Offering customers a well-founded choice for renewable energy
The Garage: where next generation businesses are made. Deloitte will open its Garage doors in April 2019, housed in the iconic Citroën garage next to the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. The Garage will be our space and place where we will co-create the future business of our clients.
Our Future of Energy challenge focuses on developing advanced technologies for energy providers to be able to meet customer demands for more renewable energy in their homes.
Our challenge is open to all EU-based developers, data scientists (analysts), marketers, energy experts and UX/UI designers who have the best and brightest idea on how to use digital platforms, smart applications or connected objects to help customers make an informed decision of which renewable energy options are best for their home.
Winners will be invited to pitch their prototype during the Garage Opening Festival, to our Deloitte experts and leading industry captains.
As energy suppliers around the world can confirm, customers want greater involvement and more innovation in their energy generation.
Using renewable energy to power your home can offer a wide variety of benefits, such as great tax incentives and reducing (or completely eliminating) household utility bills.
But planning for a home’s renewable energy system is a process that involves a wide variety of factors, ranging from a household’s electricity use and available financial incentives to local energy infrastructure.
If providers had easy access to all of these variables, tailored to each specific household, this would help them to meet their customers’ needs and remove any insecurities they may have about switching to renewable energy.
Through the development and adoption of digital platforms, smart applications or connected objects, energy providers can provide customers with the relevant data to make an informed decision on the best (renewable) energy options for their home.
Through the use of digital technologies, how might we generate a quick, comprehensive overview of the unique (and optimal) renewable energy options to power a specific household?
This would be accomplished by taking into account a household’s energy consumption rate, type/build of the home, geographic location, (service) infrastructure, government incentives, and more.
A user-friendly platform or mobile application that can analyze and generate renewable energy options that are unique to a specific household.
Solutions should be based on real-time data linked to its energy consumption, geographic location, and available energy (service) resources.
