Eco families is a smart meter project created by Experientia in France that is helping to enhance and promote eco-responsible behaviours in family homes. Experientia carried out co-design workshops and consulting on this exciting advanced smart meter project (subtitles in English).
The Ecofamilies project was an integral reference in the research phase of a previous OpenIDEO concept idea called
Singapore Smart Grid Games
Ecofamilies Smart Meter Protoype
Ecofamilies Smart Meter Prototype
Singapore Smart Grid Games - a concept for a previous Open IDEO challenge.
The idea proposed that Smart Grid data would be collected from individual flats, blocks, entire housing developments and towns. This data is then vibrantly presented to local residents through playful interactive digital advertisements at public transport stations, where people feel most connected with their locality. Residents will be able to see how their block or street compares with others locally, and be presented with tips on how to lower their energy costs and recycle their waste more effectively.
