University of Edinburgh Home Energy Advice Research Project

About University of Edinburgh Home Energy Advice Research Project

The University of Edinburgh and Changeworks are carrying out a home energy advice research study called IDEAL. IDEAL is a research project investigating how smart technology can help people find ways to use less gas and electricity in the home. It uses sensors to record energy use and details like temperature and humidity and gives feedback to help reduce energy use, while maintaining comfort and convenience.

The benefit to participating are that you will:
Gain insight into your home energy use
Receive a tablet used to display energy use information which can be kept after the research period has ended.
Receive tailored advice from University of Edinburgh experts
Hopefully save money on gas and electricity bills

Those interested need to meet the following criteria:
Be based in Edinburgh and the Lothians or South Fife
Have a combi boiler heating system with mains gas supply
Have home broadband
Do not have a prepayment or smart meter
Not planning to move home before June 2018

To get involved in IDEAL please email your name, address and contact details to:
IDEAL@changeworks.org.uk or call us on 0131 539 8610

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for University of Edinburgh Home Energy Advice Research Project are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
