WattzOn is a new, free digital application that allows anyone to more broadly understand their real energy footprint. The rich online audit calculates personal energy consumption from flying, driving, powering a home, eating, shopping, working and even one's share of the energy necessary to make our society function. WattzOn helps users understand their personal impact on the environment and how they rate compared to others WattzOn users, as well as global averages.

These slides were delivered at the 2008 Web 2.0 Summit. Check out WattzOn at http://www.wattzon.com. Follow our blog, What's On? at http://blog.wattzon.com, or at twitter as @wattzon.

### WattzOn presentation @ Web 2.0 Summit

1. you hear about... climate change
2. you hear about... energy independence
3. you hear about... carbon footprint
5. what you want to know is... how do i fit in?
6. what you need are... tools for making the right consumer choices
7. wattzon.com Because solving climate and energy challenges requires everyone's help.
8. wattzon.com Measure what is measureable, make measure- able what is not. - Galileo
9. wattzon.com A social network around the notion of energy use and conservation. A wiki methodology for assembling a profoundly complex dataset. Share. Compare. Learn. Change.
10. What is my relationship to climate and energy?
11. HOW MUCH POWER DO I USE?
12. Energy & power basics Energy is measured in Joules (J) Energy is a measurable amount. A quantity. Lifting an apple from the ground to the table. ~ 1 Joule
13. Energy & power basics Power is measured in Watts (W). 1 Watt = 1 Joule / second. 40 apples per second from the Power is the rate of using ground to the table = 40 Watts. energy.
14. Energy & power basics Running this Apple laptop takes 40 Watts.
15. Using units of power allows you to compare things that happen on markedly different time scales. yearly + monthly + daily + ... Power, in Watts, is like an average. The average amount of energy, in Joules, you use each second. If you do something yearly (like ﬂy 105,000 miles), it contributes: 168,207 kilometers 1 year 1.40 megajoules Joules 1 year � 31,536,000 seconds � 1 kilometer � 7,462 second = 7,462 Watts If you do something monthly (like your electricity bill), it contributes: 122 kilowatt ·hours 1 month 3.6 megajoules Joules 1 month � 2,952,000 seconds � 1 kilowatt · hour � 170 second = 170 Watts If you do something daily (like drink 1 Energy drink), it contributes: 1 energy drink 1 day 7.84 megajoules Joules 1 day � 86,400 seconds � 1 bottle � 90 second = 90 Watts
16. quot;Watts per alwaysquot; 100W Think of your life in light bulbs.... A 12,000 Watt lifestyle is 120 x 100 watt light bulbs burning permanently.
