Teaser of the Company

We want to be the small-great company capable of taking energy to the next level. That’s why we strive to promote advances within our own sector and always think of the user as the centre of everything we do. We are a local, family-owned company with a global spirit. We are a company that is honest, close, collaborative and where companionship is in everything.

  • User-centric in everything we do
  • Promotion of developments within the sector
  • Innovation as a fundamental part of our business model
  • Understanding energy beyond its traditional use

Cuerva has tested, validated and adopted Comunitaria’s blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:

Comunitaria

Rooftop that Feeds

Why has the company decided to implement the solution:Leveraging our experience in the energy sector and our knowledge of blockchain technology, we thought we could help in the creation of a sustainable self-consumption energy community where we can provide our services.

Added value of the solution to the company: Our collaboration in this solution goes beyond our economic benefit, as we also think about the value and image that it gives our company to participate in a project with great social impact as Comunitaria. Offering our services in something that will help many people and that will have a positive social and environmental impact in a underpriviledged neighborhood is very satisfying.

What has been done during BlockStart’s pilot stage:During the pilot stage, we have reached an agreement with Comunitaria that we provide an energy measuring device that will allow us to measure the energy produced, consumed and sold.
