Our project was inspired by how common it is for people to neglect simple home products, that would vastly improve their home energy use.
What it does
Our projects visualizes the most common households energy and water users, and offers recommendations to remediate them.
How we built it
It is fully built in Python, with Streamlit used to visualize it.
Challenges we ran into
Initially we started with a more complex project, that quickly devolved, as none of us had done front end programming before, so we opted to switch near the end to something more familiar that one of us has experience with.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud the our products works, and is easily shareable.
What we learned
We learned how challenging it can be to code in a team environment.
What's next for Be the change-change the world, energy efficiency calculator
Our project costs almost nothing to host, and can be easily scaled, so it will continue to be hosted, hopefully with a more fleshed out recommendation systems, and more localized energy values based on user location.
