The world is rapidly heading towards urbanized living with a high concentration of housing. At the same time, energy is becoming more and more decentralized. These trends create major planning issues for players in the housing and power markets, as well as for the city planners both locally and globally. We aim at tackling those challenges with the Game of Homes project. The new project “Game of Homes” was initiated to create an innovative stakeholder constellation and test a new methodology to take an active and leading role in developing the future of housing.

Ideon Open designed the open innovation process to create new solutions and visions for the topic. The Game of Homes project features four specially designed innovation sprints for companies: Case Design – Think Tank – Do Tank – Policy Tank. Currently, the collaboration is established between housing and tech companies among which are Sony, Skanska and Kraftringen.

“The Map of Power” has been the first case. In order to create faster, more resilient and more proactive energy planning for the future of housing, the aim for Sony and Kraftringen is to find solutions together for modelling of new power maps. This case is now going into the last phase of the process, and we are looking for new companies to join Game of Homes and participate in the next case.
