  • Pathways of Sustainable Behaviours
  • 2013

    • The aim of this paper is to chart different paths that users can follow to reduce the environmental impact that occurs during the use of an artefact. Through comparingsustainable behaviours found in own studies and literature, five pathways of sustainable behaviour were identified: Changed use, Mediated use, Regulated artefact, Maintenance and repair, and Choice of artefact. In Path 1 the user starts using an artefact in a more sustainable way. In Path 2 the user invests in a secondary artefact to mediate the use of a primary artefact. In Path 3 the users invest in anartefact that regulate a primary artefacts’ resource use. In Path 4 the user maintains an artefact in good condition and in Path 5 the user invests in an artefact that offersless resource consumption by default.

  • Target the Use Phase! Design for Sustainable Behaviour.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: The 6th International Conference on Life Cycle Management in Gothenburg 2013. ; , s. 1-4
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • One approach to further decrease the environmental impact of products is to target the use phase. According to the Design for Sustainable Behaviour approach different design strategies can be used to enable a more sustainable use of products by influencing the user’s behaviour. The strategies suggested include matching products to users’ current behaviours, enlightening users, spurring or steering theusers towards more sustainable behaviours, and applying a force dimension to the products. Empirical studies demonstrate the feasibility of different strategies.However further knowledge is needed on which strategies to apply in which situations and for what problems.

  • Use and Adoption of Interactive Energy Feedback Systems
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Proceedings from the IASDR Conference 2013, Consilience and Innovation in Design, 24-30 August 2013, Tokyo. ; , s. 1771-1782

    • Feedback is considered as one of the most effective ways to increase people’s awareness of energyconsumption. Literature commonly indicates that energy savings between 5-12% can be attainedwhen households get feedback on their consumption. However, to assess the actual saving potentialof energy feedback systems it is essential to investigate if, and how, people use the systems – ifthey adopt them into their everyday life. This paper presents findings from a six-months field studyin which 23 households were given online feedback on their consumption. The purposes of thestudy were to evaluate (i) the effects of interactive energy feedback on the households’ electricityconsumption and (ii) the extent to which they used the feedback web portal. In general, theparticipants were positive but the use of the portal was low, the dropout rate high and most households did not decrease their energy consumption. However, six highly motivated households used the portal frequently and decreased their consumption. The findings suggest that access to energy feedback does not per se make people utilize the information. However, if motivated people use energy feedback systems frequently it can increase their awareness and support energy conservation.

  • What’s in it for the user? Effects and perceived user benefits of online interactive energy feedback.
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Social Energi. ; , s. 1-14
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • To assess the effects and benefits of computerized energy feedback, an interactive energy feedback system was implemented in 23 households and evaluated in a six-months field study. No electricity savings could be observed for the households when comparing their consumption during the test period to the consumption during the previous year. However, the use of the web portal was found to vary considerably between individual households and a correlation between use-frequency and electricity savings was observed. The five households that accessed the feedback frequently managed to reduce their electricity consumption by an average of 9% over the test period. Furthermore, many households indicated, regardlessly of their use-frequency, that they experienced positive effects of using the web portal. Some specifically expressed an increased knowledge and awareness, which to some degree empowered them to reduce their consumption and change behaviour. The findings however suggest that many aspects such as contextual factors, personal capabilities and quality of life aspects influence households’ energy consumption and that access to feedback does not per se lead to savings. However, people that utilize the feedback information and are willing and capable of changing their situation can reduce their consumption and gain additional benefits that support energy conservation.
