This project aims to study effective ways to reduce household energy use via, taking into account thermal comfort, energy use behaviour, and technology, and their interactions. Also, we will study important preconditions for the effective introduction of monitoring and control technologies to manage household energy use. Among others, we will study the effects of different types of feedback on household energy use.
The project is conducted by a team of human biologists, technologists, and psychologists. The project is funded by AgentschapNL, EOS Long term research projects
