eForecast

Project: TotalFlex

eForecast is based on the two first stages of Riche et al., (2010) framework for facilitating sustainable behavior: raising awareness and informing complex changes. To raise awareness eForecast display information about the household’s past electricity consumption pattern, which is very similar to other eco-feedback displays. To inform complex changes eForecast display forecasts about future electricity consumption as well as forecasts about price, availability of green energy, and grid demand. Providing such additional information is relatively new in relation to eco-feedback displays, and enables the user to assess and predict the past and future electricity consumption patterns of the household
