Abstract [en]

Today there is no mobile application that simultaneously indicates the electricity consumption of a household and the solar cell's electricity production. Our expectation of the mobile application Watt-sun is to achieve an increased level of interest, usage and understanding of solar electricity. The solar cell’s electricity production depends on the season, time of the day and weather, thus making it difficult to estimate the amount of electricity the solar cells produce. Watt-sun visualizes and compares the solar cell’s electricity production and the user’s consumed electricity using graphs. Watt-sun helps the user to distribute the electricity consumption over the day such that an increased proportion of the produced solar electricity is used. The result of the performed user tests indicates that the mobile application helps the user to increase the proportion of solar electricity out of the total electricity consumption. By utilizing the electricity of the solar cells more efficiently, it will in turn contribute to a reduced usage of other electrical sources. Accordingly, the emission's of greenhouse gases can be reduced.

Abstract [sv]

Idag finns det ingen mobilapplikation som samtidigt indikerar elförbrukningen i ett hushåll och elproduktionen från en solcell. Vår förhoppning med mobilapplikationen Watt-sun är att öka intresset, användningen och förståelsen av solceller. Solcellens elproduktion beror på årstid, tid på dygnet samt väder, vilket gör det svårt att uppskatta mängden el solcellerna producerar. Watt-sun visualiserar och jämför solcellens elproduktion och användares elkonsumtion med hjälp av grafer. Watt-sun underlättar för användaren att förflytta sin elkonsumtionen över dygnet så att en större andel av den producerade solelen används. Resultatet av de utförda användartesterna indikerar att mobilapplikationen underlättar för användaren att öka andelen solel av den totala elkonsumtionen. Genom att solelen utnyttjas bättre, kommer det i sin tur att bidra till ett minskat behov av andra elkällor och kan därmed minska utsläppen av växthusgaser.
