What is an energy monitor?

An energy monitor or in-home display (IHD) is a device that provides real-time information to residents about their energy consumption. This device is typically part of a smart metering system and is designed to help you monitor your electricity usage in real time and use this data to manage and use electricity more efficiently.

Key features of an energy monitor or IHD include:

Real-time energy usage data

Displays the amount of electricity being used in real time. This can help you understand which appliance or activities is consuming the most energy.

Historical data

Allows you to view your energy consumption over different periods, such as daily, weekly, or monthly. This helps in tracking usage patterns and identifying trends.

Cost Information

Shows the cost of the energy being consumed, often allowing you to see the cost per hour, day, or month. This can help with budgeting and understanding the financial impact of energy use.

Tariff information

If the household is on a variable rate tariff, the IHD can display current rates and inform you about peak and off-peak times, enabling you to adjust their usage to save money.

Usage alerts

Can provide alerts or notifications when usage exceeds a certain threshold or when the energy consumption is higher than usual.

Connectivity

Communicates with smart meters via wireless protocols such as Zigbee. This ensures that the data displayed is up-to-date and accurate.

What is Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) Program?

The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) Program, previously known as the Energy Saver Incentive or Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) scheme, is a key initiative by the government of Victoria, Australia, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and encouraging energy efficiency in households and businesses across the state. Established in 2009, the program provides financial incentives for households and businesses to make energy-efficient improvements, resulting in reduced energy consumption, energy bills and carbon emissions.

In the state of Victoria, attaining energy efficiency and sustainability is paramount. The VEU program is a progressive initiative by the state government that propagates and promotes the idea of energy efficiency and sustainability among VIC households and businesses by offering opportunities to lower their energy bills and carbon footprint.

Key features of the VEU Program

Incentives and rebates

The program offers rebates and incentives for a variety of energy-saving activities and products, such as heat pumps, air cons, weather seals, and energy monitors.

Approved products and services

Only certain products and services that meet the program’s guidelines qualify for the rebates and incentives. These include LED lighting, energy-efficient water heaters, and efficient heating and cooling systems.

Accredited providers

The upgrades and installations are carried out by accredited providers (APs) to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the energy-saving measures.

Certificates (VEECs)

The program operates through the creation of Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates (VEECs). Each certificate represents a specific amount of greenhouse gas emissions reduction achieved through the energy upgrades.

Legislated Targets

The Victorian government sets annual targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions. Energy retailers are obliged to meet these targets, which drive the demand for VEECs.

Environmental and economic benefits

The program aims to deliver environmental benefits by reducing the overall carbon footprint of the state. It also aims to provide economic benefits through reduced product and energy costs for participants.
