Neighbor dining for energy saving

A rather peculiar new idea by Creative artist Luong Lu and Vattenfal, one of the largest utlitity companies in Germany, if not Europe.

It is about the idea, that people living alone waste a lot of energy cooking meals for just one person. But, rather than choosing the obvious solution (ordering pizza), here is a much more original solution:

(neighbor dining is) a community website integrated with Foursquare that would detail the daily menu of all users. Interested folks would simply send a request to that user and join them for dinner. And what’s in it for the host? Members who serve the dinner get a discount on their energy bill when the guests ‘check-in’ to their place using Foursquare. We think its an excellent way to cure loneliness and save energy at the same time. (thanks)
