How do you become a “prosumer” of electricity after so many decades of being the plain old consumer? The answer would be Crowd Energy, a collective effort and an amazing, innovative concept where “decentralization” of renewable electricity will lead to a substantial change in society, economy and politics.
You can continue enjoying your quality of life and yet ensure the same quality of life for your family and generations to come, through sustainable development and a green future.
The 1st Poster Exhibition on Crowd Energy took place at the iimt – University of Fribourg on the 21th of May. Lots of excellent presentations and interesting discussions.
