Consumption-based feedback has been demonstrated to encourage water conservation behaviors. Smart meters and digital solutions can support customized feedback and reinforce behavioral change. Yet, most of the studies documenting water conservation effects induced by feedback and smart meter data visualization evaluate them in short-term experimental trials only. Here we show that water conservation behaviors promoted by smart meter-based consumption feedback and digital user engagement… 
Guiding urban water management towards 1.5 °C
Reliable access to clean and affordable water is prerequisite for human well being, but its provision in cities generates environmental externalities including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As
Reliability Analysis of Intelligent Electric Energy Meter under Fusion Model Illness Analysis Algorithm
This work is aimed at solving the morbidity problem of the smart meter fusion model and improve the measurement accuracy and reliability of the smart meter. Starting with the topology of the smart
Regulation Effect of Smart Grid on Green Transformation of Electric Power Enterprises: Based on the Investigation of “Leader” Trap
The 2060 carbon neutral target reflects the long-term equilibrium and stability of production activities and the natural environment. As an important part of Chinese energy structure, the operation

Effectiveness of Smart Meter-Based Consumption Feedback in Curbing Household Water Use: Knowns and Unknowns
AbstractAdaptive approaches are required to counteract the mounting threats to water security. Demand management will feature centrally in such adaptations. The increase in the use of smart-meter
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. In
Mining the gap in long-term residential water and electricity conservation
Climate change and economic development provide a strong rationale for urban water and electricity conservation. Although behavioral and technological factors link short-term conservation of both
Data Mining to Uncover Heterogeneous Water Use Behaviors From Smart Meter Data
A data‐driven approach that extracts information on heterogeneous water end use routines, main end use components, and temporal characteristics, only via data mining existing smart meter readings at the scale of individual households is developed.
Consumption Change Detection for Urban Planning: Monitoring and Segmenting Water Customers During Drought
Demand management is a powerful way for water utilities to address the challenges of population growth and climate change. Although active conservation efforts have been studied extensively, recent
Large Landscape Urban Irrigation: A Data‐Driven Approach to Evaluate Conservation Behavior
Nonresidential irrigation is a unique and important yet understudied urban water sector. Knowing how urban irrigators use water is critical for projecting future demands, planning diverse supply
