In universities around the world, millions of dollars worth of energy are wasted every year. Dormitory residents on fixed rates have no incentive to be efficient. In campus buildings, lights and air conditioners are left on when nobody is in the room.
With Ample, we create an energy saving community, with a blockchain based energy Cap-and-Trade economy at its heart. Students and faculty earn tokens from each other by saving energy. These tokens, coupled with our other behavioral interventions, create a network of nudges that make reducing consumption as easy as separating your trash.
