  • Demo Hive, the first testbed developed by our team and presented during the Energy Startup Day 2017 in Zurich, Switzerland on November 30th 2017
  • Winning the Pitch Competition held during the Blockchain2Business by Solarplaza conference


Our vision is to provide everyone with the possibility to create and manage electrical energy communities on the Etherum blockchain, creating a world of shared energy for a brighter future.

The power sector is facing a paradigm change, moving from a centralized approach with big power plants (hydro, coal, gas and nuclear) leading the energy market to a decentralized scenario adopting distributed energy resources (DER), such as solar and wind.

We believe that the future electrical grid should be characterized by an increase of energy sharing between prosumers, consumers and electric utilities, optimizing the energy resource and the usage of the infrastructure. In several countries, the current unbundled situation allows the end-users to freely choose their energy supplier. In this context, enabling technologies like blockchain, and more specifically Ethereum, will allow decentralized prosumers to safely buy and sell electricity to each other at negligible marginal costs.

The Team and the Project 

Hive Power is a spin-off funded at University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) in August 2017 by a team of researchers active in the field of electrical load management, as a part of Swiss national center for electrical infrastructure (SCCER-FURIES). Hive Power develops a platform, which is running entirely on a public blockchain. Our goal is to create energy sharing communities where all participants have a guaranteed economic benefit. In contrast to other energy sharing market schemes, the Hive Power platform is designed to take into account technical aspects of the grid, such as the power quality standards in the distribution grid.

  1. Q2 2018 Hive Power 1.0
    The Hive will consist of single household Workers and multi-family buildings, coupled to a low voltage grid in Switzerland. The Queen will be operated by the local Distribution System Operator.
  1. Q1 2019 Hive Power 2.0
    Innovative features such as access to the flexibility market and real time operation will be implemented to improve economic and technical performance. A microgrid testbed will be set up in a developing country.
  1. Q1 2020 Hive Power 3.0
    The Hive capabilities will be extended through new features, such as investment pools, auto topology discovery, self-healing (fault detection) and multi-owner Hives.

I’m not too familiar with the whole team though the core team and founder are strong. The project addresses a critical need. The tech team is also strong so they will be able to create multiple upgrade generations. The use cases presented in the video are only a fraction of its potential use cases. They need to expand their thoughts to secondary markets. Sound prototype. They’ll require to operationalize. Great job.
