Researchers say that the increase in online shopping, video streaming, and employees working from home have turned Americans into homebodies. Surveys show Americans spending a full 8 days more at home, with those 18-24 spending 70% more time at home than others. These trends have implications for energy, where usage is down by around 1,000 bTU in transportation and non-residential spaces. Though researchers can’t quite explain the shift, they’re interested in widening their perspective soon to find definite answers.
