The future of the future
This is the Tomorrow Lab
We want a better future for the next generation. We’ve thought of answers to the questions people always ask, like: Why can’t we get energy from sausages? Why don’t we store more energy in Tupperware? Trust us, we have the best scientists. Including those who know someone, whose brother’s girlfriend’s sister knows someone who has seen a Nobel Prize winner… We think that the best inventions for planet earth are right here, on planet earth.
Have a look at our ideas! Some of them might never leave the lab, but the others are being used at E.ON NOW! You can find them by clicking the links below.
Energy that gets under your skin
Wasting paper was yesterday. Invoices can now be tattooed on our service staff, who conveniently deliver to your doorstep, for filing.
Achtung! We’re experimenting with fireworks tonight.
What better way to ring in the new year that with a beautiful explosion of lights. We’ve had a busy year of wonderful experiments. What will 2018 bring? One thing’s certain: more weird stuff.
May the fish be with you
We’re always thinking about the future. You’ve heard of the lightsaber, but where is the swordfish saber? ... We’re working on it… among other important things.
Everyone knows that hangry feeling (hungry + angry= hangry) and it drives you straight to the fridge, which is empty. So, your mum tells you to ‘have a piece of fruit’, NIGHTMARE! With our new pizza drone, you will never have to look at another apple in your life.
Get Ready for Takeoff
Our networks are really taking off, thanks to our specially trained rocket worms. Once we blast them into the ground, they start to build an enormous electricity distribution network. Take a look for yourself at how big our networks are and why they’re so important.
Time after time
Our research has shown that you would have a lot more time, if you had more time. Our scientists have found a way to add an extra number on the clock. Why it’s genius: the sun shines longer & that means you get more energy!
But not in Movember… (and no, we're not doing a Sean Connery impression)
FINALLY, the hipster beard comes in handy. Store your electricity in your beard! Unfortunately, this only works if your beard is made from copper wires (red heads, your time to shine!). So, for all you non-red heads, we have alternative storage solutions for you!
This has nothing to do with Khaleesi, but everything to do with our beautiful Drachen (German for kite!). We really do have kites – ones that produce energy! And as we fly ours offshore, there’s no chance of getting stuck in a kite-eating tree. Take that, Charlie Brown!
Fix up, look smart
Christmas stress = gift stress. But not with our smart fridge! Only the coolest gifts are good enough for our smart fridge. However, the fridge is not the only piece of furniture that makes your home so clever!
Move over mobile homes, we’ve got mobile cities
Recent research has shown that city trips aren’t as easy they used to be. Some cities are now simply too big to travel around! That’s why we’re looking into making cities more mobile. But unfortunately, there’s not much room between the buildings.
Halloween in the #tmrrwlab
We had to learn the hard way. Vampires don't like solar energy.
Our new star attraction will knock you right out of your tail coat. Our waddling penguins will waddle all over special panels in your house to produce energy. Unfortunately, it’s not ready yet… but we’re working on it.
When you love the lights (like, really love the lights)
We’re making the street lights so intelligent, they’re almost human. These glowing beacons of light can be your true companions, so much so, that you might fall in love.
