P. Ozoh, S. Abd-Rahman, J. Labadin . A Survey of Methods for Achieving Efficiency in Electricity Consumption. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 10, 7 ( March 2016), 1-9. DOI=10.5120/ijais2016451522
This paper investigates related research work on electricity consumption in buildings and outlines its context relative to improving efficiency in appliance usage by customers. The aim of this research is to study the impact of applying power-saving measures on appliance usage in order to reduce electric costs. The study focuses on a review of tools and methods involved in achieving efficient electricity consumption system with respect to minimization of electric costs and reduction of electricity wastage in the system. It also conducts a survey of various literatures involving the potential impact of incorporating power-saving measures on low-power and high-power appliances to allow for more efficient use of electrical appliances. The paper provides a number of recommendations for achieving efficiency in electricity consumption, when power-saving measures are applied to appliance usage.
