Abstract

Community engagement is part of a common vocabulary among authorities and other stakeholders associated to energy conservation in the UK. And it has been a concern also for technology designers. In this paper, we present three stories of technology design for energy conservation and the need to engage people with that. We introduce some possible approaches, creating a scenario for discussions among the workshop participants.
