Granlund is developing web-based building analytics tools and methods where building performance and users feedback are combined and represented through a single PULSE score.
This way we can better understand people’s level of comfort, energy consumption in the building with the building functionality and make the necessary adjustments.
Building users can provide user feedback via the web-based user interface or through feedback buttons. Metrix is aiming to transform inputs from sensors data in buildings into a performance metric by comparing actual measurements with predetermined targets from three different perspectives, system energy efficiency, indoor air quality and functionality. Pulse value combines the performance metric of a building with user feedback into one wellness score.
The theory of nudges comes from behavioural science and was pioneered by Nobel-winning Richard Thaler. It is now being studied as an alternative strategy to help reduce household energy waste.
