West House: The Challenges of Bringing Sustainable Home Research into Practice

Lyn Bartram is an assistant professor at the School of Interactive Arts + Technology at Simon Fraser University and the director of the Human-Centred Systems for Sustainability research group with Professor Rob Woodbury. She works closely with the City of Vancouver, BC Hydro, Terasen Gas, and a number of green tech companies and researchers in exploring how better residential information systems can help people use fewer resources more efficiently. In the past two years she has led the design and deployment of two sustainable home systems, and remains cautiously optimistic that many of the challenges in getting these initiatives into the field will eventually be resolved.
