People who use a building largely influence energy consumption and waste. Often the users aren’t aware of their consumption and don’t see how their behaviour influences energy consumption. MOBISTYLE will change this!
MOBISTYLE aims to lessen energy consumption and stop the waste of energy in our buildings. Most modern buildings are equipped with advanced building automation systems and sensors measuring vast amounts of different data types of building performances (mostly related to energy performance of buildings or thermal comfort). These data however are usually unavailable or incomprehensible for the users of the building, especially for the residents.
MOBISTYLE links information about energy consumption to information about for instance quality of indoor environment, personal health and more. This information is processed in an accessible dashboard or game and presented to the users. By using these tools the users gain more insight in their consumption, but there is more: they receive tips to improve their behaviour. This way energy consumption is reduced, and a healthy lifestyle is promoted/motivated.
MOBISTYLE wants to increase consumer awareness and promote behavioural change by offering attractive, personal information and tips about energy consumption, indoor environment , health and lifestyle through a dashboard or a game. Offering understandable information about energy, health, and lifestyle will motivate the users of a building to change their behaviour. It offers consumers more and continuous incentives instead of only information about energy consumption.
The dashboard and the game are now being demonstrated in five countries: Poland, Slovenia, Denmark, Italy and the Netherlands (amongst others in our Zuid office).
