Tool for Monitoring Energy Consumption
Immediately relevant research supporting responsible resource management -- that's what iCORE Industry Chair, Power Quality, Dr. Wilson Xu and his team at the U of A are working on. Xu has developed Enertracker, a tool giving homeowners real-time data on the energy their appliances use. With this data, awareness, understanding and greater control over energy choices and options is possible. Through Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures, ideas become innovations... and innovations become high value products and services with economic impact.
