||Playing to conserve energy: the ICT-enabled eco-challenge in offices
||R Decorme, E Thibault, E Leang
||The ECOFFICES - Energy Challenge within Offices - experiment is an energy competition between employees taking place in a building located in the Sophia Antipolis business park. The concept combines advanced energy metering, energy awareness and benchmarking to create an incentive scheme for energy savings. The contest is raising a high stimulation level by rewarding eco-friendly energy behaviour.The paper elaborates on the challenge methodology/protocol, and its technological infrastructure. It presents both technical (energy savings, installation, reliability, etc.), socio-economic and behavioural (user acceptance, etc.) approaches.ECOFFICES is a ‘PACA Labs’ project and involves four partners (OSMOSE, CSTB, INRIA and CASA) in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. It has started on September 2010 and will end on September 2011.
