Abstract [en]

In common households today the awareness of the electricity, water and waste consumption are rather low. This generates a behavior that conicts with the existing goals of sustainable living. Together with Stockholm City and other companies The Interactive Institute is working with a project called Stockholm Royal Seaport, where the goal is to implement a solution for how smart grids and visualizations in the household could motivate a change of this behavior. This master thesis examines how to do this using an in-home display and ambient interfaces in an apartment. In order to motivate the users the goal was to create a dynamic and exploring solution, that would not cause them to loose interest. The result was an in-home display interface based on dynamic home screens, social comparison and achievements, and a couple of ambient interfaces located in the household. A presentation video was made in order to visualize the coherent solution.
