AbstractThis paper presents our efforts in understanding the long-term effects of eco-feedback devices. Our work argues that lack of long term in the wild studies is a missed opportunity to understand how these devices are used after the novelty wears off. We build on previous work that showed a significant decrease in user awareness after a short period with a relapse in consumption, with the presented studies we aimed to investigate if new forms of feedback could overcome this issue, maintaining the users awareness for longer periods of time.
