Understanding household electricity consumption using smart meters

18 Feb 2020   |   1030 –1600 hrs

Organised by CEEW, Prayas (Energy Group) and Clasp

Residential electricity consumption in India is changing due to rapid electrification, improved supply, increasing urbanisation and growing incomes. However, there is a lack of data and understanding of how people use electricity. As India embraces the smart meter technology, there is an opportunity to bridge the information gap and use this smart meter data to understand the nature of residential electricity demand.

The roundtable will bring together researchers and practitioners to deliberate on the opportunities that smart meters present for a better understanding of electricity demand and management strategies in the residential sector. CEEW, PEG, and CLASP have been collecting electricity consumption data, using smart meters, from a sample of households spread across different parts of India, under different initiatives. Insights from the data collected through these initiatives will add context to the deliberations.
