A “O” Watt Society

Una sociedad de “0” WatiosRoland Stulz´s presentation on the concept of the 2000 Watt society has inspired us all. It made us take distance from our daily activities and combats and realize that saving energy actually is the aim for all eco-builders.

It was also a great example that showed how we managed to live with it. We opened the windows, got closer to each other to listen to our colleagues, in an intimate situation that increased our interest and intentions to share. For about 2 hours we became an ideal “O” watt society.

Lets try and become a 2000 Watt Society in the following decades.
