The transition to greener energy poses complex challenges to domestic energy demand management. To date, much research has looked at the technical aspects, however, in our work with Bristol universities, the Glow project takes a more citizen-centred approach. Our pilot study, involving homes in Glasgow and Bristol, aims to develop a novel computational system that allows residents to manage peak load shifts for the benefit of their neighbourhood
