Abstract

Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL), with support from Southern California Edisons(SCE), a major utility in the Los Angeles area, has developed a prototype electronicsinteractive Energy Information Kiosk: a personal computer with touch screen providessinformation linked to video images stored on an optical disc. The kiosk uses text,sgraphics, animation, sound, and video to communicate effectively. This projects goalsswere: to demonstrate SCEs commitment to provide relevant, useful energy services to itsscustomers; to highlight specific incentive programs; to provide users with contacts tospeople and resource materials at SCE; and most importantly, to provide technical guidancesfor building design professionals who want to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.
