Virtual agent organizations to optimize energy consumption in households

Emilio J. SÁNCHEZ, Francisco JARAMAGO, Manuel LÓPEZ

Abstract


Global warming affects us all, that is why we must all act to stop it. It has been shown that this undoubted problem can be solved to a large extend if we make small individual efforts. How can we do this? Making prudent use of electricity. If we manage to make more efficient use of the energy we consume in our homes, we will contribute enormously in this common cause. With the help of virtual agents, we will get a better management of the energy we consume.


Keywords
