In this talk we report on our recent studies of energy use and cooking in the home. Using a pioneering method combining fine grained accounts from embedded sensing combined with qualitative interview data we uncover how everyday life intersects with energy demand and GhG externality. Our work enables us to shed light on where eco-feedback interventions could be aimed and raises questions about existing approaches based on 'smart grid' enabled energy portals and in home energy displays. In the second half of the talk we suggest how the detailed study of cooking reveals new opportunities for HCI and Ubicomp design.
