The increasing energy consumption in the residential sector and the growing penetration of renewable generation in build-ings have been leading to the need of smarter buildings. In or-der to reduce the energy consumption, optimize the consump-tion to achieve lower costs, and to ensure the local generation and consumption matching, in-house monitoring and control systems are needed. This paper presents a novel energy monitoring and control system developed under the European FP7 project ENERsip. Such a system is integrated at the edge of the service-oriented M2M-based platform for energy efficiency within energy-pos-itive neighbourhoods with the main goal of reducing electricity consumption by increasing the energy consumption awareness of the users, by acting automatically on the demand side, and by coordinating electricity consumption with the in-building and neighbourhood positive-energy generation facilities.
