Abstract: With the development of smart-grid technology and the access of distributed generation (DG), the supply and demand of home energy will be greatly changed as well as traditional home energy consumption pattern. This paper discusses the major changes in home energy consumption pattern from three aspects: energy production, measurement and management. In the first part, it proposes three power supply architectures for the home micro-grid utilization, which are AC power supply, hybrid of DC and AC supply, and DC power supply. It points out that the control mode of home energy control center is the most important factor in enabling home micro-grid“plug-and-play”. The second part focuses on the electricity energy measurement. By comparing different electricity metering methods, it provides a new measurement mode based on network data, i.e. network measurement, to enhance demand-side management and gives its application scheme in smart home. In the third part, combining the new features of home energy efficiency management, it designs one new“cloud+terminal”energy service architecture to enable ubiquitous management of smart home energy efficiency, and also analyzes the impact of the new mode on the flexible access of DG. The new smart home energy consumption innovation optimizes home energy use and load management, improves home energy efficiency and reduces electricity cost.
