User Friendly Tablets
Real time access to building's performance and renovation process
Analysis of User Research (Behavioral Mappings, Personas, User flows, Journey maps)
Assist with the Interface mock ups
Develop Sensible Building Data Handler, which takes real time data from the building and post-processes it to provide analysis functions and customised information to the building users and to investors in the renovation process. This user-friendly application will work on tablets to give users quick access to streamlined knowledge and awareness on how their building is functioning and how they can impact its performance.
The Sensible Building Data Handler will collect, analyse, and present to the user data such as building energy efficiency/performance, energy use, weather data, building use/occupation and indoor environmental quality.
AI for good
Smart alerts to minimize energy consuption
Analysis of User Research (Behavioral Mappings, identification primary users, user personas, user flows with many scenarios)
Conduct team's activities such as affinity diagrams and design sprints
Conduct user testings
Developing “Smart Alerts” to create Intelligent Energy Efficient buildings. “Smart Alerts” is the main AI powered functionality that this project will create. Its aim is to develop a web-based command centre that helps facility and energy managers to better monitor, analyse and predict the performance of any building portfolio in order to minimise energy consumption, reduce costs and meet net-zero targets.
Positive Energy Block
Achieve energy efficiency and production in an urban setting
Conduct user Research (surveys, interviews, on desk research)
Analysis of users (personas and user requirements)
About the project:
Limerick is one of two Lighthouse Cities selected by the European Union Horizon 2020 +CityxChange project. Together with fellow Lighthouse City, want to achieve a sustainable urban ecosystem with zero emissions and establish a 100% renewable energy city-region by 2050.
Building energy efficiency investments
Platform for building investments
Analyse external user Research (User flows, Journey maps, Scenarios)
Interaction design (Sketches, and low to High fidelity prototypes)
Conduct short design sprints
Conduct user testings to iterate the platform's prototype
Assist with development
Aiming to promote building energy efficiency investments. This platform will bridge the gap between building owners, interested in upgrading their buildings to consume less energy, and investors, that are willing to provide the capital investment and generate profit through energy bill savings following the retrofit.
