GEN6
– The EU-sponsored project GEN6 (Governments ENabled
with IPv6) aims at enabling existing eGovernment
infrastructure for IPv6:
• www.gen6-project.eu
– The GEN6 project sets up complementary and
interoperable national and cross-border pilots across
different EU States:
• IPv6 upgrade of eGoverment Network Infrastructures, e-Identification,
Services and Applications (Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Czech Republic and
Turkey).
• IPv6 upgrade of Secure Cloud Services (Luxembourg).
• IPv6 upgrade of Energy Efficiency in School Networks (Greece).
• IPv6 upgrade of Emergency Response Environments (Slovenia).
• and more

Pilot
The pilot provides real-time energy efficiency services over IPv6-enabled
networks to the local educational community
Energy data are recorded using
IPv6 enabled smart meters
Data are transferred
over dual stack (IPv4
and IPv6) networks
Energy data are being aggregated, processed
structured and transformed.

Energy Metering
• The smart metering infrastructure consists of a
consumption metering device and the i-box
• The i-box is a network device that acts as a data bridge
between the power meter and the school’s router
• Both i-box and school router have IPv6 global address

Energy Analytics
Energy Information System in the cloud
• Energy data are being
aggregated, structured
and transformed
• Energy data are also
correlated with other
data (school area,
student count, etc.)
• Calculations and data
mining algorithms are
performed

• Categorize schools based on their
energy efficiency using KPIs
– Energy consumption (KWh)
– Energy consumption comparison
to the previous day (%)
– Energy consumption / student /
square meters (Kwh/student/m2)
