustainability. I will be posting information on how I setup my home (and others) to achieve this. My main area of research in is intelligent systems. So we will … Continue reading A new day and a new website
