  9. 9. A greener society with ZigBee ZigBee helps better manage energy and supports the Smart Grid through the Smart Energy profile ZigBee is used in over 40 million smart meters currently in deployment around the planet Large scale deployment of ZigBee sensors will help achieve the Sustainable Homes and Buildings objective However, most wireless sensors are still faced with a critical issue: batteries Enabling the use of energy harvesting technologies, ZigBee Green Power is a key contribution to a world with less batteries ©2009 ZigBee Alliance.

  11. 11. The rationale for demand response Some facts – Local use of electricity is rising between 1 and 11% per year – Producing electricity creates 37% of all greenhouse gases – Coal is still the fastest growing fuel for making electricity – There is no effective large scale storage technology In many situations demand management is the only remaining choice to ensure energy sustainability ©2009 ZigBee Alliance. All rights reserved.
  12. 12. What is ZigBee Smart Energy? Smart Energy is ZigBee’s open standard way of achieving – Demand response and load control – Energy management and metering services – Presentation of grid status and energy costs – Utility customer communication – Many more features enabling the Smart Grid ZigBee Smart Energy is achieving worldwide presence – Proposed to IEC as basis for a smart metering standard – Endorsed as key standard by US DoE and NIST – Endorsed by ESMIG for smart metering across Europe ©2009 ZigBee Alliance.

  15. 15. A world with less batteries Energy consumption and battery operation are two of the most critical challenges for wireless sensor networking Combining energy harvesting and wireless communications allows for maintenance free control and monitoring There are huge market opportunities for batteryless, wireless solutions, in particular in the building/office/hotel segments ©2009 ZigBee Alliance. All rights reserved.
  16. 16. What is ZigBee Green Power? Green Power is ZigBee’s open standard way of enabling batteryless or ultra low power applications – Light and shade switches, remote controls – Measurement sensors, thermostats, closure detectors – Panic and emergency buttons – Gas and water meters – Industrial switches ZigBee Green Power delivers end to end compatibility with existing (battery or mains powered) devices ©2009 ZigBee Alliance. All rights reserved.
  17. 17. What ZigBee Green Power delivers No maintenance No battery waste Increasing pressures and incentives for energy savings, wherever they come from Can lead to easier, faster installation Can allow for different form factors, more compact devices Reduced fire risk in some industrial environments ©2009 ZigBee Alliance.

  19. 19. Conclusions In a world where energy is becoming a scarce resource, all means to optimize its usage must be deployed ZigBee is today the key wireless sensing and control technology to drive energy efficiency in homes, buildings and power hungry environments ZigBee Smart Energy and Green Power will help achieve the Smart Grid and Sustainable Homes and Buildings visions ©2009 ZigBee Alliance.
