  1. 1. PUBLISHING ENERGY USE INTHE 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. 2. Activities that construct domestic living in Indianapartments. !Performing daily living and material consumptionin these contexts.!
  3. 3. As a matter of constructive design researchmethodology, to understand daily living withelectricity, I have deployed prototypes thatpublish and make open energy use in the fieldto reach inferences and hypothesis aboutmaterial usage in daily living.!
  4. 4. I! While the benefits in gaining open access and making energy useinformation 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 thedomestic 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. 5. I! A case of comparing daily energy use between two families in the same apartment block!
  6. 6. Family A lives in anapartment of 120sq meters !
  7. 7. Family B lives in a !280 sq meter !apartment !
  8. 8. - Family A lives in an apartment of 120sq 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. 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 120sq 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 theywould hardly pay eightdollars a month for all theenergy use there. !The father thinks that heand his family havecarried their habits fromAbu Dhabi to India. !
  10. 10. Such an inference questions how energy use habitsevolve in context of consumption over a longitudinalspan of time. !What are the programmatic implications of getting tounderstand peoples prior energy use context forconservation programs? !
