Emma-Ashley Liles and Ioanna Armouti
'Coding the future of clean energy'
Join Emma-Ashley Liles and Ioanna Armouti as they talk about how they are building the intelligent zero-carbon energy system of the future at Kaluza, an OVO company.
Kaluza is a software platform enabling end customers to not only reduce their energy bills but their carbon emissions too. It automates the charging of thousands of smart devices in people’s homes - including electric vehicles, heating systems and storage batteries - so that they use energy when it is cheapest and greenest.
Ioanna and Emma-Ashley will discuss the challenge of decarbonising the energy system as a key part of tackling the climate crisis - the biggest threat that faces humanity, and how Kaluza’s technology is helping bring benefits to customers, and the energy system at large, to enable a cleaner and affordable future.
Ioanna and Emma-Ashley will also discuss how a huge diversity of people will be needed in this complex mission that affects so many, and are excited to share their work with the Codehers community for this reason.
