Smart grids + people + energy?

Can smart meters and smart grids help make energy systems more sustainable?

46 households in Bergen tracked how much energy each device in their household used during 2017-2018. Along with real-time data, they got information on how to save energy and be more eco-friendly. They also saw how they perform compared to similar households. As participants in the PARENT pilot project, they talked with a team of researchers in Bergen about their thoughts on these experiences. What can we learn from such a ‘living laboratory’ experiment? Will smart meters and smart grids change our lives? In what way? Do we own our own data? How can we use it well?
