Conference: Metering, Billing, CRM/CIS America 2005
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Presenter: Herbert E. Hirschfield and Joseph S. Lopes
Abstract: This presentation looks at how new technology for metering and thermostats, when combined with programs that utilities and state agencies promote, can provide valuable benefits to residential and commercial electric customers and their sponsors. Case studies presented illustrate actual programs that demonstrate various automation technologies for monitoring and control that address the critical needs of the energy industry for reducing peak demand and also provide end user customers with benefits beyond the traditional monetary incentives.
