Abstract [en]

Within the current Swedish housing market it is increasingly difficult to get a contract for a rental apartment, therefore people who might have had public housing as a first choice are forced to buy an apartment instead. When buying apartments they become part of housing cooperatives whereby the residents have in theory a high power to influence their living environment, but few people take advantage of that power.

We have studied housing cooperative engagement in Stockholm, Sweden, related to collective energy issues and the opportunities of supporting such engagement with design of interactive technologies. In this paper we present the results of a case study of amateur energy management in housing cooperatives and a concept for a housing cooperative energy app that aims both to support the work of energy managers and to provide other members with a low-effort entrance to collective energy matters.
