Energy poverty at the household level is a serious hindrance to economic and social development, especially in off-grid, remote villages in the developing world. Some initiatives have sought to provide these households with resources such as renewable generation units and electric batteries to enable access to electricity. At present, these resources are(More)
We present a system and study of personalized energy-related recommendation. AgentSwitch utilizes electricity usage data collected from users' households over a period of time to realize a range of smart energy-related recommendations on energy tariffs, load detection and usage shifting. The web service is driven by a third party real-time energy tariff API(More)
In this paper, we present AgentSwitch, a prototype agent-based platform to solve the electricity tariff selection problem. Agent-Switch incorporates novel algorithms to make predictions of hourly energy usage as well as detect (and suggest to the user) deferrable loads that could be shifted to off-peak times to maximise savings. To take advantage of group(More)
A key challenge for intelligent domestic heating systems is to obtain sufficient knowledge of the thermal dynamics of the home to build an adaptive thermal model. We present a study where stochastic grey-box modelling is used to develop thermal models and an extended Kalman filter is used for parameter estimation for a room in a family home.
Improving the energy efficiency of domestic heating systems can lead to a major reduction in energy consumption and the corresponding CO2 emissions. To this end, intelligent domestic heating agents (IDHAs) aim to operate domestic heating systems more efficiently with minimum user input. In this work, we propose a new general IDHA that balances heating cost(More)
We present a novel negotiation protocol to facilitate energy exchange between off-grid homes that are equipped with renewable energy generation and electricity storage. Our protocol imposes restrictions over negotiation such that it reduces the complex interdependent multi-issue negotiation to one where agents have a strategy profile in subgame perfect Nash(More)

We present our Smart Home Framework (SHF) which simplifies the modelling, prototyping and simulation of smart infrastructure (i.e., smart home and smart communities). It provides the buildings blocks (e.g., home appliances) that can be extended and assembled together to build a smart infrastructure model to which appropriate AI techniques can be applied.(More)
