One of the most complete smart city projects in Europe, the InovCity project, from the Portuguese utility EDP, includes the installation of 31.000 smart meters until June 2011, enabling real time communication and advanced energy services to EDP customers.

CSide SA provided EDP with its smart energy and automation solutions enabling homeowners to visualize in real time, monitor and interact with their energy consumption, while controlling multiple appliances in their homes.

CSide sustainable home solution was delivered via its unique web and android-based managed service platform which already provides utilities, telco's and service providers with a range of added value services.
