Welcome to the first GreenSoul project newsletter. This is the first in a series of newsletters on the work and achievements of the GreenSoul team, partners, participants and stakeholders.   In this first newsletter, we summarize the objectives of the GreenSoul project.

The main objectives of the GreenSoul project are to achieve higher energy efficiencies and savings in public buildings by altering the way building tenants, users and stakeholders consciously use energy-consuming shared devices such as lights, printers, coffee-makers etc., and their personal devices such as PC’s, tablets, mobile telephones, and other pluggable devices.

GreenSoul will apply the following two strategies to achieve those goals:

  • It will embed intelligence into a number of devices within project buildings so that those devices will become networked devices and can autonomously analyze and regulate their maximum energetic efficiency mode.  These networked devices will be known as GreenSouled devices will learn from users’ habits, acting only when wasteful energy behaviour is detected or where users do not heed device suggestions.
  • The GreenSoul project will motivate users to increase their energy–awareness in order to persuade them to change their personal e-consumption habits using a variety of techniques that will range from persuasive social applications & gaming to physical interaction mechanisms linked to networked devices.

For a first glimpse of the GreenSoul project, its objectives, purpose, test cases and pilots, please click on the following links for our Fact Sheet and Public Presentation material.

The GreenSoul Project Fact Sheet is a self-explanatory 3-page fact sheet that provides a brief summary of the GreenSoul project including the project’s social media links.  This document is intended as a flyer handout and a briefing document to be distributed either digitally or in print.

The GreenSoul Public Presentation is a 19-page summary of the aims of the GreenSoul project. The document presents the project’s objectives, partners and pilot buildings and is intended as material to be presented at conferences, seminars and other dissemination events either in public or directly to the tenants, managers and other stakeholders of the 6 buildings involved in the project.  Please contact Ceres Tech-Spaces or the project coordinator for any further questions regarding this material.
