Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"We find that despite lowering overall energy consumption, smart thermostat control algorithms can severely increase the winter peak heating demand through load synchronization during the early morning hours, when solar energy is unavailable. These peaks present unintended system-level consequences of focusing purely on local energy efficient control and can hinder the integration of renewable energy and electric heating."
