Origin Energy has said it will trial energy efficiency technology, including software from US company Tendril, in 5000 homes this year. The technology will give customers information on changing electricity use to lower bills and greenhouse gas emissions. Tendril, based in Colorado, is backed by a number of venture capital investors and GE. Victoria is the leader in introducing such technology, with all homes to be fitted with smart meters by 2013.
