It’s all about giving the power back to the people. Literally.
When Dr. Jemma Green was completing her PhD she found that apartments in Australia didn’t have easy access to renewable energy.
She decided to try and solve this problem by opening up the energy market, so people in apartment buildings could trade energy between themselves, without the need for a third-party energy company. To do this, Green developed a battery system which was the first of its kind in Australia. It would help people trade peer-to-peer, but she still needed software that would be able to sustain the process.
Power Ledger is a peer-to-peer, blockchain-based energy trading platform, where renewable energy can be sold between buyers and sellers without a middleman.
