Project: Community Data-Loops for energy-efficient urban lifestyles

Despite targeted policies and technological innovations, household energy consumption is still increasing in Europe. This project seeks to break this impasse by enabling behavioral change through the design, implementation and assessment of learning feedback loops supported by a web-based platform. It will enhance individual and community learning processes and inform policies for the smart use of big data. The project is transdisciplinary and experimental, aiming at: a) understanding data-driven learning feedback loops between individuals and communities to enable behavioral change in energy choices, b) generating ‘Individual to Community’ and ‘Community to Policy’ loops through designing and testing a learning support software for data-sharing, c) analyzing and assessing the interaction among individuals and groups within this platform to inform wider policies for energy transitions. The project delivers: a) a prototype learning platform for sharing data about individual and community energy consumption choices; b) a plan for the marketization and wider application of this platform: c) policy recommendations for enabling learning and behavioral change towards reduced energy use. CODALoop combines cutting edge cognitive modelling, data analysis and qualitative research methods. It includes 11 partners with diverse backgrounds and focuses on a set of selected urban areas through a living lab approach.
