Marin Clean Energy: public, not-for-profit electricity provider that gives customers the choice of having 50% to 100% of their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and hydro at competitive rates.
Hi Shuting, I think this is an awesome idea. One of the research contributions just popped into my head that I thought would be relevant to you... (https://openideo.com/challenge/renewable-energy/research/tidy-street-changing-neighbors-behaviors-through-voluntary-monitoring-and-public-infographics) In thinking about visualizing energy usage, it could be cool to develop visual infographics that are displayed in the community (physically) as a reminder and motivator! These could work in conjunction with the data available on your app...
Hi Mike, I completely agree with your perspective here...and believe that more and more businesses will be going towards renewable energy solutions to cut energy costs and increase their brand loyalty. Another great example of efforts to make supply chains more resource efficient are Wal Mart and Interface Global!
Great idea Anand. I love that it takes existing space and infrastructure and gives it a second use. I also think targeting affluent communities that are in the process of being built would be a great place to start. Maybe you could incorporate results of existing trials into this idea. Have you been able to do any research into the cost of implementing this technology?
