Grid+ Drives Green Energy.
Creates economic incentives through market-based energy pricing encouraging the adoption of distributed generation (solar panels), and distributed energy storage (batteries).
Encourages the adoption of distributed energy resources (DERs) allowing more efficient utilization of existing grid infrastructure.
TransactiveGrid is formed to demonstrate tokenization and trading of energy between participants with atomic functionality. Prototype is tested on a microgrid in Brooklyn.
Co-Tricity project is born to explore energy trading between residential and commercial customers. Prototype is developed with European partners.
ConsenSys engages with multiple Fortune 50 energy companies. Several engagements are still ongoing. A small network of Ethereum-aware smart-batteries is deployed in Europe, successfully trading energy with one another.
Q2 2017 - Q3 2017
Alex, Mark, and Karl branch off of Enterprise engagements to form Grid+. Software MVP is developed in parallel with hardware agent prototype. The Grid+ white paper is released.
GRID tokens are sold. See white paper for more information.
