  • Smart Grid Lessons from Boulder? | OASIS Staff Blogs
    a huge problem The Smart Grid cannot get smarter without smart meters To be fair Smart Grid is much much more than AMI It is a national and eventually planetary power optimization scheme but it needs the electronic brains and data to achieve its predicted efficiency The key as always is the market itself and its main driver the consumer One analyst I spoke with told me that in his firm s findings no more than 10 of consumers have any interest whatsoever in managing their power consumption a la Hohm or GooglePower Of course Microsoft and Google are gambling otherwise My own sense is that even such low numbers would grow dramatically if consumers could visualize their savings Energy Star ratings are a good example of this they are now ubiquitous even though disclosure is not mandatory Consumers love them for two reasons the Energy Star logo tells them they can expect power savings and therefore smaller power bills and they can feel good about the greenness of their purchase The two have to go hand in hand just doing the right thing is not enough of an incentive for widespread market adoption not because consumers are not ethical but because their priority is to make ends meet especially in recession times Today consumers have only indirect control over the energy market they can vote with their wallets at the pump manage their consumption in the dark no pun intended by turning off appliances they can also vote for energy policy changes which is how Gray Davis lost his job as Governor of California As of yet there is no real time mechanism for consumers to make informed energy decisions or plan their consumption Do they know that their flat panel TV is one of the biggest energy hogs
