Hjalmar Nilsonne is the co-founder and CEO of Watty. The Watty is a small device that connects to a fusebox and monitors household electricity use. Its companion smartphone app uses algorithms to detect and identify appliances in the home based on energy usage patterns.
This information can then be used to save money on bills and cut down on carbon emissions. The company raised $3.32 million in funding from Cleantech Invest and EQT Ventures in July 2016. Watty employs 22 people in Stockholm and Palo Alto.
Hjalmar believes that the transition to sustainable use and production of energy will be the biggest challenge for our society in the coming decades.
