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. This enables participants in these communities to balance the amount of energy used with the amount of energy available on a local scale and attain optimal use of it as a result. Energy exchanges can occur between offices, residential properties and vehicles and will be transparently registered. Because the source of the energy can be traced, the decrease in carbon footprint can be substantiated. To achieve this, available data and knowledge of buildings will be put innovative use.


TROEF’s tangible targets

By connecting participants in energy communities, TROEF will contribute to the development of and provide access to the Internet of Energy, which TROEF deems will play a significant part in the way forward to the energy system of the future.
TROEF’s tangible targets are:

  • to improve the return on sustainable measures by thirty per cent;
  • to cut energy costs by twenty per cent;
  • to reduce the investment needs of the energy network by thirty per cent;
  • to achieve built environments built in a demonstrably carbon neutral way.

The TROEF consortium

The TROEF consortium consists of multiple businesses and institutions with a wide range of specializations relating to the development of the layered energy ecosystem. The consortium consists of real estate developers, energy service providers, platform service providers, data service providers, network operators/balance responsible parties, educational and research institutions, standardization platforms, and market-facilitating parties.
