Ef­fi­ciency pro­grams save enough en­ergy to power house­holds for a decade

Utilities Middle East - - PRODUCTTS & TECHNOLOGY -

Con­sumer house­holds sup­ported by Or­a­cle Util­i­ties Opower En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency pro­grams have reached more than 20-ter­awatt hours (TWh) in cu­mu­la­tive en­ergy sav­ings. This equates to enough en­ergy to power San Fran­cisco homes for 10 years, Spain for a month or three mil­lion Tesla Model 3s travers­ing the length of the equa­tor.

The dig­i­tal revo­lu­tion has en­abled con­sumers to bet­ter con­trol ev­ery­thing from how they shop to how they ride to work. Un­til rel­a­tively re­cently, how­ever, they lacked the abil­ity to ef­fec­tively man­age their en­ergy us­age to lessen both their en­vi­ron­men­tal foot­print and monthly costs.

Opower first in­tro­duced its con­sumer En­ergy Ef- fi­ciency pro­grams to the mar­ket in 2008. Just ten years later, the 20TWh mile­stone is a tes­ta­ment to how util­i­ties and their cus­tomers have em­braced th­ese pro­grams and trans­formed their be­hav­iors to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce en­ergy emis­sions.

“Opower rev­o­lu­tionised res­i­den­tial en­ergy ef­fi­ciency by em­pow­er­ing con­sumers at ev­ery eco­nomic level to man­age their en­ergy us­age with no ad­di­tional cost,” said Rodger Smith, se­nior vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager for Or­a­cle Util­i­ties. “We have given 15 mil­lion con­sumers ac­cess to ac­tion­able data that is en­abling them to take charge of their en­ergy con­sump­tion.”
