The Ecofamilies project was an integral reference in the research phase of a previous OpenIDEO concept idea called Singapore Smart Grid Games

The idea proposed that Smart Grid data would be collected from individual flats, blocks, entire housing developments and towns. This data is then vibrantly presented to local residents through playful interactive digital advertisements at public transport stations, where people feel most connected with their locality. Residents will be able to see how their block or street compares with others locally, and be presented with tips on how to lower their energy costs and recycle their waste more effectively.
