Energy Dashboards and Displays - Providing Information to Support Environmental Improvement
A collaboration of four JISC-financed Projects- DELTA, Greenview, Open to Change, and RECSO
Date: 14 June 2011
Time: 11.00 - 16.00
Venue: Said Business School, University of Oxford
Rising prices, carbon regulation, and HEFCE targets are all making universities and colleges pay greater attention to their energy consumption and carbon emissions. Better information about usage patterns, and changes over time, is a key part of taking action to minimise consumption. Energy managers have long understood this but hardware and software innovations are now enabling many more people to access and use energy data, and for it to be displayed in buildings. Many universities and colleges are taking advantage of these capabilities, but often in isolation. In addition, there is considerable uncertainty about how information should be provided in order to motivate changes in user behaviour.
The aim of this event:
- To share experience and learning about the topic, and
- To discuss how to most effectively motivate improvement, and the role that energy dashboards and displays can play within this.
For further information on the projects
The event has two elements, which can be booked separately - a morning workshop focused on information and behavioural change, and an afternoon session focusing on dashboards and displays. There will also be an informal barbeque at a nearby pub after the event. The event is being funded by JISC, and is a joint initiative of four JISC Green IT projects - DELTA at the University of Bradford (also involving the SusteIT initiative), Greenview at De Montfort University, Open to Change (De Montfort, Lincoln and Oxford Universities), and RECSO (Responsible Energy Costs, led by Forum for the Future).
