Smart Homes and Sustainability: Putting Data into Practice

Navigating the smart-home hype is a challenge, particularly when trying to decide what smart-home technologies can make meaningful contributions to sustainability. This session will help practitioners navigate the substance and pitfalls of this rapidly changing field. After discussing the current and projected future smart energy homes, we will present a vision for how smart-home technologies can contribute to low- (or no!) carbon energy homes. This includes a discussion of integrating smart-home technologies with solar PV, battery storage, and electric vehicles, and tangible steps practitioners can take to achieve this vision in their projects. Lastly, the session will explore emerging uses for smart-home data, including home energy performance assessment (EM&V 2.0).
