The City of Melbourne and Untapped Energy are working together to run an energy usage pilot project within households in the municipality.
Untapped Energy is a business formed and run by university students. This pilot program provides Untapped Energy staff with the opportunity to use their technical skills while providing City of Melbourne residents with a valuable service.
The pilot program involves arranging for In-Home Display (IHD) devices to be placed inside residential households. The devices display real-time electricity consumption data for the household. This pilot program seeks to understand what impact access to real-time data has on household electricity consumption and behaviours.
Participation is free and the program runs for 3 months. See the attachments for more information and the application forms if you wish to participate.
