Energy and indoor climate visualisation to encourage households for low carbon living

Innovation Carbon emissions Energy consumption Sustainable living Australia

At present, building scale energy efficiency is often limited to the design stage; therefore, the post-occupancy energy efficiency of dwellings rarely gets reported. Australian households receive quarterly energy bills; however, these bills, which show aggregated energy consumption, are not helpful in understanding the breakdown of energy usage that would inform changes to the energy consumption behaviour or develop strategies for energy savings.

This pilot project was designed to address this gap in energy usage information through the development of an integrated visualisation platform to allow households to explore their indoor comfort conditions, and disaggregate electricity consumption and water consumption at a residential scale.
