Tariff experiment in Findhorn and end user interface development
Residents in Findhorn can now make the most of a cheaper tariff which is available when excess local renewable energy is available. It will be very interesting to see how people's energy behaviour changes. Also, development on the ORIGIN end user interface is ongoing. The resaerch team have been working with the 3 demonstartion communities to make the end user vibrant and engaging, The latest development has been a horse to visually show renewable energy availability currently.The faster the horse is moving the more renewable energy availability. If the horse is stationary there is no excess. This availability is also represented by a growing plant and a traffic light system.
