YOU, ENERGY, AND TECHNOLOGY
ENERGY one will change the way we buy, consume, produce and understand energy. We apply modern technology for our customers - individuals, corporates and communities alike - to help them reach ever new levels of responsible and sustainable energy usage, in addition to cost-savings.
With our successful track record of projects in our European home markets, and a wide-range of blockchain-based energy products and services, we will create new market segments, and make ENERGY one extremely competitive in existing ones.
Energy markets have not fully exploited technology, and are stuck in the past. With the global need for decarbonisation, market deregulation all over the world, and the availability of advanced technologies like smart grids, the internet of things, electro-mobility and particularly blockchain technology, ENERGY one is here to change that.
A STRONG TECHNICAL FOUNDATION FOR GROWTH
The ENERGY one blockchain, which is already serving thousands of customers, will be the technological foundation to handle transations in the ENERGY one world. Blockchain technology guarantees high efficiency and flexibility of our processes and high security and data sovereignty for our customers.
SUSTAINABLE PORTFOLIO OF GENERATION ASSETS
ENERGY one will continuously invest a relevant share of its income in operating renewable generation assets, mainly solar and wind, and will give customers the opportunity to invest in those tokenized assets, reducing their energy bills, eventually even down to zero.
NEIGHBOURHOOD ENERGY SOLUTIONS
ENERGY one utilizes blockchain technology to implement “neighborhood energy solutions” through cross-sector integration of peer-to-peer trading, electricity generation, battery storage, heating and cooling, and electro-mobility.
Projects implemented by ENERGY one can, for instance, bill tenants for energy from different sources at different prices, thus providing incentives for the use of electricity generated by the local cogeneration unit or solar panels.
BILLING OF EV CHARGING
No secure and auditable method exists to date to bill electric vehicles (EVs) charging on private or public power outlets (as opposed to dedicated EV charging stations), as vehicle identification is not possible. Particularly home-charging of electric company cars cannot be billed to the company in a secure and tamper-proof way.
ENERGY one provides companies owning electric company car fleets with an accurate and secure blockchain-based billing mechanism regarding private re-fueling by employees:
vehicles are tagged for tamper-proof identification
an adapter communicates with the vehicle and the billing app, releases and registers the electricity flow
electricity can be directly charged to the bill of the employer, or lease company, and deducted from the employees power bill
alternatively, an auditable invoice is issued for submission to the company
Smart meters will make energy usage transparent in real time. They will identify power guzzlers and let consumers benchmark their own power consumption and power costs against peers and neighbors, and learn from those with better “performance”.
Machine-learning and energy disaggregation offer this opportunity even to the many consumers with analog meters.
A solar system on the roof, installed by ENERGY one partners, can usually provide the majority of the electricity for a household when combined with battery storage.
Smart thermostats, whether programmed or app-controlled, make sure that rooms are heated or cooled only when needed, significantly bringing down energy costs and CO2 emissions.
