Abstract

An essential element of a user-centred design approach is to understand the differences between the intrinsic energy losses of products due to their engineering construction and technology with the losses associated with their use. This argument for using user-centred design strategies is presented which leads to a methodology for the assessment of behaviour potential and energy impact for domestic energy using devices. From this assessment procedure, the significance of user related energy losses becomes clearer and recommendations for target products requiring an energy efficient redesign can be made.
