  20. 20. Henley Rise Eco Housing Project Monitoring & Feedback Remote monitoring of two properties Photovoltaics and solar thermal Local climate data Collection and analysis of energy generation data Collection and analysis of energy consumption data Meter readings Utility bills Semi-structured face-to-face interviews with residents Carbon coaching of residents Follow-up interviews with residents
  21. 21. Henley Rise Eco Housing Project What we learned People love their new homes I know everyone’s complaining about “Brilliant! Couldn’t get me fuel bills going up, out of here, I love it. but mine seems to Absolutely love it.” have gone down, so I’ve kept quiet at work. … I can’t “I  keep  thinking  it’s  a  big  place,   complain!” it  must  take  some  hea6ng,  but   I  must  admit,  you  can  have  the   “When we come to view it and sign for it we were just hea6ng  on  for  a  while  and  it’ll   gobsmacked at how nice it were, and the whole estate, last  for  like  a  day  and  a  half.”   cul-de-sac, all the fields and everything. It was like something out of a picture. … I’d never been in a house like this before.”
  22. 22. Henley Rise Eco Housing Development What we learned Benefits aren’t being maximised Wide range of performance Some exceed expectations, but… PV: 1800kWh not 2400kWh Solar Thermal: 600kWh not 1050kWh Utility company issues Test each system to diagnose problems Complete G83 agreements on tenants behalf
  23. 23. Henley Rise Eco Housing Development What we learned Technologies working at optimal level? Loss of pressure in solar thermal systems Maintenance operatives unaware Lots of isolating switches How do we spot these problems? Guidance to customers about expected levels of performance Extend annual servicing to include diagnostic checks
  24. 24. Henley Rise Eco Housing Development What we learned Developers shouldn’t “fit & forget” Installation is easy It’s someone else’s job Empty properties at handover A waste of capital investment? A wasted opportunity for residents?
  25. 25. Henley Rise Eco Housing Project What we learned A user manual isn’t enough Complicated user interfaces Too much jargon “They showed us the boiler, and I was like, that is amazing, I’ve never seen a boiler like that in my life, it were like something out of Star Wars.” User friendly reference documents Increased 1:1 instruction A point of contact
  26. 26. Henley Rise Eco Housing Project What we learned People need targeted advice Practical help without patronising Jargon busting The rebound effect Dealing with Utility companies Understanding Utility bills Promote informed decision making A place to share their experiences “I wouldn’t know where to start because I’ve never done anything like that before”
