EnAm = Energie-Ampel (German expression for energy (traffic) light)
EnAm inspires people by simplifying complex topics pragmatically and developing easy, family-friendly products with users who are ready to experiment.
A key customer segment for the EnAm is the prosumer. A prosumer generates energy, consumes it directly and only feeds surpluses into the electrical grid. At the same time, the prosumer receives energy from the grid if he does not have sufficient self-generation.
EnAm is a product for private persons, also families and smaller businesses (e. g. bakeries). Therefore, the product is easy to use and understandable.

- User Information:
o Traffic light logic (red, yellow, green) for self-generated energy in comparison to energy consumption
red: more consumption than self-generated energy
yellow: more or less the same consumption and self-generated energy
green: more self-generated energy than consumption
o Visualized load profiles (generation & consumption) for previous 24h
o Prediction of the load profiles by using standard consumption and weather data
o Suggestions for manually activating domestic appliances (e.g. washing machine)depending on availability of self-generated energy
o Information and prediction of when the next green phase is expected (time)
o Display of current energy-generation, consumption and further information
o Presentation of achieved savings (of energy and money)
o Weather forecast
