Traceable, renewable energy seamlessly being tracked locally in real time between buildings, infrastructure, and consumers is already being tested in a real-world environment.
IOTA will be present at the opening, along with ENTRA, the building owners, and many tenants including Sopra Steria. Together they will demonstrate a Proof of Concept (PoC) developed in collaboration with the UK’s largest car manufacturer, Jaguar Land Rover, and ENGIE Lab CRIGEN, the corporate center for Research & Development for the major French energy operator, ENGIE Group.
When buildings and vehicles talk to each other
The PoC will allow visitors to follow the energy usage and provenance of the award-winning Jaguar I-Pace connected to the building through an electric charger.
A lot of energy today, also renewables, is notoriously difficult to trace back to a point of origin. Particularly when you want the energy to be green, this can lead to frustration.
In order to validate the energy’s origin, the Tangle, IOTA’s immutable distributed ledger technology is used to create a tamper-proof record of all transactions and sources
On the road to a safe and sustainable future
This is in line with Jaguar Land Rover’s Destination Zero Strategy (Zero Accidents, Zero Congestion, Zero Emissions) as well as ENGIE Group’s leading efforts in the transition to renewable energy. In a press release put out today, Russell Vickers, manager, Jaguar Land Rover’s vehicle-as-a-service engineering group states:
“This agile initiative demonstrates vividly how cities can transform both infrastructure and transportation into a sustainable and mutually beneficial ecosystem. We are excited ...
