Using Real-Time Feedback to Reduce Electricity Consumption - 3rd Edition
Research Reports International, August 2011, Pages: 35
The 3rd Edition of Using Real-Time Feedback to Reduce Electricity Consumption report is a 35-page overview of the impact that real-time feedback has on electricity usage and the technology currently available to implement it.
Most end-users are billed for their electricity usage once per month and that bill is the only insight they have into their consumption. While this billing structure has been used for decades, it does not allow end-users to understand when they are consuming the most electricity or the demand of appliances or equipment. In contrast, real-time feedback provides end-users with insight into when and how they use electricity, significantly improving their ability to control their consumption. When combined with price signals, real-time feedback can reduce peak demand and help utilities manage load.
Using Real-Time Feedback to Reduce Electricity Consumption provides industry participants with a thorough understanding of how to provide real-time feedback in order to change end-user behavior with regard to electricity usage. Additionally, it aims to provide knowledge of why real-time feedback is an important element in meeting the electric power needs of the 21st century.
Topics covered in the report include:
- Discussion of why reductions in electricity consumption are needed
- Explanation of what real-time feedback on electricity usage is
- Analysis of the technology available for providing real-time feedback
- Profiles of key real-time feedback devices
- Overview of how real-time feedback can lead to reduced energy consumption
- Evaluation of pilot projects to trial real-time feedback
