PARENT project is an EU project focused in enegy and people. Unlike other initiatives, that tend to emphasize the technological aspect of energy consumption, PARENT focuses in the human aspect.
With this objective in mind, it will make use of the mobile phone application Enerbyte; this will monitor the energy consumption and production of a number of users, and will even have gamification features, allowing to compare their performance.
Resourcefully is partner in the project. Together with Utretch University, we will explore how a group of prosumers (households that both produce and consume electricity) in Borneo Eiland (Amsterdam) interact with the Enerbyte software. The results gathered will serve to know how users react once they have extended control over the energy management in their house.
