The present work has been guided by principles of systematicity, ecological validity, complementarity of methods, and integration of science and art. LÄS MER
2. A Needs-Based Approach towards Fostering Long-term Engagement with Energy Feedback among Local Residents
Sammanfattning : In order to reach the current climate goals, energy consumption needs to decrease in all sectors, including households, which produce 20% of the European emissions. However, it is difficult to increase residents’ engagement in their household electricity consumption as it is an ‘invisible’ form of energy, the monetary incentives are often too small and environmental incentives are not very effective.

Sammanfattning : Improving our knowledge of drivers behaviour, especially in hazardous situations is a key to understanding why accidents occur and how to improve safety on our roads. Crash surrogate measures have proven to be very useful in traffic safety analysis. LÄS MER
5. Lighting Control Systems for Energy Saving and User Acceptance: State-of-the-art and future directions
Sammanfattning : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. LÄS MER
