Smart Residential Thermostat FlashTAG
The E3T program convened a new type of E3T Technical Advisory Group focusing on a single technology, Smart Residential Thermostats, on December 20th, 2012. This fast select Technical Advisory Group (FlashTAG) culminated in a single two and a half hour webinar, following advance work by TAG members to prepare and provide input.
A single session TAG meeting on Smart Residential Thermostats
At this single meeting, we reviewed and discussed features of smart residential thermostats and TAG members' guidance on the feasibility of Smart Residential Thermostats as a technology suited to adoption in the region, implemented through BPA and utility conservation programs. With TAG members' help, draft research questions were prepared for BPA to consider for potential field demonstrations/assessments of SRTs.
Information on the E3TNW.org database about four representative SRT technologies:
· ET240 Smart Residential Thermostat
· ET360 Smart Thermostat with Built-In Thermal Optimization Capability
· ET460 Smart Thermostats with External Home Energy Reports
