open in viewer

Sponsored by Worcester Bosch and The University of Worcester, the Energize Worcester Project evaluated the home heating behavior of student tenants in in houses near the St John's Campus. The team surveyed tenants, interviewed landlords, analyzed boiler logging data to supplement our research into what factors affect students' energy consumption. We found that smart technology can be used to effectively manage heating systems as well as aid the tenants in navigating difficulties surrounding common billing methods. From these findings, we recommend that the University and landlords educate students on energy-conscious heating habits and landlords explore alternative billing methods to incentivize tenants to curb heating use.
