InnoBlog: Can tech giants capture the next trillion-dollar market?

Imagine your smart home from the future - your lighting and climate control systems are optimised throughout the day as you move around the house. The solar panels stacked on your roof can power your home all day while your electric car in the driveway can keep the lights on when the sun goes down. Your smart home devices (like Alexa and Siri) sell electricity from your roof to the neighbor’s when you are away. And at the end of the month, Google publishes your electricity bill but credits your account. After all, you are a prosumer of electricity.

 

The technology for realising your dream house already exists and some tech giants are already exploring ways to facilitate this to consumers and capture this market.
