Faced with serious climate challenges, innovative solutions to energy consumption are more important than ever. Even so, the energy industry lacks substantial and innovative solutions that engage end-consumers: you, me, all of us.

At this Meetup, we gather researchers and innovators to discuss questions such as: How can smart grids, smart meters, and smart homes positively impact our daily lives and societies? How green is your electricity? Can Machine Learning and AI help the energy industry step into the 21st century? We are hoping to meet lots of climate-conscious people interested in new technologies for an engaging discussion.
