Abstract

Smart meters are informative and educational tools that allow households to instantaneously view personal real-time water use feedback. A smart metering trial was incorporated into a residential water efficiency project in Perth, Western Australia. The H2ome Smart program by the Water Corporation and its contractor ENV Australia Pty Ltd engaged 12,000 households in selected suburbs of the Perth metropolitan area. After a selection process, nine households were accepted from the most active participants to participate in the Greensense smart metering trial, with the 10th participant being local television sustainable gardening celebrity Josh Byrne. A number of findings were made on how to derive benefits from smart meters in behavioural change programs.
