Refresh was approached by Wynand Goosen to develop an online application to promote energy savings in the home.
Aimed at the American market the website allows you to add your energy usage and monitor where you can save energy via a strong gamification element.
What we did
Refresh designed and developed the website, with the aim of generating goals for the user, and incentives to saving energy via their “GuruBucks” program. The website also has a strong community element, with users able to challenge their friends to save energy, and build their energy usage profile.
Manage Appliances – With EkoGuru you can manage all the appliances in your household, and monitor their energy usage.
