A proven means of increasing the energy efficiency of smart buildings is the direct involvement of the people living in them. Information, comparisons and energy-saving tips motivate the residents to actively participate in energy-saving measures.
In order to be able to implement energy saving goals in smart buildings, it is necessary to involve the people involved. Raising awareness of one's own consumption and the savings potential promises more commitment on the part of the residents. This makes it quicker and easier to achieve the reduction target and also ensures that the change in household energy behaviour is not temporary, but long-term and sustainable. The resulting outcome is a permanent saving in energy costs.
The aforementioned inclusion of the residents of smart buildings is achieved through detailed information regarding costs and consumption. Via the free CLEMAP app, residents are shown exactly which appliance category accounts for which share of the total consumption data. This both identifies potential savings and ensures awareness of one's own consumption. In addition, the statistics reports sent by mail compare one's own household with others. These comparisons motivate people to bring their own consumption below that of their neighbours and thus contribute to saving energy. In addition, the energy consumed or saved is compared with everyday things such as a tram ride or a washing machine cycle, which makes it easier to classify the energy data.
The statistics reports by mail are currently being used in the research project Social Power Plus, which is being carried out on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. Read in the blog post how more energy can be saved by involving the residents.
