This set of Home Life Insight Cards is based on insights from the LEEDR (Low Effort Energy Demand Reduction) project and has been further developed within the Hothouse project. Both are joint ventures between designers, engineers, and social scientists at Loughborough University, UK.

The initial cards are organised around 5 key themes: CORE, PATTERNS OF LIFE, DIGITAL FAMILY, ENERGY HOTSPOTS and GUIDING PRINCIPLES. As our research develops, we will add additional themes. The HOT WATER theme is the first of these.

We are happy for you to use, share and adapt these cards in any way that you see fit, as long as appropriate credit is given and that you provide us with some feedback on how you have used them!

This file is provided ready for print (please order full-colour, double-sided A5). We recommend Silk 350gsm laminated card with rounded corners. If you would like to request a physical pack of the cards, please get in contact.
