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

Jack Kelly, William Knottenbelt
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Disaggregated electricity feedback may help a motivated sub-group of the population to save more energy but fine-grained disaggregation may not be necessary to achieve these energy savings.  ...  We examine 12 studies on the efficacy of disaggregated energy feedback. The average electricity reduction across these studies is 4.5%.  ...  An introduction to systematic reviews This paper is, to the best of our knowledge, the first systematic review on the effectiveness of domestic, disaggregated electricity feedback.  ...
