Several energy systems have been developed and studied to help occupants reduce energy usage by providing feedback about their consumption. But recently, a major challenge has emerged about how to enable users to make informed energy efficiency decisions based on consumption feedback. This is because existing systems only present abstract consumption data that are not related to the surrounding energy consumption context. This paper proposes a novel energy data analysis approach which leverages context-awareness to support users to take actions that improve energy efficiency. The approach consists of two stages: multidimensional analysis followed by case-based reasoning. The anticipated output of the analysis approach will be understandable and actionable feedback that helps occupants control their energy consumption.
