Taipei's Education Department has adopted a cloud computing-based smart platform to manage power use at 299 city-run schools.
The platform is supplied by smart factory solution developer InSynerger Technology, with Far EasTone Telecommunications responsible for data communication.
The platform monitors and analyzes power use at each school to find room for saving energy and hiking efficiency.
Each school's power cost is based on a contract that stipulates higher prices for use exceeding the limits specified in the contract. The management platform monitors the power use and will send warning if th evolume comes close to the limits.
The platform also detects PM2.5 density in the air and indoor density of carbon dioxide.
So far 50 of the schools have been covered by the platform, and the rest will be so by year-end 2020, the department said.
