Microsoft Hohm is an online application that lets homeowners and apartment dwellers track their energy use and receive personalized recommendations for saving energy. Using advanced analytics licensed from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, Hohm lets users set up a free account and enter details such as a home’s size, age, and type of heating and cooling, and then offers a tailored list of potential changes based on those details — for example, how to insulate an electric water heater. Several utility providers are also participating in Hohm, enabling their customers to automatically track actual usage and costs through the site.
