We foresee each block to become a hedge fund in which data is mined at origin and converted into monetizable values, benefiting the owner of the data, the utility and the overall community.
To enhance efficiency when retrofitting a community with new energy options, we first divide the cities into zip codes, with each community representing a single zip code. Our interactive community design platform built on top of the largest set of publicly available granular energy and pollution data provides a distinct advantage: a matrix of accurate benchmark data to start the community regeneration, at the points with the most pollution.
A key aspect of our retrofit approach is the Prosumer Electricity Block – the PROBLOCK – 1MW Blocks that we build by aggregating and upgrading existing local clean power generation assets, then integrating new assets to complete each block, a typical community is now composed of multiple standard prosumer blocks, where each block may have a single or multiple type of assets connected. All the power generation assets inside a PROBLOCK are orchestrated by our Community Operating System, which records, verifies and transfers unique value (electrons and carbon credits), even as it allocates and settles all daily transactions to each corresponding trade.
Prosumer Energy Systems
Our integrated prosumer energy systems are designed to democratize the demand side of the grid, using plug and play nodes that connect existing or new energy resources to our middleware. Each prosumer node uses a single API connection to the middleware to aggregate different load profiles from each node, then organize the data into larger blocks. In this way, the middleware provides a unique service by uplifting the value of small resources, as well as creating versatility and flexibility to take advantage of advanced grid services.
Our prosumer energy systems transform community members into market participants, who can now extract new value from such underutilized property assets as rooftop spaces, vacant land or parking spaces. We believe any consumer can transform themselves into a digital electricity producer of both clean electricity and renewable energy credits, while collectively decarbonizing their communities, their cities and their region.
