This paper describes a participatory data collection tool designed for use within a multi-disciplinary energy research project. The tool was designed to encourage participants to narrate the story of their past home improvement experiences. The User Centred Designers within the team then used these stories to extract user requirements for use by engineering specialists within the project team
