Dear All,
My name is Sangogboye Fisayo Caleb, I am an Erasmus Masters Student of Prof. Dr. Olaf Drögehorn. I am currently working on my Masters Thesis titled Analyzing and Computing the gain of (level of sustainability) for building Automation.

For this research I will need  to analyze various log files and energy consumption data to calculate the gain of investing in Automation. These data will be used solely for this research purpose.

I will really appreciate your willingness to give these data inorder to carryout my Master's Research.

My email address is

Thank you.

I have my doubts about this approach.

Valid results would be seen only after a year. Energy consumption in an average household varies dramatically over the year - you should only compare logs of Feb 2014 with those of Feb 2013.

In this time a lot of other measures could influence the results. Example: The owner replaces ordinary light bulbs by LED. Therefore, analyzing the logs is far from sufficient, this would have to be accompanied by questionnaires and a careful screening.
