As a solution to the emerging energy crisis and the environmental problems, renewable energy has to be utilised to the most. This paper deals with a residential building which is fully powered by renewable energy sources such as hydrogen fuel cell, IC engine and solar PV. Since the utility has no role in this scenario, the management of the system has to be done precisely, otherwise, it may lead to the entire system failure. The control and monitoring of the building's load, from a load point of view, by utilising weather data, load profile, source availability, etc. have been discussed in this paper. An automated building has been considered in this paper to ensure energy conservation and reliability. The proposed algorithm has been validated using MATLAB and C Programming.
