Existing advanced and sophisticated building systems combined with emerging IT technologies facilitate the
development of a range of new Internet based energy and environmental services. Driven mostly by the deregulation of
energy market, energy utilities as well as telecommunication companies build up and test exemplars of new energy services,
provided to building occupants.
This paper discusses the general context of the development of e-based energy services and presents a set of such services,
developed and tested in Greece. The provided energy services were the remote monitoring of environmental parameters,
the remote control and actuation of cooling equipment and the on line prediction of energy consumption and environmental
conditions. The services focus mainly on the cooling season, where peak power demand is rising due to the operation
of air-conditioning systems. In Southern European countries, the economic and energy efficient operation of cooling
appliances as well as energy management and load shedding are very important.
