Analysis of energy consumption profiles in residential buildings and impact assessment of a serious game on occupants’ behavior
Highlights The paper has a focus on energy consumption habits and trends using statistical methods. Occupants’ behavior is monitored using smart metering system and awareness surveys. The impact of a serious game on occupant's behavior is evaluated. Abstract
This paper explores the data governance model designed for Ontario’s smart metering system for electricity consumption. Plans to introduce smart meters, designed to generate granular data about electrical consumption, led to concerns about how to balance the interests of public and private sector actors that...
Household electricity load forecasting using historical smart meter data with clustering and classification techniques
The uptake of smart grid technologies and increasing deployment of smart meters have brought greater attention on the analysis of individual household electricity consumption. Within the smart grid framework, home and battery energy management systems are becoming important demand side management tools with various benefits...
This paper reports on a review of international water conservation efforts, but with a particular focus on the Australian context. The aim is to take stock of the current understanding of water conservation, in particular: what influences people’s decision to conserve water, what influences whether...
The Modelling the Uptake of Water Conservation and Efficiency Measures in Sydney report team worked with Sydney Water’s WaterFix Program to validate their agent based, decision-making model aimed at encouraging consumers to participate in water saving programs.
The purpose of this report is to describe a mixed methods research project aimed at improving our understanding of the experience of energy vulnerable households under changes to electricity tariff structures.
Household solar, batteries and smart inverters can improve the stability and quality of power supplied by the electricity grid, early results from a pioneering trial in regional homes across NSW and Victoria suggest.
Electricity is an essential service, and policymakers need to ensure that the benefits of smart meters flow to everyone, not just the most switched-on customers.
