Coventry University STudents’ Optimisation and Management of Energy Resources

The CUSTOMER was a Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) funded project - and part of the JISC Greening ICT Programme. The CUSTOMER Project aims to identify and implement ways of reducing the carbon footprint across a range of student accommodation types both by making savings in energy usage directly relating to IT and other energy using devices, and by using IT and serious games to engage students with energy usage reduction within their living accommodation. We developed and trialled a range of interventions that led to a reduced carbon footprint in student accommodation and provided good practice guidance for the sector as a whole.
