  8. 8. “At Gateway, we help save energy by switching off the lights and projector when we don’t need it. When the classroom is bright enough, we don’t need the lights. We also like being able to remind our teachers to turn things off. Doing this at school has helped me think about turning things off at home”. - Maryann (pupil)
  9. 9. - Edel Boyle, Sustainability Teacher, Gateway primary school “The consumption data from each classroom really helped to keep pupils engaged. They told off teachers who forgot to switch off unused appliances”.
  10. 10. Transforming Energy Behaviours & practices: Possible Cassandra Use Cases
  11. 11. •Symbolic Modeling Using pseudo figures and/or images to represent consumption data has greater impacts on behavioural change. •Verbal Instruction Desired behaviour described in detail along with instructions can change behaviours •Social Norms An awareness of the energy saving behaviours of close and normative others can change behaviours. •Feedback Information Resource showing direct consequences of behaviour can transform behaviours •Rewards Compensation for consistent performance of desired behaviour can help entrench long term behavioural change •Progress Report Access to Progress made can change behaviours. Progress inspires progress. Cassandra could be useful in simulating and testing some assumptions about energy behaviour-change
  12. 12. Social Norms: What are Others doing? • A system that can model average consumption in a neighbourhood cluster or most energy efficient consumption in a cluster Domestic Challenge • A system that supports a league table of the most energy efficient or greenest office(s) in a stipulated period Organisational Challenge
  13. 13. POSSIBLE CASSANDRA USE CASE
  14. 14. Are we making any PROGRESS? • A system that can simulate customers’ ability to see their energy savings progress over a specified period and possible impacts Domestic Challenge • A system that supports an awareness of impacts of recognition of consistent energy efficiency practice. Organisational Challenge
  15. 15. POSSIBLE CASSANDRA USE CASE
  16. 16. Feedback: What are the direct consequences of my energy choices? • A system that supports an awareness of impacts of live consumption information to consumers in multiple formats Domestic Challenge • A system that supports an awareness of impacts of live consumption data on a dashboard in a staff/student breakout area Organisational Challenge
  17. 17. POSSIBLE CASSANDRA USE CASE
  18. 18. Rewards: What’s in this for me? • A system that enables consumers set personal targets and rewards achievement Domestic Challenge • A system that supports easy and quick generation of reports on organisational, departmental and/or individual progress Organisational Challenge
  19. 19. Verbal Instruction: What should I do? • A System that contains energy saving ideas customised for each case and behavioural outcomes desired. Domestic Challenge • A System that contains tips and templates of sharp, pithy messages customised for each case and behavioural outcome desired. Organisational Challenge
  20. 20. Symbolic Modeling: How can we represent consumption more visually? • A system that contains templates for a more creative representation of consumption, budgets, rewards, kwh, Co2, etc Domestic Challenge • As above Organisational Challenge
  21. 21. Why symbolic modeling is important today
  22. 22. ‘Sensorience’ and new forms of engagement Human senses evolve along with the kind of technology they are socialised to. Generally, human senses have evolved along with the visual technological enablements of the 21st century.
  23. 23. In the past 10-20 years there has been a social and cultural shift to the visual over numerical, verbal and textual forms. How do we adjust to this? Electronic communications, starting with the telegraph, extended the communications process beyond Transport and the human body. Energy and our evolving Visual Culture
