This paper discusses the implementation of a smartphone application designed to help develop school pupils' knowledge in relation to a number of energy sustainability questions. This was then used as a method for collecting both quantitative and qualitative data from teachers to help us better understand the school pupils' levels of knowledge, engagement and awareness of energy sustainability. The paper then takes a critical review of the application and shows that it succeeded in spreading the expert knowledge of EDF Energy's staff members, but failed to generate new habitual sustainable behaviours in the school pupils.
