Residential Feedback Devices and Programs: Opportunities for Natural Gas

Stacey Rothgeb, Stacey Rothgeb (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


Behavior-based approaches have been a growing interest in the energy efficiency field over recent years and the use of residential energy feedback has garnered particular interest. By providing an increased level of detail, feedback can greatly increase a consumer's understanding of how energy is used in their home. This project reviewed the existing body of research on electricity feedback toidentify parallel lessons for gas, discussed the benefits and challenges of different types of feedback, and identifying three feedback options that show strong potential for natural gas savings.
