Abstract

The behaviour and actions of users can impact on the energy efficiency of products. By using products unnecessarily or inefficiently even a product which has been designed and built with highly efficient technology or materials will still use or waste energy. This paper demonstrates and develops a methodology for quantifying the energy impacts of user behaviours. Measuring the amount of energy used by a specific user action is essential for engineers and designers to make decisions as to how best to approach the redesign of a product, creating lasting and beneficial energy savings.
