A new layered energy ecosystem

Optimal energy exchange with the lowest CO2 emissions possible

TROEF aims to accelerate the transition to renewable energy in built environments by developing a new energy ecosystem. The application of this energy ecosystem will demonstrably lower the carbon footprint, reduce the costs of transition, and enable users to increase their return on investments towards renewable energy. 

An energy ecosystem is a community in which both private and commercial connected participants can exchange locally generated renewable energy with other participants through the use of technologies, propositions and customer journeys developed by TROEF. This is called the Internet of Energy.

Project Description


The TROEF layered ecosystem

Local energy community platform

Provides complete insight into individual energy use for both the utility and the residential sector.

Internet of Energy Platform

Connects and conducts local energy communities.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

Optimal use of energy contributes to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Interactive Dashboards

Present a clear overview of realized carbon reduction, flexibility values, peak reduction, energy use, and energy value.

Demonstratable origin of energy

Demonstrated and Guaranteed the origin of energy using blockchain technology.

Interfacing techniques

Connect local LEC-platforms to each other to allow a local energy community to exchange energy data
