Any examples of real-time energy measurement in homes??? Hi :-) My professor told me that he thinks that if people are made more aware of the energy they consume in each action they perform (e.g the amt of electrical energy consumed by heating the stove for 15 mins..and such day to day actions) INSTANTANEOUSLY(as soon as the consumption is made) then they might be conscious about judicious use of energy. e.g he told me that there is a type of car called 'prius' which is a hybrid electro car and it gives the instantaneous miles /gallon of fuel consumption AS we hit or release the accelerator. He thinks if we install similar devices in home appliances, it might make people more conscious about their energy consumption real time . The question is that : is there any current technology that we can use to measure the energy consumption in homes (in individual appliances or in the home as a whole) in real time (i.e. as soon as the consumption is made) ? Please give suggestions...I want to give him some good feed back on this statement and give examples if this kind of thing is being practiced today. If you don't have examples of already existing devices, please suggest how we could implement this in future.
