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.*<br />*Burgess & Nye (2008), Re-materialising energy use through transparent monitoring systems, Energy Policy<br />
the aim? <br /> 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.<br />
the aim? <br />To design a leading edge smart phone and web based application enabling building users to understand the energy consumption of the buildings across DMU.<br />
Transparency<br />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.<br />
