What is Smartable Energy Demand?
We've had lots of feedback and questions on our concept of SMARTABLE energy demand.
So we decided to give you some examples of what we think will comprise of smartable demand.
Examples of non-smartable demand are those that we want to use
immediately and are not easily stored. These would include
watching TV (you won't wait until the electricity is cheap/clean before
watching your favourite show), coffee machines, vacuum cleaners,
lighting, PCs, fans, printers...
And here is why it matters! Energy demand globally is expected to double
between 2003 and 2030. So we will have to learn to do more with
less and balance the demand spikes using "smartable" technology.
