Development of alternative energy sources must go hand in hand with demand management. This is of particular importance in developing countries where energy consumption will continue to increase as the economy becomes more developed and the people become more affluent. With the market penetration of mobile communications command and control of heating and cooling systems in commercial and domestic buildings is becoming a viable option. Such solutions are particularly applicable to the existing building stock. Tools are available to achieve this task in a cost effective manner. All that are needed are the systems and processes to link the mobile device to a smart command and control system which is then able to manage the appliance to achieve energy savings and at the same time show the consumer the savings that have been made. This paper explores some of the issues and possible solutions.
