  • power strip with consumption display

    What a nice idea, Bridget. A surge protector or power strip with a display that shows real-time power consumption for each appliance that is plugged in to it. It would pay for itself because people would be more aware of their consumption (and its cost) and so they would be more careful about shutting things off when not in use, or buying equipment that used less energy. this would be a great thesis project! I can help Serdar develop an approach to carrying out further research into the technical issues surrounding this concept if this is something that he decides to pursue. steven.
