Smart Energy Technologies for Higher Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is high on the agenda of policy makers because it contributes to the achievements of the three main objectives of energy policy: security, affordability and sustainability. In this paper the focus is placed on efficiency gains arising from the adoption of smart energy technologies by domestic and small corporate users, including smart metering and "beyond the meter" management systems, home area networks and devices. Though the expected benefits are important a lot remains to be done. Condition for smart energy systems to be adopted and barriers to their adoption are discussed. Considering the dominant suspicious attitude toward utilities it appears that a trustworthy independent business entity, building a proper relation between users and technology providers, is needed to assure the deployment of smart energy technologies across the population concerned.
