Annual Meeting 2014

TEDDINET Annual Meeting 2014

London 25 March 2014

TEDDINET held its first Annual Meeting, hosted by the UK Energy Research Centre Meeting Place on Tuesday 25th March 2014. The one day workshop on Transforming Energy Demand through Digital Innovation took place at The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG. Attendance was by invitation.

Workshop aims and objectives:

This workshop aimed to showcase the latest research in digital technologies (Smart Meters, monitoring, automation and feedback) for enabling energy demand reduction and demand response, and to map out the research challenges for active consumer engagement, technology development and market deployment of these technologies. The outcomes are intended to help support policy development and decisions relating to digital innovation in homes and workplaces.

The workshop was structured around the following questions:

  • How can digital technologies help to provide better information on the nature of energy demand in homes and workplaces?
  • How will digital technologies impact on energy demand over the coming decades?
  • How will household and workplace dynamics shape digital technologies in use & how will those technologies change household and workplace uses of energy?
  • What do energy companies, SMEs and other market actors require to realise the benefits of digital innovation for consumers?

What happened on the day:

It was a great day, bringing together almost 100 people from universities, from the commercial sector, those representing consumers and those responsible for creating policy. The lively discussions on the day were ignited by our first speaker, Karen Ehrhardt-Martinez (Human Dimensions Research Associates), who demonstrated the diversity of public attitudes to and knowledge of domestic energy use, by a simple but effective request to ‘stand up if you know how much energy you use’. Interspersed between round table discussions were a number of other excellent talks. We learned how few of us actually take their energy expertise home with them and we were told that Dr Spock is rarer than Homer Simpson. We saw that a mountain of raw energy data is hard to interpret for the researcher, let alone for the consumer. We looked at pictures of smart homes that were entirely devoid of humans, their clutter and their behaviour, and we were introduced to a perfectly normal couple who have two washing machines – part of the double clutter that comes from moving in together. We heard about good examples and big challenges for business and academia to collaborate more effectively, and we were challenged to think more actively and more creatively how research can shape the roll-out of smart meters for the benefit of the citizen.
