Conscientious Showerers Take Shorter Showers

People who track the amount of water and energy consumed during showers, thanks to a ‘live’ display on the shower head, shower sparingly. This is the main thrust of an empirical study by Dr. Verena Tiefenbeck at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich. The study has implications beyond the actual subject matter: it supports the assumption that real-time feedback can make a significant contribution to more economical energy use.

ETH Zurich’s Shower Feedback Pilot Receives International Distinction

ETH Zurich’s Shower Feedback Pilot has just received an international distinction – designation as a “Landmark” (best practice) case study through Tools of Change’s peer review process. The peer review panel found that the approach used in the pilot was a highly replicable and innovative one that yields impressive results (a 22% savings in water and energy use compared to a control group).

This year’s panelists included a member from an on-the-ground program as well as from some of North America’s most proactive consulting, NGO, and government organizations supporting energy conservation professionals. They include Arien Korteland from BC Hydro, Doug McKenzie-Mohr of McKenzie-Mohr Associates, Brian Smith from the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Marsha Walton from the New York State Energy, Research and Development Authority and Dan York of ACEEE.

Article on energy consulting using smart algorithms published in “success stories” of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (Sep. 2016)

November 09th, 2016

Electricity consumers receiving personalized consulting services can significantly reduce their consumption. However, the identification of consumers with high demand and potentially large reduction potential is a challenging task.

Our team at ETH Zurich and the University of Bamberg designed an algorithm, which allows to identify consumers with high demand by processing their smart meter data. The algorithm provides consumers with personalized energy-saving tips and helps them to reduce their consumption.

More details of this research project can be found in the publication of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE).
