What is a HAN?
“
A Home Area Network (HAN) is a residential local
area network (LAN) for communication between
digital devices typically deployed in the home,
usually a small number of computers and printers
and mobile computing devices.
”
Source: Wikipedia
How does it work?
The HAN can use ZigBee Wireless Communication protocol with a central
controller that communicates with appliances.
The central controller collects appliance information wirelessly and
presents the state of the household on a dashboard.
Why implement a HAN?
Show consumers their wasteful habits…
…and empower them with real-time data to save energy
Previously
Currently
Consumer had to wait
one month for their
energy bill
With HAN Consumer can
get their energy usage
instantaneously and act
on their wasteful habits
Consumer serious
interest in energy
savings
HANs create an opportunity for customers to engage in
Utility’s Demand Response programs
Via the HAN, consumers are able to cycle back appliances during peak hours and
also turn off non-essential devices during peak hours. Consumers are now able to
shift appliance energy usage patterns over time.
Customers Can:
Establish a savings goal
and view progress towards
achieving that goal
“Set it and forget it”
Realize energy savings
and compare against
peers in their community
As a result, home energy consumption is monitored and adjusted
to achieve the desired level of energy and financial savings.
The benefits of HAN technology are expansive
Awareness
Real Time Info
HANs facilitate an
awareness of energy
cost and consumption
and make energy
conservation easy, fun,
and engaging
HANs provide realtime information on:
•
Detailed energy
usage information
by device
•
Energy savings
•
Temperature /
Weather
•
Curtailment
messages from
Utilities
•
Time of use
pricing
Analytics
Consumers are
provided data and
metrics on:
•
Hourly / weekly
usage
•
Peer to peer
comparison

Significant Energy Savings for
each Stakeholder
Significant savings for each stakeholder include:
Utility
•
•
•
•
•
•
Reduce peak demand
Improve customer service
by providing load control
Faster outage detection
Include residential and
commercial customers in
DR programs
Communicate with
customers instantaneously
Eliminate manual, on-site
meter readings
Consumer
•
•
•
•
•
Reduce annual energy
usage and cost by 10 -15 %
Remotely control
appliances / devices
View energy usage and
percentage of total
consumption for each
appliance / device
Automatically reduce
energy usage of appliances
during peak hours
Instantaneously view
energy usage instead of
waiting for next month’s bill
Government
•
•
•
•
•
Reduce the need to build
new power plants
Reduce carbon footprint
Reduce air pollution
Decreased dependence on
foreign energy
Preserve the environment
Implementation of HANs could result in some data-centered
challenges
Consumer Data
Privacy
•
•
Usage data
available to
public
Consumers can
operate in
standalone mode
or communicate
with utility
Consumer
Interest
Data Tsunami
•
•
Massive
amounts of
usage data
Opportunities for
software vendors
to provide
creative
programs to
customers
Challenges are an opportunity for companies
•
•
Savings main
driver
Green planet
Time-of-Use Pricing will influence consumer behavior
Utilities will communicate with
customers in real time
Customers will respond to utilities in
real-time
Dynamic Time-of-Use Pricing results in
adjusted consumer behavior
