Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. Preventing further global warming requires structural changes in both society and our lifestyle. Any action that contributes to this, is of great value. For example, more and more people are generating their own energy, save energy or make sustainable choices. At the same time, many people cannot participate yet in this transition, due to a lack of money or act perspective.
In the region of Groningen we build smart and data driven solutions for enabling an inclusive energy transition.
We use smart meter data in order to promote sustainable action. Every action is worth tokens. These tokens represent value. With tokens you can use the neighborhood electric vehicle or you get a discount on your energy bill. You can also invest tokens in your neighborhood, for initiatives that make the neighborhood more sustainable. For example, a neighborhood battery that provides sustainable energy to local residents with low income. In this way we make the energy transition accessible and beneficial to everyone.
