Abstract

Research indicates that new technologies, such as smart meters, can motivate domestic energy savings via behavioural change. Using participatory and co-design methods, our research is exploring how technological innovations might also facilitate behaviour-based energy savings in large organisations. By establishing ‘living labs’, we are working closely with two public-sector organisations in order to understand behaviours surrounding energy use, and to subsequently engage relevant stakeholders in a process of co-designing innovations focused upon achieving energy savings. This paper introduces our research approach and describes how initial workshops are informing an ongoing process of co-development within our two living labs.
