In today’s blog post we would like to introduce you to an interesting field of application of our Revolution Pi by the company Oxygen Technologies.
The german-based company Oxygen Technologies is a Fraunhofer spin-off in the field of energy informatics and develops in partnership with KUNBUS algorithms and IT solutions for automated peer-to-peer (P2P) trading of energy generated by decentralized power plants.
What exactly does that mean? Well, the idea of Oxygen Technologies is that private and commercial electricity producers (e. g. by using a solar plant on the roof) can trade their electricity decentrally and directly among each other without any middlemen. The aim of this new type of infrastructure is, among other things, to pay lower electricity prices as consumers and to be less dependent on the big electricity companies.
In order for the system to work, the individual power plants and consumers must of course be able to constantly exchange their data with each other. Oxygen Technologies has chosen RevPi Core hardware and uses it as an intelligent gateway to integrate each participant into the decentralized network.
More information about this interesting project can be found directly on the Oxygen Technologies website.
