This is still a draft because I did not see my promoter yet and I except to get some new insights when I start to write more parts for my thesis. Suggestions for a better title/abstract are always welcome!
update: title and draft are updated -> you can check it out here!
Title:Creating an energy competition between households Abstract: This thesis describes an experiment in which households enter an energy competition. In order to rank first, their electricity consumption must be the least over a certain period. Information about their usage and that of their competitors is visualized inside the homes on a display where instead of numbers, words light up. The reason for this is that numbers in kWh and Euros could be difficult to understand for participants and therefore could be misinterpreted by them. In this case, the display interprets the numbers and tells the competitors if they are doing well or not in comparison with the others. Besides reporting on the experiment, this thesis also houses a technical part in which the building of the different blocks -needed to do this experiment- is described.
