STARTUP OF THE WEEK
Decentralised systems, clean energy and digital technologies are the building blocks for energy companies of the future. Do you want to learn who makes our energy future happen?
We curate for you weekly innovative startups, which are disrupting the energy business of today.
This week's feature is:
WHAT IS THE UNDERLYING TECHNOLOGY THAT YOU ARE USING?
Deploy the blockchain technology to develop smart contracts that bound and define the relationship between the different entities of the Energy Efficiency process (investors, clients, and energy companies) under which terms and conditions between them are set and executed automatically with no intermediaries. We do it taking into considerations all changing variables in the context of Energy Efficiency which will be addressed by the energy companies and reflected in a transparent decentralized ledger. In addition, this will facilitate exchanging metering data, billing, and financial transactions.
What are the partnerships that you are seeking?
Blockchain is a new technology that still is in a very early stage of development mainly in the energy sector. Therefore, we are seeking for technical support in terms of developing the blockchain infrastructure. We are seeking to exchange the knowledge required to develop the smart contracts, communication medium, security controls, and authentication mechanisms. Moreover, we are looking for investors who are willing to take a step toward energy efficiency programs by funding our project and becoming our activity partners.
What is the specific problem you are addressing?
The intangible and comparatively small nature of Energy Efficiency projects discourages traditional bankers and investors from investing in this area. The main challenge is the number of variables that bound the investments in the Energy Efficiency projects. Usually, the bank requires rigid guarantees to verify their investments. Moreover, Energy Efficiency can only be measured as a reduction against certain baseline consumption and not as a measure in terms of incremental physical production to encourage the investors and bankers.
WHAT IS YOUR OFFERING AND HOW DOES IT
TRANSFORM/DISRUPT THE ENERGY sector?
We aim to develop a decentralized data platform to facilitate financial transactions and to define the relationship between bankers, energy-saving companies, and the clients. Consequently, this would boost up the two-thirds of our energy efficiency potential that is still untouched. In the EU alone, public building renovation represents a €120 billion market over the 2017-2020 period. In addition to helping reducing carbon emissions, and creating millions of new jobs.
