Studies prove that changing consumer behaviour regarding energy consumption is directly related to the awareness of the public via education, and by making energy data readily available. In order to reduce electricity consumption, accurate real time data must be available to homeowners and this has been studied extensively. This is the driving force behind Blue Line Innovations' philosophy and approach.
A compilation of more than 60 research studies highlighting effects of energy monitoring devices on energy usage.
Alberta Innovates Technology Futures study concludes homes using the PowerCost Monitor™ reduced electricity consumption by 9% overall and up to 16.7% for those with electric hot water heaters. The three year electricity consumption data for all participants was normalized based on the weather and survey data using a statistical algorithm.
The analysis of the data has provided the following major conclusions:
