WHAT HAPPENS WHEN CLEAN ENERGY GOES LOCAL?
Our first service is a local energy marketplace that lets Providing Homes (homes producing renewable energy) sell their surplus energy directly to local homes and organizations.
This marketplace offers people more control and transparency over their energy while keeping the value of energy produced closer to home. We hope to strengthen communities by connecting them through energy.
This is our first step in many to transform communities and our relationship with energy through technology.
OUR PILOT PROGRAMS IN GERMANY
In our pilot projects via our digital platform we connect privately owned photovoltaic systems with local consumers. The test areas are Essen Kettwig and Mülheim in Germany. The project is running since October 2016.
Kettwig is the largest and southernmost borough of the city of Essen, situated directly at the river Ruhr. Kettwig is mostly coined by residential areas as well as local recreation areas, e.g. the Kettwig lake. The borough has approximately 17.700 inhabitants.
Mülheim is a city in the western Ruhr area. With around 200.000 inhabitants it belongs to the metropole area Rhine Ruhr and forms its centre surrounded by Duisburg, Essen and Oberhausen.
Amongst the first larger energy consumer for the pilot, there are a school, the Theodor-Heuss-Gymnasium, and a water company, RWW Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft. The prosumers can choose freely, which consumer they want to supply with their surplus generated energy.
Solar energy for bright minds
The Theodor-Heuss-Gymnasium is a all-day school in one big school building. Round about 760 pupils, 60 teachers and 20 additional members of staff live, learn and work under one roof. The social life is highly valued and is being promoted especially by the school’s curriculum. The school also supports various social projects.
Solar power becomes drinking water
Westfälische Wasserwerksgesellschaft (RWW)
RWW is one of the biggest water utilities in Germany. The company runs nine water works and supplies more than 3,000 km pipeline and 135,000 customers and industrial units in the western Ruhr area with drinking and raw water.
