Lawrence is a strong believer in the value of hard work. His 20-plus years of industry experience run the gamut from field auditing to managing relationships with Fortune 100 clients, and when he sees an opportunity for improvement, he considers it a personal invitation. Lawrence combines a wealth of scientific, technological and practical knowledge with a knack for ingenuity to develop solutions in energy that have never been seen in the industry.
This paper considers the concept of ‘transactive energy’ and a range of supporting regulatory policies as a possible future framework for addressing the key challenges posed by the energy transition.
More Than a Platform.
Exergy is the key.
Combining blockchain’s decentralized digital ledger technology with our own innovative methods for capitalizing on energy and data, we’ve created a permissioned data platform to develop localized marketplaces for transacting energy across existing grid infrastructure. Though we’re just beginning to uncover the potential of Exergy to influence the energy model of the future, we’ve identified three primary use cases.
On the Exergy platform, prosumers—generating energy through their own renewable resource—can transact energy autonomously in near-real time with consumers on the platform in their local marketplace.
The distribution system operator is granted access to consumer data like building management systems. Using price as a proxy, the DSO manages energy use, load balancing, and demand response at negotiated rates.
When a charging station—public or private—or an electric vehicle has a surplus of energy, it is made available for purchase on the local network. Consumers can set budgets and be alerted to the availability via mobile app.
As an innovation of LO3 Energy, Exergy is built on decades of expertise in energy efficiency programs and regulations, structured finance, and developing technologies.
