Abstract

Monitoring and gaining insights on occupant behaviour requires a multidisciplinary approach and involvement of various scientific expertise. By bringing together the necessary scientific expertise a step forward can be made in understanding how the occupants behave, how they can be motivated, and how to stimulate them to change their behaviour based on targeted feedback and guidance. Finally, users could be provided of confidence of choosing the right thing and making the right decisions concerning energy, comfort and health.

This paper presents a research project funded on the framework of Horizon 2020. The proposed approach for behavioural change is to go beyond traditional incentives, including lifestyle monitoring in relation to health or indoor environment preferences. Therefore, principles and values should be targeted and the context of the behaviour should be enlarged, to raise awareness and towards sustainable behaviour change. The effect of different supplementary communications and interactive feedback on real energy use in combination with energy-related behaviour, indoor environment, health and lifestyle, should be tested to lead to improve end-user awareness.
