Energy control in buildings can only become reality if electrical devices can communicate and be controlled (from a distance) to optimise their energy requirements.
The efficiency of such a system will depend upon the performance and reliability of the network.
The alliance HomePlug® can offer this new communication technology along electrical power lines called GreenPHY™ (HPGP) This technology allows all different types of equipment like electric meters, water heaters, convectors, and even electric car chargers to “talk” to each other and communicate.
Homeplug GreenPhy™ is completely interoperable with products that comply to HomePlug® AV and IEEE1901.
It is a technology with low power consumption and compatible with the wireless ZigBee technology.
The LAN is actively participating with the work-group and preparing suitable adapted test benches.
