We study cost optimisation in multi-mode systems with discrete costs. We first solve the problem in one dimension and next we study it in multiple dimensions. As a motivating example, we study the temperature control in buildings using heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system HVAC while paying the minimal cost as possible. By optimising the behaviour of the HVAC systems, lots of energy could be saved. We are interested in finding optimal solutions as well as approximate solutions with guarantees.
