How much energy do residential households use on average? How do you determine whether you are using too much each day, or if you are living as efficiently as you can? Is it possible to see which areas are more sustainably aware and are running their households more efficiently?

Everyday, people in our city go about their lives, consuming energy and resources along the way. Some people are more concerned with their impact than others. They try to recycle what they can, use as little water and electricity as possible and carpool or use public transport to get to work. But what about everyone else? Many people do not realise how much difference a small change in their daily lives can have a much larger scale impact.

If everyone reduced their total energy consumption by as little as 10%, we would go a long way towards a more sustainable future. The Integrated Sustainability Awareness System (S.A.S.) seeks to provide a creative solution to answering these questions and encouraging people to be more active about sustainability by making a small change to help transform our future.
