English abstract:
Nowadays, the variety of home and building automation technologies has led to a landscape with heterogeneous interfaces, communication protocols and devices. By the future establishment of the Internet of Things (IoT) in this area with numerous IPv6-based end devices, the degree of automation and the resulting complexity will further raise. Besides highly efficient control and maintenance strategies, use case scenarios like demand side management, load shifting, and energy feedback are future goals of building management systems. To this aim, not only building-inherent information sources for energy demand predictions but also external information concerning forecasts for more wealthy conditions and the production of renewable energy sources (e.g., solar or wind) as well as current energy market prices need to be taken into account. For reaching the ambitious goals regarding energy savings and smart consumption of renewable energy within the context of smart grids, a further interoperability problem needs to be solved.
