Energetic sustainability on university campuses relies on the efficiency and smartness of the energy systems, as well as the behavior of its users. The aim of this work is to identify the requirements and propose the design of a Smart Study Room that, besides relying on users' awareness about their energy consumption, might also rely on their feedback about issues that could affect the optimal use of the study room resources. This concept is presented in the paper as two-way awareness. To determine the requirements, a survey was conducted among 61 university students to understand: (i) their usual behavior at the study room; (ii) their complaints about the study room; (iii) the set of users' behaviors that, in their opinion, have a negative impact on the energy consumption; and (iv) the information of the study room that they would find useful and interesting to visualize. Based on the results of this survey the design of the smart study room was developed and presented.

Abstract

Energetic sustainability on university campuses relies on the efficiency and smartness of the energy systems, as well as the behavior of its users. The aim of this work is to identify the requirements and propose the design of a Smart Study Room that, besides relying on users' awareness about their energy consumption, might also rely on their feedback about issues that could affect the optimal use of the study room resources. This concept is presented in the paper as two-way awareness. To determine the requirements, a survey was conducted among 61 university students to understand: (i) their usual behavior at the study room; (ii) their complaints about the study room; (iii) the set of users' behaviors that, in their opinion, have a negative impact on the energy consumption; and (iv) the information of the study room that they would find useful and interesting to visualize. Based on the results of this survey the design of the smart study room was developed and presented.
