We design an online platform for energy cooperatives and prosumers. Segments of the platforms are already functional such as  a digital application for the Energy Production  from Photovoltaics and an application for dimensioning a Photovoltaic System by an Energy Cooperative.

We are interested in synergies and research programs with the following topics:
Informational material for citizens’ energy in collaboration with academics, researchers and large electricity supply companies
Possibility of mass purchases of technical equipment (eg photovoltaic panels, small wind turbines, insulating materials)
Digital applications for energy communities and Building Information Management
Study of creation of optimal energy cooperatives (community detection) through power flow study
Finding resources for energy cooperatives’ projects through innovative financial methods (eg crowd funding), as well as informing the communities about the current national and European funding programs
Dynamic price contracts between producers and consumers, using smart contracts based on blockchain technology

What else did we prepare for you?

We started dealing with the Energy Communities before they were legislated in Greece, as we saw their significant prospects. On January 23, 2018, Law 4513/2018 was published, which shaped their operating framework.

While observing and contributing to new Energy Community projects over the past two years, we have seen a huge gap in information. There are people who would like to contribute to the creation of an Energy Community but do not know how to do so. It needs a lot of study time to feel safe that you have the needed knowledge to propose to friends and partners to be part of an energy cooperative. Our experience has led to the creation of an original new service to facilitate innovators who want to start an Energy Community and inspire their island, their neighborhood or their working environment.

We can be your partners and support you with our experience via presentations, informative material and the additional technical knowledge that you will need as you proceed with these steps. Contact us to discuss about your needs, ideas and – why not – dreams!
