Disaggregation, or the separation of whole-home into
appliance-specific energy data. Time is on the horizontal
axis, and X on the vertical axis.
Most agree that better data into home energy usage is an imperative to tame growing demand. Disaggregation potentially offers a low-cost, scalable solution. However, research, technology, and policy barriers may prohibit, or at best delay, the most promising solution(s). This workshop focused on identifying and addressing needs in order to bring the technology to fruition as quickly as possible. This was a "working" meeting so that each session began with a short presentation followed by facilitated discussion to collaboratively develop answers.
