Technical Development


Grow the market for solar panels sales and rental in Umeå by providing early adopters with a unique in app user experience – making them proud they invested in green energy.


Alstra is a real-time user information app that enables users to see their energy production and consumption, total financial savings and environmental contribution, in real-time.

About the client

Umeå Energi is a provider of sustainable energy, based in northern Sweden. Umeå is one of six cities, collaborating for a sustainable future in the EU backed ruggedised project.

How we did it

We began with a Design Sprint, built prototypes and carried out in-home testing and customer interviews, before finalising the bold, bright and user-friendly co-branded app.


The vision for the Alstra app is to be a central part of Umeå Energi’s solar offering as the energy company grows market share across the region.

The Tech

Data is collected in real-time from a Wago Controller and transmitted to the cloud, before being analysed and manipulated into human language and consumed by the app.
