  1. PUBLISHING ENERGY USE IN THE DOMESTIC ENVIRONMENTS! INFERENCES FROM DESIGN INTERVENTION CASES IN INDIAN APARTMENTS ! Karthikeya Acharya! Doctoral Researcher ! Department of Design School of Art, Design and Architecture ! Aalto University! 18 th September 2012!
  2. Activities that construct domestic living in Indian apartments. ! Performing daily living and material consumption in these contexts.!
  3. As a matter of constructive design research methodology, to understand daily living with electricity, I have deployed prototypes that publish and make open energy use in the field to reach inferences and hypothesis about material usage in daily living.!
  4. I! While the benefits in gaining open access and making energy use information live and accessible at the end user level are by now aimed to help in energy conservation, I present a supportive design intervention case where opening energy use data has lead to reflecting on ones acquired habits from a longitudinal perspective. ! II! Also, when opening energy data is considered within the context of the domestic environments it is useful to look at the relation between energy usage and the notion of more and less private spaces of the home.!
  5. I! A case of comparing daily energy use between two families in the same apartment block!
  6. Family A lives in an apartment of 120 sq meters !
  7. Family B lives in a ! 280 sq meter ! apartment !
  8. - Family A lives in an apartment of 120 sq meters! -  4 member family! - Energy use= about 1.5 X of Family B ! - Family B lives in a ! 280 sq meter house! - 4 member family! - Energy use=1 X!
  9. Family has spent about 18 years in Mumbai, a city in India, where energy costs are very high because of energy being privatized.! - Family A lives in an apartment of 120 sq meters! They also mention that their -  4 member family! energy and water consumption - Energy use= about 1.5 X of Family B ! habits have developed over their stay in that city. ! Have lived in the Gulf - Family B lives in a ! state of Abu Dhabi for 280 sq meter house! about 25 years which had - 4 member family! very inexpensive charges - Energy use=1 X! for electricity and they would hardly pay eight dollars a month for all the energy use there. ! The father thinks that he and his family have carried their habits from Abu Dhabi to India. !
  10. Such an inference questions how energy use habits evolve in context of consumption over a longitudinal span of time. ! What are the programmatic implications of getting to understand peoples prior energy use context for conservation programs? !
