The document describes the work on the development of an online Energy Calculation System. The
system was developed from an idea from Bjarni P. Hjarðar and in cooperation with Orkusetur, the Energy
Agency in Iceland. The system is an interface to a database and a calculation engine. It provides means
for users to compare calculated energy usage of their house against their actual use of energy. This
energy is used to warm up houses that do not have access to geothermal energy. If users exceed the
calculated energy need they are advised on how to improve the energy usage.
Hopefully this project will be used by Orkusetur in the future to make people more conscious about their
use of energy.
