That’s the question the SmartSpaces project is asking.
We’ll blog about the project more as it goes along, but at the moment we’d like to encourage people to complete a brief survey that will help us to establish some baseline data.
So if you ever visit Birmingham Council House, the Museum and Art Gallery or the Margaret Street extension. It genuinely, honestly only takes 10 minutes to complete and will help us to assess the impact of the project.
SmartSpaces is a three year, EU funded project that aims to use digital technologies, including smart metering, to make significant energy saving in public buildings. Previously, Digital Birmingham were part of the, which attempted to do similar work in people’s homes. It’ll be interesting to see how SmartSpaces compares to that. In particular how much more or less people feel they are able to control their energy usage.
