How To Invest In Power Transition
In early 2018 Power Transition raised seed funding which was match funded by Innovate UK; these funds were used to develop and deploy its technology at a 47 unit eco-home development in Corby, UK that was designed by the leadership team.
Following the success of this project, Power Transition is developing its platform beyond the micro-grid use case and is engaging with numerous parties including commercial estates and local authorities, the NHS, Distributed Network Operators, energy aggregators, and energy producers. We are in discussions with BEIS, KTN, regulators and decision makers in the UK energy sector and are in conversation with Elexon about the implementation of our platform at national level.
The current global situation has highlighted the necessity for energy security and stability. During the current Covid-19 situation we see great opportunity in continuing our business development activities to support energy asset optimisation and the production of new revenue models for sustainable development. Significant interest in our software architecture platform continues as it provides a much needed short, medium and long term solution for grid networks and the energy sector, which are under significant pressure with or without Covid-19. Our solution enables the efficient exchange and access of data across multiple energy vectors and assets, whilst guaranteeing cybersecurity. Our platform helps to keep the lights on and builds resilience in the sector. It creates new revenue streams, provides optimisation to enable Distributed Energy Resource Management and support flexibility services, whilst saving carbon and reducing energy costs.
Following initial seed investment our current target has been revised to £300K at a £2.8M pre-money valuation as a mid course correction in response to the current Covid-19 global crisis.
We have secured the upfront investment required to launch our Crowd Cube campaign.
Power Transition has partnered with a 4th generation DLT/blockchain protocol called Hedera Hashgraph.
Hedera’s is a world leader in DLT. We use their public, decentralised network to enable fast, fair and secure applications to be built on it. This means we offer a far quicker and more energy efficient solution to customers.
