One team engaged with the question of how people can be supported in keeping track of their electricity consumption. The result is the artifact "Ampere," which gives users a differentiated understanding of their energy consumption. The artifact displays in an abstract manner the current daily electricity consumption and the current year's consumption and relates it to a user-defined goal. To set up Ampere, users first enter a target value - i.e. the maximum level of energy consumption that they hope to adhere to. The four movable parts of Ampere continuously show whether the user meets or exceeds this target value in the defined period. The display is discreet, always present, and can be 'read' easily. Ampere motivates users to optimize their electricity needs.
