Abstract

The paper presents the “Energy Awareness Displays” project that makes hidden energy consumption data visible and accessible for people working in office buildings. Besides raising awareness on the topic and introducing relevant conservation strategies, the main goal is to provide dynamic situated feedback when taking individual consumption actions at the workplace. Therefore a supporting infrastructure as well as two example applications to access and explore the consumption information have been implemented and evaluated. The paper presents and discusses the approach, the developed infrastructure and applications, as well as the evaluation results.
