EcoHome Lab: Monthly meetup and skill share (online)

Now in our regular monthly slot – every second Thursday of the month. A hangout for people taking control of their home energy usage and generation. We use open-source hardware and software to gain a better understanding of energy in our homes, how to make the best use of the energy we generate and reduce energy wasted.

Catch up on some of our previous sessions and presentations.

Unless there’s a specific title to the session, it means we have no scheduled speaker and it will be an open session. We welcome contributions.

This is a CarbonCo-op ( initiative working close together with OpenEnergyMonitor (

Topics will include:

• Home energy monitoring.

• House energy performance assessment

• Sensors – electricity, gas, temperature, humidity, air quality…

• User interfaces, dashboards

• Smart houses and automation

• Aggregation of data sources

• Taking the power back! – Making better use of the surplus power we generate

Who is it for?

• Anyone with skills in physical electronics, web development or programming who wants to use that knowledge to reduce energy and carbon!

• There will be open space for small groups to focus on adding new sensors or hacking the user interface, there will always be a ‘newbies’ group for people interested in finding out more.
