  • 1. Concept Presentation
    Smart Grid Citizen™ Concept Presentation
    December 2009
    Privileged & Confidential
    ©2009, Smart Grid Citizen™
  • 2. What is Smart Grid Citizen™?
    Smart Grid Citizen™ is a social network and media site that makes it fun and easy to:
    Take greater control of your energy usage
    Save money on your energy costs
    Take steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle
  • 3. Our community Suggestion Board for energy conservation and sustainable living marries traditional search, sort, and filtering for typical keywords and category attributes with social votes and ROI data.
    This new level of structured content gives the user unprecedented power to identify highly relevant and personally rewarding ideas that they can manage and act upon.
    Our public Eco-profiling system engages and rewards users for their social interaction and green living achievements.
    As users become “smarter”, they become more recognized among their fellow Citizens and gain new privileges.
    How?
  • 4. An untapped kinship exists in a fragmented and growing community of residents living in homes with smart meters and energy dashboards…
    Beyond smart meters, consumers must wade through a large and growing number of ideas, products, and services to help them lead more energy conservative and sustainable lifestyles.
    Utilities and energy providers need help in developing more meaningful relationships with their customers and educating them to think and act differently about their energy consumption.
    While the true vision of the Smart Grid may take 20 -30 years to fully realize, the evolution has already begun:
    Demonstrations, pilots, some large-scale deployments, consumer skepticism, a wide variety of tools, technologies, and standards,
    Broader deployments, availability of common standards and interoperability, wider user acceptance
    Smart energy technologies are more commonplace
    Why?
  • 5. Make it fun and easy for consumers to identify the most relevant and rewarding ideas in energy conservation and sustainable living.
    Deliver an engaging ‘social’ component that makes energy conservation rewarding both online and offline.
    Create a community that promotes:
    Sharing, learning, and community participation
    Discovery of the “smartest” energy conservation and sustainable living tips and suggestions
    Discussion and debate
    Healthy competition
    Create a consumer-centric energy conservation brand
    Help develop best practices and educational content that resonates with consumers
    Address challenges with the deployment and use of specific smart grid tools, technologies, and programs
    Help improve the dialogue and relationships between utilities and consumers
