The ElectriCChain and related affiliates act in the field of Blockchain Tech and Digital Assets aiming to initiate the Energy Transition. The following internet sites and companies are afiliated to SolarCoin : www.solarcoin.org, www.solarchange.co,www.solcrypto.com, www.electricchain.org, www.electraseed.com and SolarCorner (under construction)
SolarCoin is a Digital Asset aiming to incentivize global solar power uptake and initiate the Energy Transition:
SolarCoin is granted at the rate of 1SLR per MWh of proven solar energy and has been recognized by the International Renewable Energy Agency as a tool to reward solar owners worldwide. SolarCoin increases the returns of a solar installation and decreases payback times.
The SolarChange and Solcrypto platforms act as SolarCoin Claims Facilitator websites in the EMEA and APAC regions, enabling end users (solar owners) to register to the SolarCoin program. SolarChange has taken part to the IBM Accelerator Program Alpha Zone for a 6-month period in 2016.
The ElectriCChain is:
The Blockchain technology powering the SolarCoin Digital Asset. The ElectriCChain gathers non-confidential Data related to solar owners. The Goal of ElectriCChain is to build a network of (currently) +7million solar installations worldwide, and according to IEA numbers reaching +200million within the next 15 to 25 years.
A common tool to help gather and publish Data for Scientific (ie: Climate Change), Meteorological (ie: Weather/Micro-climate forecast) and Financial (ie: Solar Hedging) applications.
The ElectriCChain is an Andorran-registered company transitioning towards a non-profit (.org), acting as an Incubator and Consultancy for Solar Blockchain-related applications.
ElectriCChain also serves as Claims Facilitator to the SolarCoin Foundation and is the leading Business Development unit in the SolarCoin ecosystem. More information on how to participating and claiming SolarCoins on the Project5 SolarCoin Page.
Concepts, Pilots, and eventually massively scaled deployments:
The ElectriCChain is developing Solar Energy Blockchain-related projects (currently 12) under Observation of Business Partners such as GridSingularity / Ethereum, Chain of Things, IOTA, BitSeed and the MIT, NASA and IBM. Specifically, a Blockchain-IOT Datalogger is being developed which will enable direct communication of solar power production Data to a unique Blockchain, the ElectriCChain for betterment of Global Climate monitoring and SolarCoin granting, hence incentivizing for further solar power worldwide and enabling the Energy Transition.
A Pilot was presented on June 1st in London to Cisco, RWE and other participants at the Rainmaking Loft/StartupBootCamp and in Belgium at the I-Cleantech Cluster in Flanders to solar energy companies and is listed as Projects 3 and 4 in our Projects List. This Concept demonstrated that Solar Inverters can communicate directly solar production values to a Blockchain for SolarCoin granting (incentivizing), regardless of inverter brand&model, on a constant flux basis using the IOTA Tangle Blockchain and the SolarCoin Blockchain and the demonstration is done using a 10USD Raspberry Pi-3. By riding the SolarCoin Blockchain, this Blockchain Datalogger enables inverter and monitoring companies to use a common standard communications protocol, also allowing for more accurate (live) monitoring of solar installs using the IOTA Tangle and empowering Prosumers to trade/store solar energy through smart contracts. This information can be kept under a private or public (or both) Blockchain for own applications or public use and ultimately allows for predictive analytic potential of micro-climates, live pollution tracking, finance innovation and improved regulation and transparency, hence opening new markets, participants and opportunities. Prosumers, Utility companies, the Solar Industry and Academics are most likely to benefit from the Solcrypto Datalogger.
Our Mission at ElectriCChain is supra-national as we are building a Consortium of utilities, inverter and monitoring companies, technologists, software firms, solar energy developers and prosumers to participate into delivering more solar energy worldwide and initiate the Energy Transition.
