In the Building Energy Awareness Living Lab, we focused on measuring the social, economic and environmental impacts of innovations which improve sustainability awareness and behaviour for both building occupants, and decision makers.
In the first phase of the Building Energy Awareness Living Lab, we evaluated the impacts of Hello Energy - an innovation that includes both an energy management system geared to building managers, as well as screens displaying compelling information about energy and sustainability with the goal of activating building occupants and nudging sustainable behavour.
What we Measured
We measured three different Hello Energy packages in 13 buildings including hotels, student housing, multi-unit residential buildings and offices.
- Changes in awareness about energy use and sustainability in buildings among building occupants
- Changes in the intention of building occupants to improve pro-sustainable behaviours
- Changes in awareness about energy use and sustainability in buildings for building managers
- Improvements to decision making for building managers
