Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS): Demonstrations in New York City and Westchester Residences

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This report describes the findings of a recent home energy management systems (HEMS) demonstration project conducted by NREL, in collaboration with Con Edison, from 2017 to 2018. Funded by NYSERDA, the demonstration project aimed to conduct an end-to-end demonstration of practical HEMS packages that can be deployed at scale, using commercially available technologies. The main objectives of this effort were to implement simple HEMS solutions for lighting, space conditioning, and plug loads in single-family homes (SFHs) and multifamily units (MFUs) in Con Edison’s service territory—and to develop technology transfer strategies based on the insights gained during the implementation process. A particular focus was placed on stakeholder education to help promote the benefits, including the energy savings potential, of HEMS technologies across New York State and to achieve wide-scale adoption of proven products and strategies.
