The generation and consumption of energy is one of the most pressing and controversial challenges our civilisation will face. However, rather than being depressed by the prospects of climate change and energy shortage we like to see the opportunities that arise from considering a fundamental shift towards sustainable living. Our research explores new ways design can contribute to the discussion, by sparking debate as well as providing working solutions.
The project is based at the FHP Interaction Design Lab and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. We work together with industry partners as well as with research organisations in the field. This website documents our investigations and activities.
