Digital consumer services in the battle against the climate change

The efficient use of energy and other commodities in buildings helps to battle against climate change. The circular economy, new types of batteries, solar cells, electric cars, construction methods require more monitoring and guidance at home environment. Meantime a smarter energy market and small communities are developing where events should be targeted to smaller units, such as consumers and homes. In addition, other services, such as security and telecommunications, are associated with the home.

How to create a simple and easy service for the consumer in a complex home environment?

In this workshop you will brainstorm and conceptualize the future intelligent service platform or home services, and help create a better future!
