The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Colorado is researching how “smart energy technologies” will be incorporated into washing machines, microwaves, coffee pots, refrigerators and every other home appliance.
This is another example of a National Laboratory evaluating technologies in order to advise policy makers on requirements of the next generation of appliances.
Of course the industry and ultimately the consumer will have their say but, having an independent agency evaluate technology will help its deployment and use.
