What Problem are we solving?
Climate change poses catastrophic risks with uncertain timeframes.
Renewable energy technologies are responding well but they remain too expensive and so their impact on carbon emissions is slow.
Consumers are concerned about climate change but they continue to choose more affordable electricity generated from fossil fuels.
The Zero Carbon Project Solution
How Zero Carbon Markets Work
Suppliers of zero carbon energy can source from fossil fuels but pay a small premium to offset the carbon emissions using international carbon credits.
To cover the carbon offset premium in order to beat fossil fuel prices, our Market applies intense competition by attracting a wide range of suppliers to Market with their best zero carbon energy prices, tailored specifically to our consumers size, location and usage pattern.
- Suppliers submit their best zero carbon energy offers
- Offers are compared transparently using like-for-like comparisons, using an online switching system for households and an online reverse auction system for business.
- Consumers select their preferred cheapest contract option across our Market.
- The consumer completes the contract directly with the successful energy supplier.
How the Zero Carbon Token Economy Works
Zero Carbon tokens have been designed to be valuable in order to provide the catalyst for change and provide incentives for consumers to contribute towards tackling climate change.
Smart contracts have been deployed to the blockchain to manage the use and flow of Zero Carbon token transactions in the Zero Carbon economy.
The Zero Carbon Project has been established by a group of energy market professionals who are passionate about contributing to the global climate change challenge through the application of new technologies. The team works for Beond Group which is an energy and carbon consultancy servicing top end energy users such as Knight Frank, Capita and Salford City Council. Beond is an award-winning European energy consultancy based in London.
