In this #blog, written by ILLUME Senior Analyst, Tabitha Munson, you can read about research ILLUME conducted to determine if Home Energy Reports (HERs) are still a useful behavioral energy efficiency program. We calculated the average energy savings for HER programs across recent evaluations, and compared energy savings across different factors such as fuel type, HER vendor, and the mode of report distribution (printed, emailed, or both) to explore if #HERs may be more effective under different circumstances.
Are Home Energy Reports (HERs) still an effective source of energy savings for residential customers? Drawing on statistical methods from biomedical research, ILLUME applied meta-analysis techniques to measure savings from HER programs to answer this question. Read about our findings in this case study.
If you missed the ACEEE Summer Study Conference last month you missed some good stuff! We’re happy to share this white paper in which ILLUME Senior Analyst, Tabitha Munson and her co-authors explore behavioral programs coming of age.
