Hello Energy: Sustainability that you can actually see
That's the question that has led to the creation of Hello Energy. Hello Energy is a platform that monitors and visualises energy consumption developed by Kees van Alphen and Benno Schwarz in 2016. Put simply, Hello Energy packages various data related to the building’s energy consumption and generation in easy-to-understand infographics that can be shown across all sorts of screens, from hallway TVs to phones and laptops. “They say that there seems to be a lot of knowledge about energy and sustainability,” Van Alphen said. Setting a connection between a building and the visualisation tool is an important challenge for Hello Energy.
