  author={Dimosthenis Kotsopoulos and Stavros Lounis and Cleopatra Bardaki and Katerina Pramatari},
Energy consumption is one of the widely recognised important factors that should be addressed, in reducing CO2 emissions towards addressing climate change. However, albeit the documented effect of public buildings, in specific, on energy consumption, only a limited body of research focuses on one of the most important factors that could limit it: employees’ energy consumption behaviour. Aiming to contribute to this path of research, we have identified gamification as an instrument that, when…

Employee Profiles and Preferences towards Workplace Gamification for Energy Conservation
A holistic view of users’ profiles and preferences in an Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled gamified mobile application that provides personalized energy-saving recommendation tips to employees, towards conserving energy and adopting a more green behavior at the workplace is formulated.
Exploring gamified persuasive system design for energy saving
This study draws on the challenges when using user types within gamified persuasive systems by highlighting the impact and the importance of considering existing energy saving behaviors (RQ2), which has not been addressed so far.


High reduction potentials for energy user behavior in public buildings: how much can psychology-based interventions achieve?
To provide decision makers with useful estimates of energy saving potentials, it is important to develop optimal intervention programs and relate actual savings (amount of energy) to a theoretical
Energy‐Related Behaviors in Office Buildings: A Qualitative Study on Individual and Organisational Determinants
An analysis of individual and organisational determinants of energy-related behaviors in office buildings and the interplay between the two is presented. Interviews and focus groups were conducted
Towards a Code of Ethics for Gamification at Enterprise
The findings show that, for gamification, there is a fine line between being a positive tool to motivate employees and being a source of tension and pressure which could then affect the social and mental well-being within the workplace.
Energy intelligent buildings based on user activity: A survey
The behaviour change wheel: A new method for characterising and designing behaviour change interventions
Interventions and policies to change behaviour can be usefully characterised by means of a BCW comprising: a 'behaviour system' at the hub, encircled by intervention functions and then by policy categories, and a new framework aimed at overcoming their limitations is developed.
Exploring Individual‐Level Factors Related to Employee Energy‐Conservation Behaviors at Work
The higher costs of energy have increased organizations' interest in searching for ways to reduce energy use. Typically, organizations have utilized structural or operational changes to decrease
Information Strategies and Energy Conservation Behavior: A Meta-analysis of Experimental Studies from 1975-2012 - eScholarship
Strategies that provide information about the environmental impact of activities are increasingly seen as effective to encourage conservation behavior. This article offers the most comprehensive
Motivating Residents to Conserve Energy without Financial Incentives
Given the aim to motivate people to conserve energy in homes, we need to understand what drives people’s energy use behavior and how it can be influenced. This article describes applied energy
