On November 26th 2013, the 2nd Energy@home workshop was organised in Milan. Energy@home is a no-profit association that, for the benefit of the environment, aims at developing & promoting technologies and services for energy efficiency in the home based upon device-to-device communication. Erik Laes and Simone Maggiore were both invited as speakers at the workshop, which was a good opportunity to share information about the actual and future status of the energy smart consumption inside customer home and to get acquainted with the development of in-home area network communication and in-home smart electric interoperable products.
