This paper describes the CHARM Energy Study in which mobile technology is used to study the impact of social group feedback on household energy consumption. We describe the background and rationale behind the study, the technology which supports the study, and the study's methodology. The work described herein builds upon similar studies by using mobile technology and on-line feedback to increase the frequency of accurate social group feedback to the participants.
