Abstract: With the rapid process of urbanization, energy problem is becoming more and more prominent. Electricity is still mainly generated by burning fossil fuels, whose reserves are limited and will emit large amount of greenhouse gas. The concept of sustainable and intelligent buildings is emerging as an important application area for smart grid technologies, when the effective building energy management becomes feasible in a smart grid environment. As commercial building is an important member of energy consumers, an Energy Cloud System (ECS) can optimize of energy efficiency and reduce energy cost of a commercial building while provide comfortable indoor environment. The project is carried out through the design of Smart Gate together with ZigBee and WiFi wireless communication. Smart Socket could measure and transfer electrical data, micro-controllers, sensorsand many other electrical devices. The system can efficiently manage the energy usage of lighting, heating and cooling systems in buildings. In summary, the main contribution is building an energy database with encryption feature. The database with encryption feature is the main research direction of this dissertation project for Energy Cloud System. The developed system used Controller Area Network (CAN) Communication Protocol and EPPA scheme to design the database which offered a safer and effective information communication process. At the same time, in this project, a Smart Socket and an android GUI were also designed for Energy Cloud System
