The world is changing! We are living in a transitional period, during which ordinary consumers of electricity are evolving into producers. They become Prosumers: people who consume energy they produce themselves, using renewable sources. At the same time, they can utilize modern storage media to store the excess green energy they produce, in order to be consumed whenever needed, or to be sold to the grid. They participate in the electricity market as active members, interacting and exchanging energy with other grid users. By doing so, they turn into NetProsumers.
NetProsumers are environmentally aware, desire greater energy autonomy and independence, and pursue rational management of energy consumption. They embrace and promote technological developments and implement innovative energy solutions that arise through the digitization of technology, the application of Blockchain, and the development of the Internet of Things (IoT). NetProsumers network to produce, consume, store, manage, and exchange green energy through a “peer-to-peer” system. They participate in smart micro-grids and energy communities, aiming not only to become energy autonomous and independent, but also to acquire the opportunity to earn money from the sale of the electricity they produce and store.
Heeding the future, NetProsumers adopt e-mobility in order to drastically participate in the dissemination of sustainable mobility and to eliminate travel costs, charging their vehicles with self-produced free and clean energy. They use smart chargers and the V2G (Vehicle-to-Grid) functionality to draw excess energy from the battery of their electric vehicle in order to supply their homes or sell it to the grid for financial profit.
For NetProsumers, the world of electricity is inexhaustible and full of new opportunities!
Users of installations become energy autonomous when the total amount of energy they consume is self-produced. This requires a system that combines and utilizes RES technologies, electricity storage systems, and smart energy management devices. With an autonomy system, users acquire the possibility to store and consume the energy they produce themselves from RES units, while interconnected smart devices, smart sensors and smart meters help them to fully manage consumption (load selection, scheduling of appliance operation, etc.) and self-production (energy storage, injection into the grid, etc.), saving both energy and money.
Energy independence allows users (NetProsumers) to fully manage the energy they produce and consume, even when the connection to the electricity grid is lost. Installing appropriate equipment that allows the safe off-grid operation of the installation, NetProsumers use advanced energy management software that records their consumption, stores and processes the collected data, monitors their energy status in real time, and suitably manages their equipment in order to properly cover their energy needs, even remotely, no matter where they are and what time of the day is. The integrated Autonomy and Independence system ensures optimal distribution of the energy produced and stored, covering the energy needs of any installation.
In cooperation with the ONLY provider of 100% clean, green electricity, We Energy, every citizen, individual and entrepreneur, has the opportunity to implement the Aftonomo system in their home or business, through the WeAftonomo financing program. The program enables existing and new We Energy customers to secure the funding they need to begin with their energy independence and autonomy. Following the approval of the technical offer and the agreed financing scheme, the interested party will have significantly reduced his existing electricity bill while at the same time will have achieved his energy independence.
