Title Motivating end-users behavioral change by combined ICT based tools and modular information services on energy use, indoor environment, health and lifestyle
Duration October 2016 - March 2020
Coordinator Huygen Installatie Adviseurs
The overall aim of MOBISTYLE is to raise consumer awareness and motivate behavioral change towards energy efficient building usage by providing attractive personalized combined knowledge services on energy use, indoor environment, health and lifestyle, by ICT-based solutions.
The objectives of the project are:
- Beside allowing the end user energy monitoring to offer the end user information on occupant’s health and their indoor environmental quality. To complement the existing energy monitoring system with body monitoring by several low-cost non-intrusive wearables and indoor environment evaluation by installing state-of-the-art smart sensors.
- To transform measured data into understandable information for identified user profiles raising awareness on energy use, health and indoor environment.
- To develop easy to use ICT-based tools which will make energy monitoring a well-accepted and attractive ‘daily activity’ (routine).
- To motivate behavioral change of end users by combined modular information on energy use, health and lifestyle.
- To deploy and validate the developed solutions for 5 demonstration cases featuring different building types and end user types: patients in a rehabilitation clinic, residents in a social housing, students and staff in university buildings, residents living in a smart city, guests staying in a hotel.
- To foster new business models and applications.

Register now for the MOBISTYLE workshop organized during the BEHAVE conference
Under the H2020 funding schemes, EU is supporting projects having the common objective to demonstrate that ICT-based solutions can contribute to saving energy by motivating and supporting behavioural change of energy end-users. The H2020 MOBISTYLE project took the initiative to organize a joint workshop during the BEHAVE 2018 conference to discuss the projects approaches, results and to share lessons learnt from these different EU projects dealing with the same topic as MOBISTYLE: end-users engagement and energy conscious behaviour. Through pitches introducing the sister projects (Session I) and by facilitating open discussions among the invited speakers (Session II), the workshop will adopt a user-centric approach to exchange ideas, share the projects’ lessons learned, brainstorm on current and future challenges in the area of ICT solutions development encouraging behaviour change.
This pre-conference workshop will take place on September 5th in Zurich and will gather the expertise of five H2020 on-going sister projects financed between 2014 and 2016, including – but not limited to – MOBISTYLE, ENTROPY, ChArGED, PEAKapp, GAIA, GREENSOUL and GREENPLAY.

MOBISTYLE fourth project meeting outcome: MOBISTYLE workshop to be held at BEHAVE Conference (Zurich, 5/09/2018)
The 4th MOBISTYLE meeting was hosted by the project partner Holonix and took place in Milan, Italy during 23-24 April 2018. The main goal of the meeting was to revise the overall project's progress until the first reporting period (March 2018). Based on this revision, a detailed plan of the MOBISTYLE related activities still to be executed was done in order to come until summer 2018 to the deployment of the first ICT solutions. The consortium partners agreed on final steps covering the three areas:
- Revision of the MOBISTYLE Behavioural change action plan for each demonstration case
- Integration of the developed methodology in the MOBISTYLE ICT solutions (this lead to a development of two applications: the MOBISTYLE dashboard and the MOBISTYLE game);
- Demonstration case assessment and preparation for deployment.
During the meeting, there was also a 2 hours joint workshop to exchange lessons learnt between MOBISTYLE and its sister project H2020 enCOMPASS project (funded in the same call 2016) where enCOMPASS coordinator Professor Piero Fraternali (POLIMI) joined the MOBISTYLE meeting. Both project representatives agreed that this workshop was useful to not just exchange lessons learnt so far but also to brainstorm on current and future challenges in the area of ICT solution development encouraging behaviour change. This also led to a decision that MOBISTYLE will host a workshop as a pre-conference event during the BEHAVE Conference on 5 September 2018, 9.00-12.00, together with the MOBISTYLE H2020 sister projects financed between 2014 and 2016; MOBISTYLE, ENTROPY, ChArGED, PEAKapp, GAIA, GREENSOUL and GREENPLAY.

The third MOBISTYLE project meeting: results
The 3rd MOBISTYLE meeting was hosted by the partner Tauron Dystribucia and took place in Wroclaw, Poland during 6-7 November 2017. The main goal of the meeting was to come to a step by step plan on how to develop MOBISTYLE tailor made modular flexible information services.
It was agreed by the partners that during solutions development and configuration phase, the building occupants will be included in the usability testing to see whether they find the solutions attractive and information easy comprehensible. Their feedback will be used to improve the solutions as this is one of the aspects of the people-centred approach: create with and for people.
