The Dashboard shows when GREEN ENERGY is available in surplus. There is a live weather report and also data of yesterday’s generation and usage ( or this past month’s generation and local usage ). Everyone can access this information for the whole Park settlement. There are a few additional ‘gadgets’ you can view if remove one that is on the screen with a click on the x in upper Right hand corner.
By the end of the month the homes and the buildings that are being monitored by the ORIGIN project will have access to their individual profiles. A TV Screen with the Dashboard display will be mounted in the CC for everyone to notice and track our generation and — our on site usage — of renewable Wind Energy.
One of the research questions is : Will the information and feedback on our usage, change our energy usage patterns ? Time will tell.
Next week I will write about the tariff reduction game ORIGIN will introduce on 1 March 2015. Watch this space ! with warm and renewable regards, Mari
on behalf of local ORIGIN core team Paddy Adkinson and Michael Shaw
