With enough insight, it’s possible to determine which electronics most of the energy in a home is feeding at a given hour. But current commercial devices that provide this insight leave much to be desired. That's where engineers at Duke University are entering the playing field.
The face of America’s energy grid is changing rapidly with the constant addition of small-scale solar panel installations. But there is little information about exactly where solar energy is being adopted on a county, city or neighborhood level. This is an oversight that the Department of Energy and other government agencies are turning to researchers to fix, including an interdisciplinary group at Duke University, led by Leslie Collins, professor of electrical and computer engineering and biomedical engineering at Duke.
