Attempts to visualise energy and reconnect people [with energy!] Dr. Richard Bull
By its nature, ‘energy’ is an abstract and invisible force that is conceptualised or commonly defined in a number of different ways, for example as a commodity, as a social necessity, as an ecological resource, or as a strategic material.* *Burgess & Nye (2008), Re-materialising energy use through transparent monitoring systems, Energy Policy
3 research projects funded by DUALL Greenview PROCO2
the aim? To understand the role of ICT in reducing energy consumption of a large scale public building through the design of an ICT interface connecting building users to their electricity consumption.
Baseline Evaluation & Switch off
the aim? To design a leading edge smart phone and web based application enabling building users to understand the energy consumption of the buildings across DMU.
Transparency The principle idea is to reveal the level of energy variations in near real time in precise university building locations using augmented reality tools on common smartphones.
Empedia and Augmented Reality The Empedia (www.empedia.info) platform has been developed under a KTP agreement between De Montfort and Cuttlefish Multimedia for iphone and Android platforms It will be enhanced with an Augmented reality browser for Greenview applications
the aim? To develop an ICT based decision making tool to enable DMU to reduce scope 3 emissions, notably procurement
DMU Greenhouse Gas Emissions by Sector and by Scope (2008/09)
