    Building Momentum: Scaling up Change in Community Organizations2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Addressing calls in Sustainable HCI to scale up our work in HCI targeting sustainability, and the current knowledge gap of how to do this practically, we here present a qualitative study of 10 sustainability-oriented community organizations that are working to scale up their change making. They are all loosely connected to a local Transition network, meaning that they are aiming at transforming current practices in society, through local and practical action, to meet challenges related to climate change. We wanted to know how they try to scale up their change making, and what role ICT plays in enabling scaling up. The study contributes new insights about three stages of scaling up, in which ICT plays different roles. We conclude with implications for HCI for how to support community organizations in scaling up, while keeping values important for working toward a more resilient society.

    How do you Play with a Robotic Toy Animal? A long-term study of Pleo2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pleo is one of the more advanced interactive toys currently available for the home market, taking the form of a robotic dinosaur. We present an exploratory study of how it was interacted with and reflected upon in the homes of six families during 2 to 10 months. Our analysis emphasizes a discrepancy between the participants’ initial desires to borrow a Pleo and what they reported later on about their actual experiences. Further, the data suggests an apparent tension between participants expecting the robot to work as a ‘toy’ while making consistent comparisons with real pet animals. We end by discussing a series of implications for design of this category of toys, in order to better maintain interest and engagement over time.

    Designing for Playful Photography2009In: New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia, ISSN 1361-4568, E-ISSN 1740-7842, Vol. 15, p. 193-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper highlights the concept of playful photography as an emerging and important area for Human Computer Interaction (HCI) research, through bringing together three research projects investigating new ways of engaging with digital photography with theories related to playfulness and experience-centred design. Drawing upon this, we start to unpack playful photography and its characteristics. Instead of aiming for a unifying theory of photography related to experience-centred research, we take a reflective stance on our own research work. This is intended to encourage a critical discussion about playful photography, as well as support the on-going research in this area with a possible theoretical perspective.

    Exploring Renewable Energy Futures through Household Energy Resilience2022In: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - Proceedings, Association for Computing Machinery , 2022, article id 333Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A transition to renewable energy increases the risks of disruptions when electricity supply does not meet demand. HCI has explored how digital technologies can mitigate such problems in households through support for reducing or shifting electricity use. However, faster transitions may be possible if some disturbances can be acceptable and households are supported in adapting to them. In this paper, we present a study of 21 Swedish households and their experiences of and ideas on how to manage disruptions in electricity supply. We call this perspective household energy resilience and identify three strategies for resilience: (1) response diversity, i.e., diversity in ways of carrying out normally electricity-dependent practices, (2) creating opportunities to develop resilience, and (3) building community energy resilience. Furthermore, we suggest how HCI can support these strategies, both by providing tools to increase resilience and by carefully designing technology and services to be more resilient in themselves. © 2022 Owner/Author.

    Household energy resilience: Shifting perspectives to reveal opportunities for renewable energy futures in affluent contexts2022In: Energy Research & Social Science, ISSN 2214-6296, E-ISSN 2214-6326, Vol. 88, article id 102498Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Energy resilience is an important focus for energy policy and research, since the energy system is increasingly facing challenges such as power shortages, e.g. due to increased renewable energy production, and risks of power outages caused by extreme weathers. Typically, energy resilience in these contexts focuses on infrastructure and securing supply of electricity despite disturbances. This paper contributes a complementary perspective on resilience, which takes households as a starting point for investigating resilience. Building on understandings of resilience from several disciplines, we suggest a definition of household energy resilience that can be used to explore how households can ensure a good life in a future with variable availability of electricity. Furthermore, we draw on current ideas of future domestic energy use in energy affluent contexts (backup energy sources, energy efficiency, flexibility, and energy sufficiency) to create a framework for exploring household energy resilience. We find a potential for diversity within and between the different ideas, that is not always present in mainstream visions of future energy use. With the perspective of household energy resilience, we wish to challenge the perception of electricity demand as non-negotiable and to reveal opportunities for supporting households in becoming more resilient in an uncertain future. © 2022 The Authors

    “None of us was prepared”—Caring for vulnerable people during the heatwave in Sweden in 20182023In: Journal of Emergency Management, ISSN 1543-5865, Vol. 20, no 4, p. 287-300Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Climate change is increasing the risk for extreme weather events such as heatwaves, including in northern countries like Sweden, which until recent years has had limited experiences of coping with extreme heat. Based on predictions that Sweden will be more frequently exposed to heatwaves in the future, it is imperative to increase the societal resilience and adaptation measures. This paper presents a qualitative interview study involving 19 participants and their experiences of caring for vulnerable people during the heatwave in 2018. The participants represent four different organizations (working directly or indirectly with vulnerable people) in two municipalities in Sweden, including preschools, homes for the elderly, homecare services, and care homes for people with functional impairments, which were all impacted during the heatwave. This study contributes new empirical insights about the heatwave in 2018 and, in particular, similarities and differences in both experiences and adaptation measures across the four organizations. The findings show how both staff and vulnerable people suffered from the consequences of heat which increased vulnerability, how some organizations lacked enough (qualified) staff to secure routines, and that few evaluations and formal changes were done after the heatwave.

