The UK Design Council's RED Group needed background research and sources of inspiration to supplement their work for the Future Currents energy project.
During August 2006 I wrote a series of blog posts for the UK Design Council RED Group about energy use, conservation, and sustainability.
My research supported the RED Energy Project Future Currents.
Research The goal of my research was to find current best practices and technology related to home energy use and conservation.
Topics of the blog posts included home automation, green taxes, negawatts, and the fuel poor, among others.
My research had a secondary benefit of providing some background for my thesis project.
