Theory-based taxonomy of feedback application design for electricity conservation: A user-centric approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Many consider electricity-consumption feedback applications a critical technology in alleviating energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In this paper, following the design science paradigm, I examine a design taxonomy of electricity-consumption feedback applications. I relied on an integrative theoretical framework and literature review to propose a comprehensive taxonomy for salient design elements of electricity-consumption feedback applications. Using a survey method, I collected data from general public to evaluate preferences for and relative importance of the design elements. I found a preferred set of design elements for the feedback applications. The results could serve as a basis to evaluate the design of existing electricity-consumption feedback applications and to help in studying the influence that design elements have on beliefs and behaviors related to individuals’ electricity conservation.
