Students from AU Herning bring people's energy concumption in their homes into focus

As part of the EcoSense project a group of students from AU Herning are working on measuring the water consumption. Steffen Lauridsen and his two fellow-students, Kim Kristiansen and Martin Boel are working on a prototype of a water gauge that measures the water consumption in people’s homes. The water gauge must be able to collect data on a…
