To cope with this overarching issue, some technological solutions such as Smart Grids, Internet of Things or Demand response are proposed. However, the majority of them overlooks the role of human beings in the equation. Moreover, the very nascent body of research combining human and machine intelligence proposes methods, frameworks, and guidelines which vary depending on the application scenario complicating the selection of gold-standards to ensure seamless cooperation between smart devices and people. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to provide a set of design-hypotheses to devise augmented objects that ally with their users to reduce energy consumption. We expect designers, engineers, makers or even hobbyists in the intersection between technology-enablers (through IoT) and behavioural scientists to bene\ufb01t from them. To this aim, we describe the results of a long-term study in o\ufb03ce-based workplaces, where participants were randomly assigned to di\ufb00erent experimental conditions (persuasion, dashboard, and automation) to increase their energy-e\ufb03cient behaviour. Grounded Theory analysis was applied over qualitative data collected during focus group sessions obtaining \ufb01ve themes around a central category. The resulting themes were linked to design-hypotheses for IoT devices which were then tested through the implementation of a new IoT object also conceived for the workplace.}, language = {en}, urldate = {2020-01-14}, journal = {International Journal of Human-Computer Studies}, author = {Irizar-Arrieta, Ane and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Garaizar, Pablo and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego and Retegi, Aiur}, month = jan, year = {2020}, keywords = {JCR2.006, Q2}, pages = {102393} }']

Thus, facing the reduction of energy waste and management has become a pivotal issue in our society. To cope with energy inefficiency, the scientific research community has identified the promotion of people\u2019s behaviour change as a critical field to foster environmental sustainability. However, the body of literature shows a lack of systematic methods and processes to reach a common ground when designing technology for promoting sustainable behaviour change. Therefore, this paper contributes with a thorough review and analysis of state of the art. Firstly, theoretical works related to behaviour change are collected and studied to clarify their main concepts and theories. Secondly, the different technologies, processes, methods and techniques applied in the field are reviewed to find diverse strategies in the application of the previously explained theoretical domains. Moreover, a wide range of systems developed to improve energy efficiency through human behaviour change is analysed (from augmented objects to the Internet of Things, digital applications or websites). Finally, the detected research gaps are listed to guide future research when aiming to raise the awareness of individuals through Information and Communication Technologies.}, urldate = {2020-04-29}, journal = {IEEE Access}, author = {Irizar-Arrieta, Ane and Gomez-Carmona, Oihane and Bilbao-Jayo, Aritz and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Lopez-De-Ipina, Diego and Almeida, Aitor}, year = {2020}, keywords = {Activity Recognition, Behaviour change, Behaviour modelling, FuturAAL, ICT, Intelligent Environments, Internet of Things, JCR3.745, Q1, Sustainability, Sustainable Behaviour Change, sentientthings}, pages = {52306--52322} }']

However, it is widely considered by many scholars as the panacea to overcoming the majority of societal issues. The case of energy efficiency as an action for tackling climate change is not different: demand-response proposals or occupancy-driven energy management systems crowd the current research agenda on energy efficiency. However, there are still very few studies that have reported the effects of automation in the mid or long term beyond energy reduction (eg emotional feelings derived to interact with automation, complacency to the devices or perceived value of the automation throughout the time). In this workshop article, we report scientific evidence of a study conducted in ten workplaces during more than one year where we found that automating some electronic devices of common use (ie moving away or preventing subjects from the control of these devices) in favour of comfort and energy efficiency, is associated with a reduction of the users' confidence in science and technology as a mean to solve all environmental current problems and reduce the willingness of people to act in favor of the environment.}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the {CHI} 2019 {Workshop} on {New} {Directions} for the {IoT}: {Automate}, {Share}, {Build}, and {Care}}, publisher = {arXiv}, author = {Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Garaizar, Pablo and Irizar-Arrieta, Ane and {Diego L\xf3pez de Ipi\xf1a}}, year = {2019} }"]

Indeed, user diversity and categorisation in the context of sustainable behaviour was already studied by some scholars in recent literature. However, the complexity of the individual present some open challenges that still have to be further investigated. In this work, behavioural theories and user characterisation are analysed together to better understand the human factors when trying to in\ufb02uence sustainable lifestyles and actions. Then, theoretical frameworks are combined and mapped in a novel user meta-model, coined FOX, that classi\ufb01es the individual dynamically taking into account its heterogeneity and diversity. The dimensions involved in the FOX proposal are explained by describing the categorisation of each dimension. Besides, an example of the potential application of the model is exposed to better contextualise the work presented. Finally, controversial aspects and emerging ideas of the proposal are equally discussed throughout the paper as well as we discuss the use of FOX model to inform the design of behaviour change interventions related to sustainability.}, language = {en}, urldate = {2020-01-14}, booktitle = {Proceedings}, author = {Irizar-Arrieta, Ane and Retegi, Aiur and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Laschke, Matthias and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego}, month = nov, year = {2019}, keywords = {behavioural theories, human computer interaction, sustainable behaviour change, user modelling}, pages = {82} }']

This approach issued by applying Grounded Theory analysis over qualitative data collected at ten focus groups sessions after running a one year study where participants were treated to different persuasive strategies. With these data, five design categories emerged to be taken into account in the conception phase when devising tangible objects that aim to form pro-environmental behaviour change at workplaces.

The existing literature on the field has demonstrated that \u2018one-size-fitsall\u2019 solutions tend to fail because they overlook addressing user diversity and the different motivations to behave proenvironmentally. Thus, accounting for user heterogeneity appears to be a successful approach to improve the accuracy selecting and developing behaviour change strategies for different user profiles and work-contexts. This paper addresses the ideation and design process of an Internet of Things (IoT)-based physical object, a coaster, to foster energy awareness in an office-based workplace. Putting the diversity of users in the centre of the process, the Iotdesign proposal links persuasive principles with user profiles in order to give personalised eco-feedback for each different user type.

The GreenSoul framework is further enriched by the deployment of lightweight edge-computing GreenSoul-ed devices, which reduce energy consumption by cooperating with other devices, smart metering equipment and, very importantly, with eco-aware users. The decision making process is supported by a socio-economic behavioural model, which provides the necessary understanding of occupant indoor behaviour towards transforming energy consuming devices into active pro-sustainability agents that inform users how energy-efficiently they operate them, provide notifications as to improve that aspect, and even adapt their own functioning to reduce energy waste. These eco-wise devices, which are coined as GreenSoul-ed Things, are explained in detail throughout the presented work as well as the sensor-based architecture that supports their operation.
