Presenting A Grid Share Embedded Network Model
Build smarter with our designs..
Staged integration for efficiency..
Custom installations with end users in mind..
Enduring networks enhancing revenue streams..
Background & Introduction
Grid Share Limited's core service is around implementing Embedded Networks across commercial or industrial developments.
Embedded Networks are electricity [energy] corridors owned & operated by an entity other than an electrical lines business or network operator,
We offer bespoke case studies to demonstrate the economic benefits for developers were they to:
Retain ownership/rights in localised generation, connection & distribution assets,
Engage 3rd party or manage by special purpose vehicle energy flow behind the meter,
Introduce automated smart contracts for trading internally or through network connection,
Our embedded networks can contain and integrate smart metering, energy storage, power generation, smart lighting, heating and ventilation systems, thermal storage and control & communications systems.
Traditional Models & Infrastructure
Grid Share Limited proposes there are challenges with traditional models and infrastructure that may be irreversible, this is due to;
Technology is outpacing our implementation capabilities
The outcome of individual actions will be stranded assets & grid desertion
The arrival of the “Prosumer” with the ability to bypass traditional points of sale
Prosumers are able to interact directly with investors through electronic mediums
New pricing & trading methods are emerging but lack flexible or open infrastructure
The outcome will be stranded assets and grid desertion, resulting in a legacy where costs increase for those remaining centralised,
With the advent of easy access to social platforms the consumer who can now produce a product or perform a service is now highly motivated to trade at a peer to peer level and can circumnavigate the traditional revenue streams existing infrastructure owners rely on,
The motivation motioned above drives innovations in software development, coding, electronics and other systems to share, trade and monetize products or services,
Consumers that are directly engaged in some level of energy production or the provision of localised enabling infrastructure for energy production, can now influence buying habits or highlight more sustainable products and services to individuals and businesses.
New Technology & New Opportunity
Grid Share Limited uses a model [business, technical and economic] for developers to enable deployment of new technology and offer developers new opportunities, for example;
Embedded networks can create homogeneity and a monopoly for prosumers and investors, they can buffer any economic and operational issues with traditional networks,
Energy management can be decentralised and occur at the consumer level, embedded networks can evolve to manage a variety of energy or waste streams,
Embedded networks provide integration and facilitate other share based community business models,
Our embedded networks can advance and grow to manage a variety of energy products; both thermal and electrical, and could further evolve to encompass waste management and water conservation or treatment,
Our designs focus around the end user, the embedded network can support integrated business and commercial structures to adapt as new technology advances, like offsetting operations in high cost areas.
Implementing The Right Model
Grid Share integrates the “prosumer” with the network developer and investor.
With the power generation independent so is the network, this allows for unified prosumers for investors to uni-directionally market, for energy supply or exchange under equitable terms,
Grid Share incentivises participation in the model
By creating key benefits and a differentiator for property developers, owners and occupiers/consumers can create an enduring “beyond the meter” cooperative energy cost saving/revenue stream
Provide a superior trading and exchange platform
As internally the revenue is gained from managing electricity flow behind the meter and receiving a fee for distributing for a group of connected stakeholders, external flow can be traded under a variety of instruments,
Offers superior network insight and data analysis
By being able to implement micro grids with greater energy management capability it allows for data sets at an equipment level; this may be an example of a future benefit if there were subsidies or different tariffs implemented on product types, i.e. bit currency mining or specific medical research equipment.
Delivers Key Benefits
The control and security of supply is syndicated by the special purpose vehicle and its stakeholders i.e. the developer, the investor and the prosumer,
It offers a lower net cost of energy consumed when offsetting value of shared/traded units,
The approach provides stakeholders with maximum energy supply flexibility and operates as a natural hedge against electricity pricing and other negative market influences,
The network can introduce its own metrics for regulation [i.e. key performance indicators for users] to lower cost of energy delivered or enhance the revenue streams arising from energy trading and flow,
The special purpose vehicle self funds any expansions or optimisation of the network,
Shift in energy expenditure from opex to capex (or P&L to Balance Sheet) may also give rise to other accounting benefits for stakeholders dependent on there business finance structures
