ETI commissions new partners to broaden its analysis of future energy needs in UK homes

Rebecca Sweeney, ETI Smart Systems and Heat programme manager said:
ETI’s research highlights that a Home Energy Management System should be a key component of a future smart energy system. However, we are aware that most consumers are not ready or willing to engage with their energy system, and so product solutions need to be consumer focused if they are to be effective.

HEMS is a key factor in our Smart Systems and Heat programme, ensuring that future attempts to change energy and heat consumption is more consumer focused. This analysis project, delivered by Bournemouth University and Baringa will provide industry with valuable insight into consumer energy use so that it can improve heating system performance built on a secure and flexible platform.

Spanning a six-month period of research during the winter and summer months, the two research parties will carry out further analysis and algorithm development using data from five homes. We anticipate that this analysis will provide a proof of concept for industry to develop the next generation of home energy management systems, for use in UK housing stock.
