Short description

The project’s aim is to combine research in behavioural science with modern technology on digital platforms and artificial intelligence (AI) in order to explore effects of nudging on energy use in the building sector.

Through a mobile app, residents are encouraged to make environmentally friendly choices, primarily in order to decrease their energy consumption. In a first phase of the project, the mobile app is developed. In a second phase, the app is tested among residents in selected buildings and possible changes in energy consumption and other environmentally related behaviours are measured.
