Bittwatt

Energy for the 21st Century

Bittwatt is a matchmaking platform that connects all market players (from DSOs to consumers) and provides a standardized blockchain protocol for sharing relevant business information, all the while creating a decentralized service for energy supply, billing and balancing. The Bittwatt Platform is built to make do without useless bureaucracy by syncing consumption metrics and other relevant information within the blockchain. Bittwatt streamlines current-day operations by removing operational costs and transfer fees, all this within an automated workflow that also optimizes energy transfers on an hourly basis: it transforms normal consumers into smart consumers. On top of that, Bittwatt is built with sustainability in mind: as yield on energy is increased through the Bittwatt blockchain for all participants, energy waste and misuse are stamped out.

About Bittwatt

As things stand today, the current energy ecosystem is built around the exchange of what is essentially unstructured information. This means that literally countless types of documents are used to either sell or buy electricity, and an increasingly large number of commonplace processes (be them back or front-end) are in truth redundant, and lead only to higher prices.


Despite electricity exchange being regulated in nearly all of the world’s countries, in realworld situations what we see is the buildup of significant latencies. Case in point:


• Energy exchanges between traders (or producers) and suppliers (B2B) take days for validation and completion to be completed, and there is no decentralized market where these can take place.
• There is no market for smart-consumers (B2C) from where they can a) transact unused energy supplies and b) choose and switch suppliers based on pre-selected criteria.
• Reporting electricity consumption from suppliers is done with a latency of at least 15 days, so that unbalances cannot possibly be corrected accurately or in real time.
• Energy transit is mandatorily done through the prior booking and setup of cross-border electric lanes; what’s more, once a cross-border lane is booked, it cannot be used by more than a single party - as there is currently no system in place to facilitate multi-party transfer. This is the case, despite multi-party transfer being both legal, as well as rational – since two entities (i.e. one that concedes unused lane space and the other that takes up unused lane space) can benefit at the same time from proper use of resources.
• End-consumers (of the domestic sort) must wait at least 15 days to change energy suppliers; at most, for purely bureaucratic reasons, this process can take 90 days. (E.g. United Kingdom – 15 days, Austria – 30 days, Germany – 2-6 weeks)
 
It’s because of all of these reasons that prices increase. With energy transit slowed-down or even inaccessible as a real option (due to temporal, financial, or bureaucratic constraints), what all parties in the ecosystem face is a gradual yet unpredictable increase in costs. From a technical perspective, this can be summed up simply in that the ecosystem is devoid of a smart demand-response system:


• In terms of grid pressure (which is to say that production cannot be adapted to the demand in the system), and
• Commercial implications (no decentralized market exists so as to keep supply offers and request together in order to enable fast switching)


This lack of adjustability, increases costs dramatically for suppliers of energy (imbalances costs up from 300-400% from normal levels), creating a snowball effect that eventually hits endconsumers.


This is the problem we are fixing.
