In this paper we present the vision of the Go Green project on a smart home that is capable of decreasing energy consumption while at the same time increasing user comfort. To identify the main challenges we introduce a general model for intelligent homes that describes the current state, the target state and the transition. A key point in the project's vision is the concept of personas and entities to model groups of individuals and their preferences. A second key point is the strategy of coaching the users towards the global system goals by adapting the environment.