    SOL:AR: Beställarstöd för Solenergiinvesteringar genom avancerad visualisering2019Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The solar energy business has developed rapidly in Sweden in recent years, but so farmost companies and individuals have chosen to install solar cells on roofs. Anotherrelatively unexplored resource that we argue offer potential and where we see anemerging trend for various solar solutions, is building facades. In contexts where lackof space prevents building new or standalone solar energy installments, facades canstill be used for a range of purposes, e.g., generating renewable solar power and/orprovide space for shading devices and thereby reduced demand for cooling. In theSOL:AR project we have investigated how a future digital visualization tool could makeit easier for clients who are considering solar solutions, including categories ofproducts like solar cells, building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and solar shading.How could a digital tool give a quick insight into e.g., the profitability of solar cells or asolar shading solution on a certain façade, and how would these look aesthetically? Along term aim in the project is to stimulate the development of facades as a resourcethat opens for new opportunities for solar solutions.Through interviewing potential target groups like property owners and other keyactors about their needs and requests regarding a digital tool, mapping out technicalpossibilities as well as legal and organizational aspects, we have investigated theprerequisites for such a tool. We have identified property owners as our primary targetgroup, and in particular medium-sized property owners with commercial buildings,although there seems to be an increasing interest in solar solutions also in tenantowners’ associations and apartment buildings. In total, at least 30 people fromproperty companies, trade organizations, solar energy companies, governmentalagencies, and urban planning offices have participated in our interviews andworkshops respectively and contributed their thoughts and needs about how a digitalvisualization tool could create value in the procurement of solar solutions for facades.The results from the study suggest that a digital visualization tool could create valuefor property owners if it triggers the interest for solar solutions early in a renovation-/rebuilding process; is easy to use for people regardless of role at the propertycompany or tenant owners’ association; can provide an idea of how a certain solarsolution would look along with an estimation of economic and environmental benefits(rather than exact calculations); can support the communication about solar solutionsbetween property owners and tenants; can be used “in the field” at a certain buildingas well as in the office; is owned by a neutral actor and is free of charge for propertyowners to use.Together with insights from the technical state-of-the art mapping and legal issues, wehave gathered these user-oriented insights in a list of requirements for a future tool. Toconclude the project, we conducted a workshop with invited actors from thevisualization and solar shading industry to secure the relevance of the technicalrequirement list and identify further important questions for a future developmentphase. Future challenges include identifying a neutral owner for the tool, identify areasonable payment model, as well as implementing the tool step-wise while waitingfor necessary technical advances in the area of augmented reality and 3D datarespectively.

    ”Do they pass the woman test?”: Navigating and negotiating the gendering of residential solar panels2022In: NordiCHI '22: Nordic Human-Computer Interaction Conference, Aarhus, Denmark, October 8 - 12, 2022, New York, USA: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2022, p. 1-12, article id 47Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Residential solar panels are increasingly popular, yet women arelargely invisible as customers and users. This creates barriers forreaching gender equality and climate goals where increased renewable energy is key. We present results from a norm-criticalstudy drawing on 10 interviews with solar industry representativesand focus groups with 28 women, either owning solar panels or inthe process of buying. The study aims to critically analyze currentgender norms related to technology, market, and use, as well asto identify difficulties for women’s solar panel engagement. Thestudy shows how women at different touchpoints in the processof buying and having solar panels both navigate and negotiate anongoing gendering of this technology, despite the industry attemptsto present solar panels as gender neutral. While the study focuseson residential solar panels, the contribution is relevant for widerHCI, e.g. work related to smart home technologies.

    Gifts from friends and strangers: a study of mobile music sharing2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mobile technology has turned the traditionally collective activity of enjoying music into an often private one. New technologies such as wireless ad hoc networks have the potential to re-connect listeners who are now separated by headphones. We report on a field study of Push!Music, a novel mobile music sharing system . Push!Music allows both manual and automatic sharing of music between users through ad hoc wireless networking, and also provides a social awareness of other users nearby. The system was used by 13 subjects for three weeks. In post-study interviews, we identified four categories of results: social awareness, sharing music with friends, sharing music with strangers, and sharing automatically. Based on this, we present implications for design that can be applied not only to mobile music sharing systems, but to mobile media sharing in general: Allow division into active and passive use; enhance the awareness of who, where and when; support reciprocity; and finally, support identity and impression management.

    Facilitating Mobile Music Sharing and Social Interaction with Push!Music2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Push!Music is a novel mobile music listening and sharing system, where users automatically receive songs that have autonomously recommended themselves from nearby players depending on similar listening behaviour and music history. Push!Music also enables users to wirelessly send songs between each other as personal recommendations. We conducted a two-week preliminary user study of Push!Music, where a group of five friends used the application in their everyday life. We learned for example that the shared music in Push!Music became a start for social interaction and that received songs in general were highly appreciated and could be looked upon as ‘treats’.

