Frequently Asked Question's (FAQ’s)

What is the Living Lab project?

Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is running a study at Carseldine Village looking into how the home, everyday appliances, and renewable energy technologies impact household energy bills.

 

How will the findings of my energy use be used?

The QUT researchers will have access to the survey data, electricity data provided, and specific dwelling data. This is required for QUT to do analysis of the links between the building, appliances, and occupants, for example.

However, in all reporting, please note the data/information will be de-identified (meaning QUT will not report on the specific energy use and details of a specific household in a specific street address).

 

How do I get paid?

You will receive a $50 gift card for your participation in online surveys (approximately 10 mins each, two surveys her household)

 

How long does the project run for?

Up to 24 months.

Householders are free to discontinue their participation at any time, however any information collected prior to withdrawal will be retained for research purposes.

 

Can anyone that lives at Carseldine Village opt in?

No, only households within Stage 1 of Carseldine Village.

Can I opt out of the project if I no longer wish to be involved?

Yes, householders are free to discontinue their participation at any time, however any information collected prior to withdrawal will be retained for research purposes.

 

If I have any questions about this project, who do I contact?

The main contact will be Dr Kate Letheren from QUT who is responsible for the household surveys (which will be online), and her details will be shared at the commencement of this project.
