By making consumers more aware of their energy usage patterns in real time, the Pecan Street project in Austin, Texas hopes ultimately to achieve a two-thirds reduction in the average homeowner's energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Pecan Street's research focuses on distributed generation, storage, demand response, energy efficiency, new pricing models and other technical and economic innovations in and around the home.
