Electron is harnessing  blockchain technologies to design more efficient, resilient and flexible systems for the energy sector.

Our Vision

 

Electron's  vision is to capitalise on the opportunities presented by the rapid changes in the energy market being driven by decarbonisation, decentralisation, digitalisation and democratisation. We aim to create innovative, collaborative solutions, based on the blockchain's guarantees of a secure, robust and transparent platform. We will do this at the lowest cost whilst providing the greatest benefit to all market participants.

 

About Us

 

We are a team of blockchain, energy and e-trading professionals using decentralised technology to advance the shared infrastructure of the energy markets.

 

We design efficient, robust and innovation friendly systems to support the Industry’s transition to smart grid infrastructure and new market norms of decarbonisation, decentralisation, digitalisation and democratisation.

Decarbonisation

As wind and solar generation comes to represent an increasing proportion of our power generation mix, our electricity supply-base is increasingly intermittent and inflexible. Since electrical supply and demand have to be matched on a continuous basis, we need more demand-side flexibility.

Decentralisation

Unlike traditional centralised coal plants, renewable assets are often connected to the local grid. This presents an opportunity to increase grid efficiency and reduce transmission losses. It also introduces new challenges such as two-way power flows, a need for greater visibility and integration of decentralised assets and introduces the potential for new, locational pricing models.

 

Digitalisation

Rapid developments in smart grid technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), home energy management system (HEMS), Internet of Things (IoT) and other connected devices offer greater visibility and control than ever before. It also creates new requirements for co-ordination, interpretation and data security.

Democratisaion

Increasing desire for a more active role in the energy market has lead to the rise of "prosumers" who seek to generate their own electricity from personal or shared community assets, and/or purchase energy directly through peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions. Production is becoming more ‘democratic’ with more parties participating in the energy value proposition.

A shared registration platform for all UK gas and electricity supply points to facilitate faster switching. This technology is now being extended to cover new types of assets.

A common trading venue for all demand-side response actions to enable collaborative trading in the current hierarchical system as well as peer-to-peer and micro-grid trading

Encryption techniques that can enable parties to to extract value from smart meter data without compromising users’ data privacy

Developing the decentralised web community

Peer-to-peer protocols and blockchain technology are already evolving the way the web is structured and operates. The open source projects that these are based on are key to developing modern, scalable networks. Electron recognises the need to participate in these communities and is taking an active development role in supporting them.

 

In testing and developing our platforms we have built and released several tools that expand the connectivity of the Ethereum and IPFS decentralised web projects. The tools we have built allow us to extract and parse data from blockchain systems so that we can analyse the performance and behaviours of the network. By open-sourcing these tools we are ensuring that the community has the connectivity and functionality it needs to continue to prosper and re-define modern computer systems.
