What is the problem you found?
The problem we identified is that people are not sure where their energy comes from and they do not know if their providers are using renewable energy sources or non-renewable energy such as fossil fuels which damage our environment. Therefore they are unable to make informed choices when it comes to their energy provider.
What is your opportunity?
How might we educate more people about where their energy comes from and to make more environmentally friendly choices?
Who is your audience?
Australian householders, particularly the person in the house responsible for making decisions about which energy provider they will use.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is to create an app called LEEF (Lightning Energy Eco-Friendly) that provides information on the most popular energy providers to help you understand where your energy comes from.
In our app you are able to get personalised information about your energy usage and where your energy comes from. All you need to is enter your postcode or address and it will give you a summary of your energy usage.
This helps provide a clear and concise understanding of your energy consumption. The app will tell you your total energy consumption, whether your energy provider uses renewable sources and its sustainability ranking (which can also be found on the website). You can get daily videos informing you about energy usage and short articles to further your understanding.
