LEEDR project home energy dataset

<div>The LEEDR project (http://leedr-project.co.uk) was funded through the EPSRC (EP/I000267/1) between 2010 to 2014 to understand domestic energy consumption in the context of everyday family life.</div><div><br></div><div>The project engaged comprehensive, high resolution engineering based empirical monitoring (presented here) with social science and user centered design methods that employed video data, accessible from http://energyanddigitalliving.com.</div><div><br></div><div>This data set presents the monitoring data from 20 households, maintained by Richard Buswell (r.a.buswell@lboro.ac.uk), Building Energy Research Group (BERG), School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, Loughborough University.</div><div><br></div><div>Please read the README.TXT file for more information.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Data was collected using building surveys and home monitoring through proprietary sensors and thorough specially developed devices.
