Design of a Dashboard to Promote Environmental Behavior for Energy Efficiency in the Workplace

The Intelligent Dashboard for the Occupants [ID-0], provides building occupants access to their own building performance indicators specific to their office space via a web-based user interface.

ID-O is the portal for the occupants to monitor the energy consumption of his/her office equipment (plug-load devices), get energy savings recommendations, and control their equipment (components connected to the plug-load meters).

The goal of the ID-O is to empower the occupants to achieve energy savings through monitoring and feedback while simultaneously increasing occupant comfort and satisfaction through use of control mechanisms.
