Study on Activity-Specific Feedback on Energy Consumption: A Seminar by Verena Tiefenbeck | October 8

Hamburg Hall A301 Auditorium, Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University


Dr. Verena Tiefenbeck, who leads the Bits to Energy Lab at the Chair of Information Management at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, will deliver a presentation titled, "Feedback, Fast and Slow – A Field Study on Activity-Specific Feedback on Energy Consumption." Digitalization increasingly provides the necessary tools to collect, analyze, and communicate data at population scale. In the energy sector, millions of smart meters have been deployed across the globe, making it possible to provide timely and specific feedback to firms and households on their energy consumption. Yet, most smart metering programs have resulted in very modest savings effects, creating a wave of disillusionment among policymakers and industry stakeholders.

This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided. The event is co-sponsored by the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation, and the Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center
