Highlights from the CLIMA workshop “Why people matter? Exploitation strategies for people-centred design TripleA-reno & MOBISTYLE projects”
In the framework of the 13th CLIMA Congress, held in Bucharest on 26-29 May, the TripleA-reno project showcased its results and methodology on 27th May during the joint workshop “Why people matter? Exploitation strategies for people-centred design TripleA-reno & MOBISTYLE projects” organized in collaboration with MOBISTYLE, H2020 project aiming to develop understandable information on energy, health and lifestyle that will motivate end-users to change their behaviour towards optimized energy use.
Both projects focus on a people-centred approach to reduce energy use in the EU building stock: in reason of this synergy, the workshop displayed how human factors play a pivotal role in energy consumption reduction, enhanced building performance and users comfort and health.
The workshop was chaired by Simona d’Oca (Huygens Engineers & Consultants), who introduced the TripleA-reno deep renovation journey of heroes. The MOBISTYLE project was presented by Dan Podjed (IRI-UL), presenting an applied anthropology approach on the importance of outstanding individuals and their stories for boosting behavioural change and finally energy savings, and by Ana Tisov (Huygens Engineers & Consultants), disclosing the MOBISTYLE methodologies fostering behavioural change.
The session was deeply targeted on the interaction with the public: attendees were requested to draw a storytelling canvas based on the TripleA-reno “hero’s journey” approach and to describe narratively how their fictive end-user could take advantage of the TripleA-reno gamified platform or of the MOBISTYLE tools to overcome barriers to the realization of energy saving investments or behaviours.
