As the problem of energy generation and use becomes apparent, technologies for optimal energy management and rational use gain importance. The present work illustrates an architecture that focuses on energy saving at households, a sector accounting for the 42% of global energy consumption in the European Union. The main part of the architecture is provided by an optimized residential gateway, which bears appropriate home network interfaces and service logic to allow users perform personalized, pervasive programming of the energy consumption of home devices, such as white goods, home communication equipment and audiovisual equipment by enabling real time monitoring of energy consumption in both active and stand-by modes.
