  19. 19. Value in CBSM BCPs•  Actions can be directly linked to their consumption•  Flexibility in level of engagement•  Eco-coaching can be personalized and targeted•  In-house display provides real-time data WATER SAVINGS! 19
  20. 20. The H20me Smart Trial1. Test how real-time water use monitoring and online feedback could be integrated into the Perth BCP.2. Test the use of real-time comparative/ normative feedback.3. Greensense was the industry partner. 20
  21. 21. Implementation - TechnologyGreensense Platform is a ‘multi-utility’ service.Greensense Process three parts;1.  Collection of data2.  Processing in real time3.  Present data on GreensenseView dashboard 21
  22. 22. Implementation - Data Collection•  Pulse head & data logger installed onto water meter at house.•  Logger notes a pulse every 1L or 5L used.•  Sends data through mobile 3G network 22
  23. 23. Implementation - Greensense View•  Launch Smart Meter Challenge dashboard•  Extract water consumption & # occupants data in number of formats.•  Compare water consumption between weeks through a weekly profile•  5-minute interval profiles that showed specific end-uses to be identified (e.g. distinguishing toilet flush from shower from garden irrigation) 23
  24. 24. Implementation - Quintile module
  25. 25. Implementation - Heatmap Report
  26. 26. Implementation- Online Dashboard Water use in real time Daily weather/ Waterwise tips Competition between quintiles households 26
  27. 27. Participating Households•  Selection criteria,•  Selected participants offered meters.•  9 households accepted the offer•  Pulse head and data logger also installed at Josh Byrne family home, ABC TV’s Gardening Australia. 27
  28. 28. Results: EngagementEngagement with dashboard lower than expected;•  Letter & info packs sent as physical reminder of smart meter challenge (Round 4).•  Phone calls to prompt dashboard use (Rounds 4 and 5).•  Letter insert in response to participants forgetting log-in details/or not logged on to their dashboards (Round 5). 28
  29. 29. Results: Data Analysis•  Heat Maps - help identify anomalies & patterns of water use.•  Weekly Profile Comparison Reports - water use averages & maximums tabulated & graphed for 2 periods of time.•  Nature of this program means water reduction cannot be solely attributable to real-time data through online dashboard. 29
  30. 30. Results - Water SavingsMost households made a water savings!Note: Season effect on consumption - large decrease in consumptioncoincides with winter & not direct result of smart meter installation. 30
  31. 31. Participant FeedbackInitial feedback encouraging:“We have been using the dashboard for just over a week now andhave been checking the dashboard on a daily basis. Seeing howwe compare to other households is very motivating. When we firstlogged in we were above the average now we are below and tryingto get lower - I dont know how they can use so little water - if youhave some insights please pass it on!.My partner has become very competitive about what we are callingthe "Shower Peaks" on the graph; he is trying to use less waterthan me for each shower. When we first started I used considerablyless water than him for showers now we are about even. So I thinkthis Greensense meter has really helped him monitor his waterusage because where I always think about my water usage henever did so it really has improved his water usage.” 31
  32. 32. Lessons for the future•  Understanding meter limitations•  Visual display of real-time data & analysis for households must be used carefully.•  Effort required for successful engagement•  Carefully integrate the dashboard & data into eco- coaching•  Future programs can fully integrate smart metering with a CBSM BCP 32
