Sweden's innovation agency, Vinnova, has awarded $100,000 to Lund for the CoAction project, in which Project Energy Society is included. The goal is to create a new electricity grid with energy sharing, enabling a low fixed price for electricity.
In Lund, in the south of Sweden, the first prototype for the Energy Society will be built and is expected to be operational next year.
A short circuit in a switchgear knocked out two nuclear power reactors, the subway, traffic lights and disrupted radio transmissions. A savior in times of need was a few hundred household batteries.
The internet runs on the world's largest standard, the Internet Protocol. Now a group is creating an open standard for energy sharing, the Energy Protocol, EP.
At this time in history, an abundance of clean energy for a low fixed cost is possible.
💡 With storage and the ability to share energy you can get all the electricity you need for a low flat fee, creating a new society.
The goal is to be able to offer all the electricity you need at a low fixed price. Anyone who thinks that would be important for society and wants to contribute to that, is welcome to join and help.
Jonas Birgersson became an internet pioneer by promising and delivering all the internet you need for $20 a month. Now he believes that the same thing can be done with electricity. "For a low, fixed price, you have all the electricity you need."
