Energy Rehab is an interaction design concept developed by Marcin Ignac and Nina B. Nygaard Christoffersen, students of the Interaction Design Pilot Year in Copenhagen, a joint initiative between the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design (CIID) and the Danish Design School (DKDS). Energy Rehab Program utilizes interaction design technologies to engage users in efficiently organizing their domestic energy consumption. Using a human-centered approach the project benefits the user – by reducing their energy bills – while increasing their awareness and changing their energy consumption habits simultaneously.

With the potential ‘user’ at the core of their project the students created this comprehensive demonstration video:
