Now here´s something I like! The intelligent thermostat Nest is just what we need to increase the efficiency in energy consumption. By automatic, flexible systems it´s easier to reduce the need of energy for heating and cooling buildings.
In a global scale, an automatic, easily operated thermostat controlling the temperature isingenious, just like the iPhone- generation would expect. The user-friendly and esthetic design is, by the way, designed by none other than Tony Fadell. He´s the mind behind Apple´s iPod and iPhone! If revolutionizing the music industry is possible within a few years, I feel pretty confident the same should be possible in the energy sector.
