In-Home Device Pilot Program

Small changes, big impact

Our household energy behaviours are something we can easily modify to respond to the climate emergency, save on our energy bills, and work towards a Zero Carbon Moreland!

Moreland Energy Innovation Lab (MEIL) is an initiative of Moreland City Council and Australian Energy Foundation (AEF).

MEIL is undertaking an In-Home Device (IHD) Pilot Program, that will involve the recruitment of interested households in Moreland.

What is the In-Home Device Pilot Program?

Interested Moreland residents will be given a free IHD to track their energy usage. Participants will also be provided with information packs that will give tips, tricks, and behavioural cues for our day-today energy practices.

AEF and Moreland City Council hope to gain insight into the benefits and barriers of implementing both IHDs and energy behaviour change ‘tools’ in creating empowered households in Moreland.

Why be involved in the In-Home Device Pilot Program?

Help Moreland become Zero Carbon

Moreland's community energy saving practices can make a BIG impact on climate change.

Real time monitoring with In-Home Device

An in-home device (IHD) shows household energy use in real time, via a simple smartphone app.

Save energy

Using an In-Home Device helps you clearly see what appliances may be using excess energy and help you to reduce your use.

Reduce household energy bills

This program is not just about saving energy, it's about saving on our electricity bills.

Winter energy saving tips

Saving energy doesn't mean being cold in winter, along with an IHD, participants will be provided with energy saving tips & tricks.

Frequently asked questions

Our individual energy saving practices and behaviours can make a BIG impact on climate change, as the amount of household energy consumption accounts for a substantial proportion of total energy consumption worldwide.

An IHD shows household energy use in real time, via a simple smart phone app. This app helps clearly see which appliances may be using excess energy and hence help you reduce your electricity usage.

IHDs are installed by a registered installer, but don’t worry: all of the nitty-gritty will be organised for you by the team at AEF. The installation is quick, free, and requires no modification to your electrical panel.

During the installation appointment the installer will:

  • Install the device to your electricity meter.
  • Use your energy bill to program the IHD with your electricity plan details (so it cancorrectly report your energy costs in the app).
  • Help you to download and connect the app to your phone.
