A set of interactive tools to inspect the energy consumption at the Interactive Telecommunications department at NYU.
This wall installation is a simple dashboard that explains the energy consumption on the department floor, currently as well as over the past week. The aim of this is two-fold; make people aware of the energy that is being consumed per room/per equipment, and contextualize energy as a fun and tangible concept. To do so, we compare energy used in the building to energy in a potato or energy to use a hair dryer. This project was exhibited at the ITP Spring Show in 2016.
The data for this was obtained from Enertiv.
This mobile app informs users about the energy usage in key rooms/areas in ITP.
On selecting a room, the power consumption over the last 24 hours is visible along with the breakdown of energy usage by equipment in that room.
To make the concept of energy a little lighter, there is also a comparision of energy consumption with the energy in big macs and in CFL light bulbs.