    Light my fire but don't choke on the smoke: Wellbeing and pollution from fireplace use in Sweden2020In: Energy Research & Social Science, ISSN 2214-6296, E-ISSN 2214-6326, Vol. 69, article id 101696Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fireplaces are popular in Northern Europe. However, particle emissions from fireplaces have been identified as an environmental problem and a health problem. User behaviors affect particle emissions and the success of particle reducing technologies to a large extent. This interdisciplinary study aims to investigate why and how people use their fireplaces, including what emotions people associate with fire, and their interest in learning more about fire making and changing behavior related to fire making. It does so by applying an emotion regulation model in a novel way. In total, 146 Swedish individuals owning a fireplace (the majority had wood stoves, a few had tiled stoves, boilers or other types of fireplaces) participated in an online questionnaire about motives, behaviors, knowledge, and interest in learning and changing behavior. The most common motives for using a fireplace in this sample were complementary heating and “cozy fire making”. Our results suggest that watching a fire can aid in regulating emotions from unpleasant stress towards joy and provide a pleasant atmosphere for socialization, and that wood fuel may be a preferred complementary energy choice because it provides beautiful light, comfortable warmth, beautiful design and safety. People reporting emotional motives for using a fireplace also reported an interest in changing behavior.

    This changes sustainable HCI2018In: Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - Proceedings, 2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    More than a decade into Sustainable HCI (SHCI) research, the community is still struggling to converge on a shared understanding of sustainability and HCI's role in addressing it. We think this is largely a positive sign, reflective of maturity; yet, lacking a clear set of aims and metrics for sustainability continues to be the community's impediment to progressing, hence we seek to articulate a vision around which the community can productively coalesce. Drawing from recent SHCI publications, we identify commonalities that might form the basis of a shared understanding, and we show that this understanding closely aligns with the authoritative conception of a path to a sustainable future proffered by Naomi Klein in her book This Changes Everything. We elaborate a set of contributions that SHCI is already making that can be unified under Klein's narrative, and compare these categories of work to those found in past surveys of the field as evidence of substantive progress in SHCI.

    Ubicomp challenges in collaborative scheduling: Pin&Play at the Göteborg film festival.2007In: Journal of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, Special Issue on Ubiquitous Computing in the Real World, Vol. 11, p. 563-575Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ubicomp technology faces many technical challenges, which makes it difficult to test in real world situations. However, understanding and building for everyday practices is crucial for ubicomp designers, in order to push the technological development in the directions needed. We have developed and tested a ubiquitous computing prototype supporting collaborative scheduling. It is based on Pin&Play, a surface-based networking technology with interactive pushpins. The team of a local film festival was engaged in the development process, which resulted in a partial implementation illustrating how their current work practice could be supported. Drawing on this particular design case, we report findings and discuss challenges for ubicomp technology in general.

    Unpacking the complexity of community microgrids: A review of institutions’ roles for development of microgrids2020In: Renewable & sustainable energy reviews, ISSN 1364-0321, E-ISSN 1879-0690, Vol. 121, article id 109690Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Community microgrids implemented in existing electricity grids can meet both development targets set out in the Paris agreement: 1. mitigate greenhouse gas emissions through increased implementation of renewable energy sources, and 2. to adapt to climate related disturbances and risk of catastrophes. Community microgrids are, however, complex to implement and institutional change is needed to reach their full potential. The purpose of this article is to review existing literature and analyze institutional developments influencing the growth of community microgrids. The literature describes a concentration of microgrid activities in specific regions: USA, EU, Asia and Australia. Varying reasons for implementing community microgrids were found in the different regions but similar institutional developments occurred, albeit with differing emphasis due to contextual specificities. Formal directions do however influence informal institutions even though their aims differ. Power utilities stand out as a critical actor and both formal and informal institutions put pressure on utilities to update their traditional business models. This article illustrates how informal and formal institutions play a significant role in the growth of community microgrids in existing electricity grids and provide interesting examples which can be utilized by policymakers. Microgrid development is still in a formative phase and further institutional change in the form of updated regulations is needed. © 2020 The Authors

    Strategies to mitigate the effects of future extreme heat waves - A new method for mapping2020In: IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, IOP Publishing Ltd , 2020, Vol. 588, no 3, p. 1.06-1.10Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Global warming is increasingly causing extreme weather events, such as heat waves. One-way heat waves are problematic in society, particularly in urban areas, is because of their negative impact on vulnerable groups including elderly people and children. Organizations such as municipalities that are responsible for local schools, day care centres and/or elderly homes, may struggle to provide the necessary care and function during extreme heat waves. This work explores how remote sensing images providing historical data of land surface temperatures (LST) can be used to create summer urban heat island maps and heat wave intensity, and in the longer run, how such information could be used by municipalities and other actors to mitigate effects of future heat waves. The method presented in this study was used to detect the “hot spots” in two participating Swedish municipalities and identify the municipal services located within these spots based on MODIS (1 km) and Landsat (30 m) LST datasets. Furthermore, this study showed that urban heat island phenomenon existed in the two participating municipalities. In general, this methodology can be applicable at both local and regional scale, although it might require additional site-specific data. © Content from this work may be used under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 licence.
