Providing users with relevant information raises their awareness on the influence of their behavior on the energy consumption and comfort in their workspace. A user-building interface was developed as part of this research through a co-creation process. It provides the occupants of monitored offices with information on their electricity and heating consumption, comfort indicators (temperature and air quality), light control and hints and tips on how to improve their behavior. This contribution describes the methodology used to improve the behavior of users in a pilot building and the results of a 32-week measurement campaign.
