Introduction

Sustainability – from the socket

The social trend to consume more sustainably and to trace the origin of the products consumed has increased particularly in recent years. This applies in particular to the purchase of electricity. Since the use of fossil fuels contributes significantly to the release of greenhouse gases and thus to global warming, the demand for electricity generated from renewable energies is increasing. In this context, a regional electricity provider intends to develop a B2C Smart Energy solution to serve this target group and to open up a new source of revenue. In this context, it is planned to position an independent company that will be built up and scaled independently from the parent company.
