Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this dissertation, the issues of the increased awareness of energy use are considered. Energy technologies are continuously improved by energy retailers and academic researchers. The Smart Grid are soon customary as part of the energy domain. But in order to improve energy efficiency the change must come from the consumers. Consumers should be active decision makers in the Smart Grid domain and therefor a Recommender system suits the Smart Grid and enables customers. Customers will not use energy in the way energy retailers, and politicians advocates instead they will do what fits them. By investigating how a Recommender can be built in the Smart Grid we focus on parameters and information that supports the costumers and enables positive change. An investigation of what customers perceive as relevant is pursued as well as how relevancy can adjust the system. A conceptual model of how to build a Recommender is rendered through a literature review, a group interview and a questionnaire.
