"There’s a new poll out from Harris Interactive gauging consumers’ perception of the smart grid and smart meters. Turns out they don’t have much of one. In fact, close to 70 percent of them have never heard of the smart grid and about 63 percent haven’t a clue about smart meters. Those who ARE aware of the smart grid are concerned about the security around it, which is another thing that technology players should be worrying about"

"he Wattcher is a design object that displays your home's total electricity consumption in a beautiful and meaningful way. When you switch on any electrical device, the Wattcher shows the extra power consumption. It gives you insight into your energy behavior and helps you save energy" By Marcel Wanders.

"Earlier this year I blogged about energy information and a tool our engineers developed called Google PowerMeter, a Google gadget that can show consumers their personal electricity consumption right on a home computer. Our software relies on "smart meters" (or other metering devices) as a data source. Over the past several months we've been looking to partner with utilities that are installing (or have already installed) this equipment in their customers' homes. We're energized by our very first Google PowerMeter partners"

"At Jokamajo we're currently alpha testing a social metering application called Flukso. Flukso lets you compare your total electricity consumption to that of other households. These can be family, friends, colleagues, you name it. With Flukso, we're trying to turn those abstract watts and kWh's into something more tangible. You can display time-series charts covering the most recent hour, day, month or year. You can also dynamically add or remove other Fluksonians' (yeah, by signing up to the trial you're also getting a new passport) data onto the chart. I"

"The successful reduction of carbon emissions in the built environment to meet the targets of 2050 is entirely dependent on an improvement in performance informed by regular post-occupancy monitoring. BIM can continue to play a vital role in this process beyond the completion of the construction and there are powerful social media tools available to help make it happen. A creative approach to the field and an open mind to the power of open data formats will help the profession to share knowledge and avoid the usual debates about interoperability. We need to improve the communication between the designers and users throughout the life of the building, not just as we hand over the keys." Fantastic work by Rob Annable and colleagues, taking forward lots of ideas and making it happen.

"Ms Bligh said the program, which is the only State Government run one of its kind in Australia, would go a long way towards reducing Queensland's carbon footprint by a third by 2020. Tony Belisle, whose family received a Climate Smart home service on Sunday, said he was looking forward to the cheaper bills and cleaner environment. "It's quite an eye opener to be able to look at the metre and see the usage you have and be able to minimise that to make a better future for our children," he said."

"Video demonstration of the EcoMap, in development with the City of San Francisco. The aim is to develop a geo-mapping based, collaboration, visualization and measurement tool for citizens, businesses and the city authorities to measure their carbon emissions and to see the collective results of their individual climate change behaviors." Joint project between Arup, Cisco, City of San Fran etc.

"But containers are not the only innovation of which Mr Manos is proud. Microsoft’s data centres in Chicago and across the world are equipped with software that tells him exactly how much power each application consumes and how much carbon it emits. “We’re building a global information utility,” he says."
