Young Explorers for Energy Savings
Young Explorers for Energy Savings was a project aimed at engaging households to save energy in a fun way. Pupils from the schools of Djurgården and Skogstorp in Eskiltuna were made “energy savers” in their own households. Using their mobile phones, connected to the household electricity meter, pupils could save energy in their homes in a fun and interactive way. In total 127 pupils participated, and energy savings in households reached just over 11 %.
The project was funded by the Swedish Energy Agency. Collaborators were Mobile Interaction, Eskilstuna Energy and Environment, SEVAB and Interactive Institute, and Mattias Svahn from the Stockholm School of Economics have researched the project. The project ran during 2011.
