Does disaggregated electricity feedback reduce domestic electricity consumption? A systematic review of the literature

  title={Does disaggregated electricity feedback reduce domestic electricity consumption? A systematic review of the literature},
  author={Jack Kelly and William John Knottenbelt},
We examine 12 studies on the efficacy of disaggregated energy feedback. The average electricity reduction across these studies is 4.5%. However, 4.5% may be a positively-biased estimate of the savings achievable across the entire population because all 12 studies are likely to be prone to opt-in bias hence none test the effect of disaggregated feedback on the general population. Disaggregation may not be required to achieve these savings: Aggregate feedback alone drives 3% reductions; and the 4… Expand
Disaggregation of domestic smart meter energy data
No robust evidence is found to support the hypothesis that current forms of disaggregated energy feedback are more effective than aggregate energy feedback at reducing energy consumption in the general population, and it is concluded that more social science research into the effects of disaggregation energy feedback is required.

Real-time feedback promotes energy conservation in the absence of volunteer selection bias and monetary incentives
Feedback interventions have proved to be effective at promoting energy conservation behaviour, and digital technologies have the potential to make interventions more powerful and scalable. InExpand
Gemello: Creating a Detailed Energy Breakdown from Just the Monthly Electricity Bill
A more scalable solution called Gemello that estimates the energy breakdown for one home by matching it with similar homes for which the breakdown is already known, and results indicate that the accuracy of Gemello is comparable to or better than existing techniques that use sensing infrastructure in each home.
