Probably the most worrying threat to our planet at the present time, global warming has become the main cause for our climate changes, and its repercussions are finally starting to impact the political and business climate as well.
Although the path to bring down the fossil fuel emissions, and put an end to deforestations relies on actions from all of us, the truth is that global warming won’t end just by recycling and buying local produce.
This fact is clearly evident in the Capstone World 2.0 app, once we factor in all the variables of our city’s into the energy calculator, it becomes obvious who are the big polluters and how important it is to convince big corporations and governments to adopt cleaner and more efficient ways to produce energy.
Being the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of micro turbine energy systems, Capstone’s has a key role on how to improve the efficiency of the nation’s energy infrastructure, and reduce emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases. Understanding Capstone’s mission and vision was a key factor in the design development of the Capstone World 2.0 app.
This app is the first of Its kind to be able to determine the potential savings in energy costs and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions if certain city buildings switch from utility power to low emission micro turbines, solar, and wind turbines.
This app merges the informative distributed energy calculator, that allows the users to understand how much energy and money can be saved by switching to clean energy, and the Capstone World 2.0. This last feature allows the users to explore the diverse landscape where Capstone micro turbines are in use, and learn how Capstone micro turbines help save money, energy, and the environment. Each industry area includes written and video case studies.
My role on this project was to design and develop the UI/UX for both components of the app as well as create 3d elements and Illustrations. The Capstone World 2.0 app is currently is available at Capstone World 2.0, or it can also be downloaded at the Apple Store.
