Our network continues to grow and our understanding of customer use and preferences continues to expand. But our work also serves as a replicable model for other markets, communities and countries. We help cities and utilities set up their own smart community projects, and we provide analysis using our unique data resources to help communities and companies prepare for America’s changing energy profile.

Our energy research network includes:

  • Volunteers across the nation
  • Circuit-level (disaggregated) and whole-home electricity use data
  • Smart water meter data
  • Smart natural gas meter data
  • Deployment of near- and early-market technologies, for field-trial analysis
  • Integration of dense networks of roof-top solar generation and Level 2 electric vehicle charging
  • Deployment of participant mobile apps, which present energy-conserving and water-conserving recommendations, along with home diagnostic information
