Imagine the next generation of building modelling tool experiences


To develop new concept for how a user could interact with our heat demand estimation API.


We have good models of heat demands in buildings, but there are many possible ways we can bring this to users. We want to imagine a user and use case and develop an interface that meets quickly their specific needs.

Big picture:

Heating is the biggest consumer of energy in Swiss homes and is still 60% coming from fossil fuels. This needs to change very quickly to meet climate targets and end fossil fuel dependence. Knowing the heat demand of a building is the first step towards improving efficiency and changing heating systems.
