Auto Industry Addressing Vehicle Emissions… Who is Addressing Household Footprint?

Share Article

The residential sector accounts for 21-22% of both energy consumption and CO2 emissions yet, there are few, if any, tools for consumers to utilize to reduce consumption and improve efficiency and conservation; CFLs and Energy Star rated products are a good start. Widefield Technology, Inc. addresses the need for a solution that "greens" the entire home with the recent release of it's EOS Energy Optimization System

Widefield Technology, Inc. addresses the need for a solution that "greens" the entire home with the release of its EOS Energy Optimization System this month. It is common knowledge that vehicle emissions are a major contributor to greenhouse gases, in fact, "(i)n the US, about 20% of all greenhouse emissions come from cars..."1 In response, car manufacturers are producing and consumers are buying a wide range of alternative vehicles, including hybrids, to reduce the negative effects of traditional cars. These hybrids provide the driver with the information and tools to choose whether the car operates on fuel and/or electricity for maximum efficiency, convenience, and conservation...a revolutionary concept! But how are we responding to residential greenhouse emissions?

"...[T]he residential sector accounts for 21-22% of both energy consumption and CO2 emissions,"2 yet, there are few, if any, tools for consumers to utilize to reduce consumption and improve efficiency and conservation; CFLs and Energy Star rated products are a good start. Widefield Technology, Inc. is addressing this need with the release of its EOS Energy Optimization System at the recent Home Energy Display and Community Action Conference in Chicago, IL. This ground-breaking in-home energy conservation system sparked curiosity and excitement throughout the market; at the show in Chicago, Kyle MacLaury a Research Analyst for the Minnesota Center for Energy and Environment described the capability as, "...something out of the Jetsons."

EOS provides consumers with the necessary information data and tools, similar to a hybrid's dashboard, to make educated decisions regarding their energy consumption and efficiency. Traditional in-home displays have always provided basic energy consumption information, similar to your traditional vehicle's odometer, of how the home is operating as a whole. EOS is a "greening" system...comprised of the EOS Energy Assistant, a self-installed, hand-held, wireless, home energy monitor, and a suite of optional "smart" fixtures that encourages consumers to take control of their electric spending and environmental impact by displaying their energy usage and the impact of that usage on the environment. The EOS provides tools to breakdown home energy usage into more manageable segments; including features that allow the consumer to monitor and control individual appliances and lighting using "smart" switches, dimmers, and outlets. Perhaps the most innovative component of this system is EEK, the Efficiency Evaluation Keeper designed by Widefield Tech's collaborative partner CityGrow Technology, Inc., which collects data from the "smart" fixtures to quantify the consumer's current usage, make recommendations to improve energy efficiency, and, most importantly, execute those recommendations with the push of a button.
