Visualization of Electricity Consumption: Software Prototype through Literature Survey

Abstract

Visualization of energy consumption is widely considered as an important means to assist the end-users and the energy managers in reducing energy consumption and bringing about sustainable behavior. However, there are no clear design requirements to develop the energy monitoring visualization. This paper makes a leap forward in identifying the functional and non-functional requirements through a systematic literature review (SLR) of 28 papers. Also, the recommendations to tackle the requirements are also presented, which would help the visualization designers or researchers in designing the visualization. Through the information from the SLR, a software prototype for ‘visualization of electricity consumption’ is proposed, which is created using open source software.
