Abstract

The technology of Home Energy Management System (HEMS) has been developing for the purpose of increasing energy efficiency, reducing energy cost and reducing gas emissions. HEMS can allow consumers to provide load shifting using smart plugs and to provide energy efficiency using smart thermostats. Smart plugs and smart thermostats will enable the consumer to turn off devices that are large loads or let the Demand Side Management (DSM) system known as load management do its job such to reduce energy consumption in a given period with the premise of no consumers' comfort losses. This paper investigates the energy demand profiles for the residential sector. Investigations were out on residential energy consumption, energy conservation and the impacts of energy management systems on the residential load profile. This paper also aims to present an overview of the smart plugs and smart thermostats on the market and how consumers/users use them effectively. Finally, how people are going to save energy using smart plugs and smart thermostats was shown by experimental measurements in this study.
