RESIDE hosts round table on measuring residential energy use at Energise 2020 conference
14 February 2020
RESIDE project hosted a Round Table on measuring and monitoring residential energy use in India: challenges and opportunities on 13 February 2020 in Hyderabad. The Round Table was held as part of the plenary session of Energise 2020 conference that took place from 11-13 February 2020.
RESIDE Round Table shared the challenges and opportunities arising from the ongoing RESIDE field study, and sought inputs and experiences of other organisations who have undertaken such studies. The Round Table was attended by nearly 50 attendees from academia, Government, industry and civil society.
Prof Vishal Garg (IIITH) introduced the RESIDE study and the low-cost sensors that have been developed for monitoring indoor environment and electricity current. Prof Rajat Gupta (OBU) described the RESIDE approach for large-scale survey of residential energy use and thermal comfort across different cities in India. Prof Jyotirmay Mathur (MNIT) moderated the discussion.
It became evident that building a common understanding of issues and potential solutions to measuring residential energy use in India would help to advance solutions for reducing residential energy.
