This project will examine the usability of these visualisation technologies to achieve these goals, investigate the best methods to evaluate the visualisations developed to ensure their effectiveness with consumers, and explore techniques for delivering high performance visualisations to consumers without the need for new devices.


The project will use residents on Keele campus as one of the focus groups in order to gain feedback regarding the use of smart meters. Anonymised smart meter data can also be used as input to determine usage patterns and the results of the project could be used within 发送 to trial smart meter visualisation techniques.

Project progress (June 2019):

  • Focus group surveys are currently being conducted.
  • 研究 and review of current persuasive technologies and energy feedback completed.
  • Investigation into User Centered Design as the model for the development.
  • Evaluating prototypes of new visualisations.
  • Paper accepted for presentation at the 16th IEEE International Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC 2019) – IEEE Smart World Congress 2019 in August 2019.
