Recently, use of Renewable Energy (RE) and development of RE technologies are being promoted by many countries. Policies have also been developed to facilitate and encourage consumers to adopt RE. However, the availability of technologies alone does not guarantee their widespread adoption. Numerous reports have identified the barriers are due to lack of knowledge and awareness towards the new technologies. This paper proposes a study and the development of an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) learning tool incorporating the use of smart meters in order to provide knowledge, increase awareness and to influence consumers' behavior and attitude in adopting RE. This proposed research is based on quantitative and qualitative approach and the study will be carried out among residents from a local council in Western Australia. It is expected that results from this study will provide insights and understanding to encourage RE adoption through the use of ICT and smart meters.
