This study investigates the ways in which feedback and advanced metering initiatives (AMI) can reduce energy consumption in the residential sector. The report describes the problem of energy resource invisibility, residential energy consumption, the advanced metering infrastructure, residential sector feedback technologies, and potential nationwide feedback-induced energy savings. The document includes a meta-review of 57 primary research studies.
