  Tasks:    Reduced demand-side energy consumption via human factors engineering  Focused on four demand-side strategies: choice architecture, competition, awareness, and information readiness  Applied academic behavioral theories: anchoring, framing, query theory, status-quo bias, behavioral nudging, prospect theory's reference points, injunctive + descriptive social norms   Results:   Psychologically-informed design recommendations, culminating in a design for a smart meter that surpasses those currently on the market.
