Understanding Energy Use

This Horizon energy video looks at understanding energy use. Horizon has approximately 15 people in our energy team, working on multiple projects. The projects explore energy displays, future energy technologies and devices that inform people about energy use in some way and consider how to engage people to save energy.

Interacting Around Energy

This Horizon energy video looks at how we interact around energy and how people use energy within everyday life and in the workplace. Our research focuses on anything from the technical aspects of energy and the data that we get from energy monitoring devices, through to experimental studies on influencing the way that people might engage with an energy device, right through to focus groups with people discussing energy use throughout their everyday lives.

A look at some of the current research being undertaken by Horizon.
