23rd January 2018

Households in Edinburgh and the surrounding (EH and KY1-7,11-12) postcodes are invited to take part in the IDEAL Research Project

IDEAL is a research project investigating how smart technology can help people find ways to use less gas and electricity in the home. It uses sensors to record energy use and details such as temperature and humidity and gives feedback to help reduce energy use, while maintaining comfort and convenience. Households in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife (KY1-7,11-12) are invited to take part.
The main criteria to be eligible are as follows:

  • Participants must have a gas combi boiler heating system.
  • Participants must not be planning to move before the end of June 2018
  • Participants must have home broadband

Please note: Homes with a smart meter are not eligible due to smart meters not being compatible with the energy monitoring equipment.

Benefits of participating include:

  • Gain insight into your home energy use
  • Receive tailored advice from University of Edinburgh experts
  • Receive a tablet used to display energy use information
  • Save money on your gas and electricity bills

To register your interest in this cutting edge smarter home energy research please email IDEAL@changeworks.org.uk or call us on 0131 539 8610 before the 9th of March 2018.
