IRacha - Rank utility charge at once

IRacha ranks utility rate based on the monthly charge. It does so in state and in the U.S as well. IRacha emphasizes on easy-to-use user interface so that the users can do anything by just clicking. Comparing this feature to http://en.openei.org/wiki/Gateway:Utilities, the website requires typing rather than just single clicking to do anything useful. This would be the first website to rank every utility monthly charge ...more »

Crowdsourcing Smart Meter Analytics

Some people create solutions that are looking for a problem. Others have hidden opportunities in need of a solution. This killer idea is to have an open source framework, based on Excel pivot tables and charts, where people would be able to post problems they have identified and solved using Smart Meter data. The contributor would upload a complete solution, including data, that a user could examine and modify to utilize ...more »

Adding intelligence to the last 1000' of power distribution

It is said that “Information is Power”. Automation systems gain their efficiency using sensor data paired with external data to direct where energy should be routed. The goal is maintaining occupant comfort, safety, and convenience. Doubling efficiency is the same as producing twice the energy, without the life-cycle cost of producing more generation. Changes in the way energy is produced have combined with a major ...more »

TROT - Truck Routing Optimization Tool

At any given moment in the US, significant numbers of heavy freight trucks (e.g. "18-wheelers", Class 8) are operated over long distances with less-than-full or even empty payloads. This deadheading results from suboptimal coordination between drivers, trucking companies, and customers with freight requirements. Based on fuel costs alone, the economic potential of optimizing annual truck journeys by even 1% is ~$1.1B/yr ...more »

A “Group-on” for Electric Utilities

Problem statement: We propose an app to drive and facilitate a new operation mode for electric utilities: neighborhood-level discounts as reward for reduced energy consumption in a smart grid setting. This idea is inspired by Groupon, a website that sells products based on consumer consensus. By analogy, we propose that when enough people collectively agree to reduce energy consumption or to shift energy consumption ...more »

Automobile social metering network

Automobile operators are not aware of how they could save money by increasing fuel efficiency in their vehicle. There is no vivid relationship between hard earned dollars and a driver’s driving profile. Consumers and automobile operators do not have a firm grasp on the total cost of providing energy to their automobile and how efficient or inefficient their automobile operates. I propose that automobile operators ...more »

My Electricity

Many people are seriously disconnected from the reality of what goes into providing a utility such as electricity. They would have no idea where their electricity comes from, or how it is generated. With this kind of disconnect, it is easy to fall into the trap of believing that it is limitless. An app could take a users location and based on the users city, could present information including the source of their electricity ...more »
