Promoting energy savings in the home.

We were approached by Wynand Goosen to develop an online application to promote energy savings in the home.
What we did

The Ekoguru web app is aimed at the American market, allowing users to add energy usage and monitor where to save energy.

We designed and developed the app with the aim of generating goals for the user, with the incentive to save energy via their “GuruBucks” program.

The app makes use of illustrative characters and gamification to encourage user engagement, along with a strong community element, with users able to challenge their friends to save energy, and build their energy usage profile.

Users can manage family members, and build up a usage profile for each member, manage all household appliances, and monitor their energy usage, and monitor utility bills via monthly usage graphs and totals.



EkoGuru was nominated for a number of green energy awards, including:

Greening the Future 2015 – Special commendation
Global Cleantech Innovation Programme – Semi Finalist
Eco-Logic Awards 2015/16 – Finalist, Eco-Innovation Award
