Intelligent plugs will tackle the energy-guzzlers

Intelligent plugs will tackle the energy-guzzlers inside your home – Times Online: “Devices designed to provide accurate information on consumption, while appealing to everyone who likes to have the latest in gadgetry, are expected to proliferate this year.”

My car gives me feedback on petrol consumption. It’s a bit tricky to read and drive at the same time, but if it’s quiet I put it on and I have learned a lot about how to drive my car more efficiently. That kind of feedback really does have an impact and if we have appliances which tell us how much energy we are using, it’s be great for the planet and a new obsession for us all!
