It has been suggested that providing feedback allows people to better understand their energy consumption behaviour and take the necessary actions to reduce energy consumption. Here, we present the time-load visualization, which shows percentages of energy usage by different categories of devices that contribute to the total energy consumption load over time. Time-load aims to assist users with visualization of variations in energy consumption by different categories over time, and their respective, and often very unbalanced, contributions to the total energy usage load.
