HYDRAO links up with the Schneider Electric Positive Energy family challenge in Grenoble

The HYDRAO team met today with the families participating in Schneider Electric’s internal Positive Energy family challenge. We really enjoyed sharing ideas on how individuals and businesses can make small day-to-day changes to reduce their energy and water consumption. The challenge is a great initiative that promotes wider debate about preserving natural ressources, and prompts a rich exchange of ideas. We received some great feedback to the HYDRAO smart shower demo. Well done to all the families involved!
