ACEEE study finds feedback on usage cuts it by just 3.8% <-- You have to automate home energy management to get 20%+

Real-time feedback provides more control over energy use for many customers Washington, D.C. —Recent smart grid policy initiatives in the United States and the E.U. have led to large-scale research projects investigating the use of real-time feedback technologies that leverage data provided by smart meters. Today the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) released Results from Recent Real-Time Feedback Studies , a new review that found residential electricity savings ranging from 0 to 19.5%, with average savings of 3.8%. “This level of savings is modest but encouraging, given the number of factors that appear to influence the use of feedback devices,” says Ben Foster, Senior Analyst at ACEEE and lead author of the report. “While by no means an exhaustive list, these factors include the design of the devices and the types of content they provide, the degre...
