Energy Channel 2.0
Most consumers know little about their home energy consumption. Providing detailed, personalized actions for saving energy is a key feature of in-home energy displays, encouraging consumers to reduce consumption. However, studies have shown inconclusive results regarding the effectiveness of commercially-available in-home energy displays, possibly due to providing delayed feedback without an effective consumption breakdown. Research shows that real-time residential energy displays lead to better identification of actions that affect energy consumption, compared to delayed feedback after one hour or longer.
