This section Climate and Resource Protection for Economic Development project seeks to provide a smart energy efficiency and management solution for buildings. The system is designed to manage power supply from different sources (PV, Grid and bio-fuel generator) to meet the load requirements of the buildings (LT and Professorial blocks) to maximize reliability of supply.
The system consists of smart meters, sensors, relays and switches which are controlled by an intelligent algorithm which constantly optimizes the overall energy consumption within the buildings. It represents a model, which can be transferred to existing buildings in Ghana.
