EatX Stockholm 

photo 3

Imagine no wasted food, by efficiently sharing the non-used raw materials after your meal preparation.

Hacking Food Waste in private Homes or in community living spaces for students, would save water, phosphor, CO2, money as well as pollution from transport trucks.

Eat Exchange is a mobile application, which allows local community to share food that would have been wasted. The application enables individuals to advertise the food that they wouldn’t be able to consume. Then the supply of spare food would be collected by the members of the community who would otherwise need to buy it. The application contributes to the reduction of waste generated by consumers, methane discharge, as well as to the decrease of CO2 emissions and water consumption.

Company Carbon Death Map

Winner: Transparency Prize

The judges say:

Company Carbon Deathmap hits two audiences: it’s provocative and could be used to apply pressure to industries, equally it helps bring visibility of risk to mainstream investors.

Description

The FTSE 100 group of companies are valued by the market based on expectations about their future earning potential. But the huge assets of fossil fuels owned and used by the companies pose a systemic risk their earning potential. Given that future emissions of carbon dioxide are highly constrained if we are to avoid climate change, companies sitting on large stocks of carbon are likely to see the value of these commodities reduce as they become increasingly difficult to use…

…so how does the current valuation of companies change if we take this into account?

Energy Efficiency in Buildings

Winner: Built Environment Prize

The judges say:

We liked the addition of user-generated content in to data in this project, adding personal comfort data could extend to applications like FourSquare, and make environmental information less boring.

Description

Building energy efficiency statistics, with user satisfaction and mapping for visualisation.

AMEE in excel

Winner: Behaviour Change Prize

The judges say:

We believe over 80% of the sustainability field currently use spreadsheets. As a process, this is broken, not scalable and inaccurate. AMEE in Excel Integrates spreadsheets with web-services, to create a behaviour change that could address this issue and bring more credibility to the market.

Kindle Energy Dashboard

Winner: Innovation Prize

The judges say:

We had only one word to describe this innovation: Awesome.

MQTT Kindlet

Description

Making use of an energy-efficient, lightweight, portable, and highly “”glanceable”” device – the e-Ink Amazon Kindle – to connect to energy data delivered over the lightweight MQTT protocol.

The app requires the Kindle to be “jailbroken”, and uses data publically available from bmreports and the realtime carbon site powered by AMEE, via test.mosquitto.org

The idea is to generate dashboard images to use as screensavers on the Kindle when it is “sleeping”.

Mastodon

Winner: Best Hack and Peoplefund.it Prize

The judges say:

Mastodon looks to the future of distributed computing, and is a great example of web-meets-cleantech.

Links

http://www.mastodonc.com/

Description

Don’t let your cloud computing become hairy, lumbering, and extinct. Use Mastodon C to select the most efficient and sustainable location for your job. Continually calculated and updated, to give you the confidence that your data crunching won’t destroy the planet.

The financial cost and carbon cost depends on:

  • Live costs from cloud providers right now
  • Current energy mix at each location
  • Current temperature at each location (low temperature means less cooling needed, so less energy used per operation)

One Tonne

Winner: Visualisation Prize

The judges say:

One Tonne was a clear and simple idea that was the most likely to be used and forwarded on to friends. We also liked that “yurt” was listed as a dwelling.

Description

We took one tonne as a memorable round number for the personal carbon footprints we may need to aim for. The question then is.. how much fun can we have for a tonne?!

The benefit of thinking about it this way round, as opposed to many current carbon awareness initiatives which focus more on ‘where we are now’, is that we start to get a feeling for where we need to get to.

Includes search via Ask AMEE.

Carbon Emissions in Minecraft

A mod for Minecraft that adds carbon emissions using AMEEconnect to get real scientific data from the IPCC. When you burn some wood in a furnace, the mod calls out to AMEEconnect to do a calculation, and adds the result to a tracker in-game. As the carbon ticks up, the environment gets more and more polluted as the skies go dark and the clouds come down.
