Abstract

This paper explores teenagers’ attitudes towards energy consumption. The research is part of a wider project with the goal of designing, developing and evaluating mobile solutions to change teenagers’ attitudes and behaviour towards energy. Diaries, stories, written scenarios and focus groups provided initial insight into teenagers’ attitudes. The use of multiple methods engaged teenagers in the project and resulted in data that was rich in detail and context. Initial themes that emerged for the data were: type of energy used, impact of energy use, sources of information, location and green teens. Findings will inform the design of mobile solutions for teenagers and help in the development of a behavioural change programme.
