Designing digital technologies for supporting energy-related behavior change in the kitchen.
The kitchen is a central hub for household energy- and resource use. Cooling, cooking and washing accounts for about 50% of the use of household electricity. Furthermore, the production of food requires a considerable amount of energy, where calculations show that the one-third of all food that becomes food waste accounts for about 2% of the energy consumption.
This research group focus on the design, developing and evaluation of digital tools to help households change energy and resource-intensive behaviors related to kitchen practices.
