We're creating the power grid of tomorrow, today

Our mission is to bring unprecedented speed, security, and flexibility to billions of power transactions each year

Why We're Unique

Backed by 100+ patents granted and pending, our blockchain-based EnergyNet™ platform lowers power bills, increases market transparency, boosts returns for distributed energy generators, enables flexible demand, and supports a cleaner power grid.

Who We Help
  • Owners of buildings and campuses, which can sell onsite power generation and other energy services to tenants and automate real-time transactions using smart contracts.
  • Retail electric providers, municipal utilities, and electric coops, which can directly procure power from distributed energy generators, and offer differentiated, higher margin, and greener products and programs to their customers.
Who Are We

Our team of technology executives and entrepreneurs is building on decades of prior experience starting and leading successful ventures and enterprises in telecommunications, energy, and mobile commerce. After three years in stealth product development, we are publicly launching our blockchain-based EnergyNet™ platform.
