SF – 1,000 Cheeseburgers: A New Map of America’s Daily Energy Use

Date/Time: July 28, 2016

Speaker: Saul Griffith, Co-Founder & CEO, Otherlab

Saul Griffith, co-founder and CEO of Otherlab, presented for the first time an interactive wall-sized map detailing America’s daily energy use at the July gathering of What’s Now: San Francisco at Capgemini’s Applied Innovation Exchange. Saul and his Otherlab team aggregated data from a wide range of obscure databases and created a dynamic visualization that shows the flow of energy through the entire American economy and society.

Every day the average American uses the same amount of energy that he or she would get from eating 1,000 cheeseburgers. That’s the equivalent of all Americans consuming 320 billion burgers worth of energy every 24 hours.
