The Smart Home Interface: A Tool for Comprehensive Residential Energy Efficiency


In this brief, NEEP outlines the potential combination of two currently independent trends in residential energy efficiency: (1) the rise of the smart energy home and (2) residential benchmarking and labeling efforts. Currently, states, efficiency programs, and other stakeholders are pursuing both strategies to reduce energy use in the residential sector, but these efforts are being managed separately. In this brief, we walk through several opportunities for smart home and home labeling efforts to leverage each other for additional savings impact.
