Abstract: The present study tests and compares the efficacy of two different social game modes, collaborative and competitive, as interventions to motivate electricity-saving behaviour at the household level by means of a gamified mobile App, called Social Power. The collaborative game has a common savings goal that the team aims to reach collectively. The competitive game compares weekly savings and thus sets two cities against each other to save the most. The App integrates electricity saving challenges, tips, quizzes in order to motivate participants to earn points and reach set consumption reduction goals.
