Energy2market GmbH (e2m), a leader in aggregated energy trading throughout Europe, today announced its strategic partnership with Swytch, a blockchain-based renewable energy data and incentive platform, for a Proof of Concept test. Beginning in January 2018, e2m has been testing the efficacy of the Swytch blockchain platform across its portfolio of assets in Germany, equivalent to approximately 3.5Gw of solar, wind, hydro, and biogas energy capacity. The deal affirms the ability of Swytch's technology to function at industry-leading scale as it pioneers an entirely new blockchain protocol built to verify and track renewable energy production.
The battery farm built at the BMW Group factory in Leipzig is a large energy storage system comprising up to 700 BMW i3 batteries – a large number of which are in their “second life” – forming the currently biggest battery facility of this type worldwide. This system can buffer energy, e.g. from wind power systems at the factory premises and, hence, optimise local energy management.
