Project DEMAND is an initiative of DOST’s Industry Technology Development Institute (ITDI). It aims to showcase the advanced technologies developed in the Philippines designed to strengthen the government’s initiative to achieve energy efficiency and promote sound energy conservation practices.
The project will likewise showcase smart energy monitoring solutions to track energy usage patterns and performance. Its installation at CSU Carig campus is deemed complementary to the electromobility Research & Development Center (eMRDC) facility here.
Project DEMAND will be using Cloud-based Energy Monitors and eSensor devices to provide smart, comprehensive and easy-to-use energy monitoring and management solutions with Power Quality Data delivered in real-time to Smart Phones or Computers.
Present in the orientation forum was the DOST R02 OIC Regional Director Teresita Tabaog. She stressed in her message the critical importance of DOST-ITDI’s Smart Energy Monitoring System (EMS) which is expected to complement and further promote the development of the Electro Mobility Research and Development Center (eMRDC) at the CSU Carig Campus in this city.
