Welcome to Smarter Households!

Smarter Households

Play, Learn, Save: It’s in your hands

Smarter Households is about helping households to manage their energy use according to their own priorities, whether you are looking to save money, help the environment, or feel more comfortable at home.

The aim is to come up with practical ways of linking lifestyle choices to electricity and gas bills. Our team is developing an energy monitoring system to test in Orbit Group households in Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Worcestershire in 2016-17. This will power a real-time energy game and ‘3D dashboard’, tailored to each household, which can be viewed and played on a tablet.

We are now looking for participants for our energy dashboard and game trial.
