SP0040: EnGage (Off-Campus Residence Energy Metering)

Status: COMPLETED August 2011 - December 2011

EnGage is a community-based social marketing pilot project in Upper Residence (McConnell, Molson, and Gardner Halls) aimed at decreasing electricity-wasting habits.

Through the collaborative work of first-year students, upper-year students, and residence directors, we are looking forward to seeing the effect of collective action for improved energy practices in residential buildings on McGill University campus. Installation of screens that stream live from MyPulse Energy Dashboard prompting students to be aware of their personal energy consumption will be paired with active commitments from students and relevant reminders, engaging students in their individual and collective impact on energy consumption.
