In the last decade, Further and Higher education institutes in the UK are face with demands to reduce the energy and carbon emissions as a result of the climate changes and rising energy prices. iSpace proposes an innovative approach to closing the feedback loop between users and their carbon footprint. This approach is realised through greater user engagement facilitated by more accessible and transparent remote monitoring and control of carbon usage using the Shaspa Service framework. The Shaspa Service Framework enables individual users within FE/HE institutions to compare their energy consumption with others and to monitor the performance of individual buildings via the build in social energy meter.
