Teaser of the Company
Horizer aims to fragment and democratize the energy market by providing every person with the means to have clean, mobile energy accessible, shareable, and tradeable anywhere.
Companies with a vehicle fleet and vehicle owners use Horizer’s solar module and energy app to reduce fuel consumption, lower cost, and CO2 emissions.
Horizer has tested, validated and adopted HOPU’s blockchain-based solution in the scope of BlockStart:
Industrial emissions monitoring “Enabling trust and reliability of IoT-based continuous monitoring by integrating certification via blockchain and a Policy Based Framework”.
Why has the company decided to implement the solution: We recognize the opportunity to join BlockStart as a partner to develop a blockchain solution that can help grow solar mobility as a transparent energy-producing, sharing, monitoring and performance enhancer for our business with a partner experienced in blockchain development
Added value of the solution to the company: Blockchain for Solar Mobility. By the possibility to share the information and make the property available to someone for a certain period of time, blockchain would greatly enhance our solar mobility solutions. It would be possible to use a vehicle as an energy generator, pay directly for the energy that the users in the network of vehicles, and solve problems such as electromobility by using intelligent contracts through the blockchain. So the costs, the property, and the use of everything could be distributed on the blockchain. Especially in the complicated energy market, great progress could be achieved through the transparency and traceability of blockchain technology. This would make it easier for vehicle solar systems to charge, make energy tracking easier, facilitate asset management, and make it easier to issue certificates. This good regulation and transparent tracking should have a great influence on successful change, especially in the energy transition. Additionally, energy can be allocated to each vehicle individually, and then no matter where they charge or unload in the grid, for example, and thus facilitate billing.
What has been done during BlockStart’s pilot stage: The platform that the HOPU team has developed can monitor, in real-time, the values studied in detail such as energy, efficiency, power, average, normalised or voltage of the data provided by Horizer about the activity and gas emissions produced. On the one hand, the platform will recommend the user, depending on the consumption and emissions, the type of action according to the value obtained. On the other hand, the user will see the average values received to date and between specific dates to check the average consumption values obtained. Finally, this platform will provide the user with a graph that informs about the historical values mentioned above, able to be downloaded in .TXT, .CSV or .JSON format at any time, and select any point in the history to know its exact value

“BlockStart program was extremely rewarding for Horizer team— greatly structured Program with in advance prepared all the material, templates and easy to follow guides on how to; accommodating Meetings and sharing of knowledge and proved experience; and most of all the Network. Meetings with the BlockStart experts in blockchain and entrepreneurial network helped us see around corners and were invaluable in helping to drive our adoption of blockchain technology.”
Total funding received by Horizer UG (haftungsbeschränkt) under BlockStart: €4,500 (€1,500 for Ideation Kick-off and €3,000 for Pilot stage)
