Look Back before Leaping Forward: Four Decades of Domestic Energy Inquiry

Mike Hazas, Adrian Friday, James Scott
2011 IEEE pervasive computing  
Reducing domestic energy consumption has a long, varied history, embracing pervasive computing, technology, sociology, and economics. The authors provide an overview and key references to help readers explore this rich field's background more deeply and broadly.

Adrian Friday is a senior lecturer at Lancaster University's School of Computing and Communications. His research interests include systems support for mobile and ubiquitous computing; ubicomp deployment; and the ways these technologies can be applied to sustainability, energy use, and greenhouse-gas impact. Friday has a PhD in computer science from Lancaster University. Contact him at adrian@comp.lancs.ac.uk. James Scott is a researcher at Microsoft Research's Cambridge (UK) lab, in the Sensors and Devices group. His research is in pervasive and ubiquitous computing, including novel sensors, mobile interaction, rapid prototyping, wireless networking, energy management at small (for example, batteries) and large (for example, homes) scales, and security and privacy.
