“I believe that the project provides important and timely evidence and pointers for future policy development and delivery in energy efficiency. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, integrating social sciences with ICT and building science, has been critical to the project’s success, since it’s vital that visualisation approaches are properly understood in terms of how they work, for whom and in what context, as well as from a technological innovation perspective.”

“The e-Viz project makes a great contribution in improving the users relationship with energy. If we are to reduce our GHG emissions to meet our legally binding targets we have to improve our understanding of how we use energy and where wastage can be eliminated. Visualisation techniques play an important role in improving this understanding and the e-Viz project makes a valued contribution. At Innovate UK we are planning an extensive Visioning exercise to identify innovative solutions we will need to advance our journey to lower carbon emissions over the next 10 years. We see visualisation technologies as a key solution needed on this journey.”

“The eVIZ event held at Plymouth University on the 9th. September gave attendees a unique opportunity to learn more about how people interact with the building they occupy. The meeting also stressed the importance of data collection to inform key processes and practices. An excellent event with enjoyable presentations.”

“I found the meeting extremely useful, I often read proposals and don’t get a full understanding of the impact or size of the research involved - these events bring everything into focus. It was also interesting to see how the different disciplines interact and work together.”
