This is a proposal requesting for someone to speak on this topic. If you’d like to speak, leave a comment.
The proposed product falls under internet of things. Apart from providing power savings, the same product also features office space automation/scheduling
Saves atleast 10% (Average savings > 20%) of the energy consumed in office spaces. The product saves energy by controlling power consumed by lights, computers and Air Conditioners (HVAC systems).
Affordable at very less price (costs <Rs. 200/employee and lesser if mass produced for lighting & computer solution) in comparision to high cost (~USD 85) for a reliable occupancy sensor. (http://www.amazon.com/Leviton-OSC10-M0W-Ceiling-Occupancy-Sensor/dp/B001U3Z4AW). The proposed product cost breaks even within 1 year.
-Under similar circumstances, saves significantly more power than occupancy sensor or any other commercially available solution
-Invention protected by international patents: https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2015114500 https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2015087355
- Initial prototype ready for exhibition
