Abstract

Research on delivering high quality energy-related information on users' activities and consumption rates signify the effectiveness of such information for inspiring and motivating users to change their behavior towards more energy saving ones. However, the issue of making these behavior changes durable and integrated to one's lifestyle is still remaining a topic for further investigation. This paper attempts to encourage new ways of thinking about users' engagement in the energy management system of their community-based microgrid by combining computational means of feedback delivery with an incentive program, which requires users' self-organized collaboration and participation in the shared-energy community endeavor.
