Hacking the Future of Sustainable Energy

Challenge

These are difficult times for the energy industry. With disruptive digitalisation, climate change looming, and the transition to sustainable energy sources becoming more and more urgent; new ways of working are needed - fast.

Sweden’s largest energy provider, Vattenfall, is committed to resolving modern energy issues. Part of their commitment is to make innovation more open, transparent and inclusive. 

Approach

Together with DDB Stockholm, Another Tomorrow brought diverse new perspectives into an innovation process order to explore the future possibilities of power and energy.

The format was a two day hackathon called The Future of Energy — within which people with diverse skills and perspectives were collectively explored and climate-smart solutions were collaboratively prototyped.

Building upon our process Sling, Another Tomorrow guided participants through stages of ideation, prototyping and testing. 

Outcome

Teams visualized their ideas in short, self-explanatory videos. These video prototype were to be tested on the public in order to validate the results & take the best ideas to the next level.
