There is little doubt that human demand for electricity has environmental consequences for the climate on earth. One response to combat increasing electricity demand and CO2 emissions is to research and develop smart home technology aiming to change how people consume electricity in their homes. This PhD project contributes with understandings of how smart home technologies can be designed to see how these are going to be sustainably beneficial for people in everyday life.
To this end, this PhD project investigates what characterises interaction design of smart home technology aiming to instigate sustainable energy consumption in the home and how such technology shapes sustainable energy consumption in everyday life.
All interested parties are welcome. After the defence the department will be hosting a small reception in cluster 5.
