EcoHome Lab: Monthly meetup and skill share

9th November, 6:00 pm7:30 pm

***

Now in our regular monthly slot – every second Thursday of the month. A hangout for people taking control of their home energy usage and generation. We use open-source hardware and software to gain a better understanding of energy in our homes, how to make the best use of the energy we generate and reduce energy wasted.

Catch up on [some of our previous sessions and presentations](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiz1gBPXWVAJ4hzg3zj72hVrXVJgWvzOG).

Unless there’s a specific title to the session, it means we have no scheduled speaker and it will be an open session. We welcome contributions.

This is a CarbonCo-op (http://carbon.coop/) initiative working close together with OpenEnergyMonitor (https://openenergymonitor.org).

• Sensors – electricity, gas, temperature, humidity, air quality…

• User interfaces, dashboards

• Aggregation of data sources

• Taking the power back! – Making better use of the surplus power we generate

Who is it for?

• Anyone with skills in physical electronics, web development or programming who wants to use that knowledge to reduce energy and carbon!

• There will be open space for small groups to focus on adding new sensors or hacking the user interface, there will always be a ‘newbies’ group for people interested in finding out more.
