This paper describes the methodology through which a
set of guidelines that inform the design and
development of energy-use reduction technologies for
teenagers were created. The presented research forms
part of a wider project that aims to design, develop and
evaluate mobile solutions to change teen attitudes and
behavior to energy consumption. In order to
understand how to approach the design of technologies
that reduce teen electricity consumption, researchers
engaged teenagers in a comprehensive user-centered
evaluation of relevant existing prototypes. The
evaluation feedback was used to generate a set of
seven guidelines that will inform the design and
development of future energy-reduction devices for
teenagers as part of the final stages of this overall
research project.
