This week, data collection of our field study approaches completion. Karl ran a study session with a large student household last week. Josie and Andrew ran another one this week. The interviews seemed to confirm our initial hypothesis that motivations for reduced electricity consumption vary somewhat consistently between our three populations of interest–students, nuclear families, and older adults. On another update, we’ve got our first interview audio transcribed and we will start the data analysis soon.
