XTN – The Creator of the Low Carbon Society

XTN is a Game Changer in the Energy Industry since:

- XTN is an “Automatic Purchasing Machine for Consumers” of electricity, gas and heat with producers as co-owners, where   consumer can choose a mix of energy forms which fits consumer’s individual values and where the price premiums from consumer values are transferred to the producing co-owners providing an extra margin.

- XTN is a Demand Side Management System balancing Demand/Response by utilizing the three energy forms under one umbrella: electricity, gas and heat.

- XTN is a Demand Side Management system as decided by the EU Commision 5. november 2013

- XTN complies with the EU Commissions 3. energy package unbundling Distribution from Production

- XTN complies with the EU Commisions recommendation of 22. january 2014 to the European Parliament.

leading to the low carbon society

XTN is not a company providing IT services to outside customers rather it is an energy company itself with 3-5 energy producers as co-owners with the right mix of energy forms which will be benefitting from the system “Energy a la Carte at Household Site”

 

 

THE MISSING LINK BETWEEN PRODUCER AND PROSUMER – Energy

New energy streams in the world – Driving forces

When driving forces are changing in an industry so must the operators in the industry change.

In the energy industry the driving forces are so heavy causing changes only the Americans can formulate: “Game changer – Disrupt the energy industry and drive it into the new paradigm”.

So, what driving forces are we seeing in the energy industry today creating new energy streams in the world?

-          The energy industry consists of separate markets creating analog demand/response challenges within each of the markets

-          Shale gas is becoming in abundant supply first in the US then later in Europe to an extent that the US will be self sufficient of energy going into an export position (LNG) lowering the prices in the current European gas market.

-          The Nordic region, one of the heaviest producing regions of clean energy is going into a surplus position with sharply dropping prices due to green certificates that stimulates new renewables on top of existing renewables and not enough cables for exporting to the European continent ie.”locked in energy”.

-          Consumers are being angry due to high prices caused by duties and not having a choice of energy form. Introducing capacity markets which will sharply increase consumer prices will even further backfire on inabel governments. Demand/Response must be taken care of by a system that do not cause even higher prices. Governments that do not see this will face problems in the next election.

-          Consumers are being more and more concerned with climate change - environmental changes and global warming and the inability of governments to do something about it, especially when consumers cannot go out of their appartements due to health hazards

Regulation/Directives

So, what are the solution to all this? That is to exploit the EU Commisions decisions: (1) 3.energy pack to unbundle distribution from production; (2) the decision of 5. November 2013 to solve the Demand/Response with Demand Side Management; (3) the proposal to the EU Parliament to let the market solve the challenges. All based on EUs 4 liberties.

Solution

This exploitation leads to the natural solution to manage the Demand/Response challenge by looking at all energy markets – electricity, gas, heat – under the same umbrella and to empower the consumers to manage the system by price at their door step – to give the consumers a choice of energy form – ie Balancing Demand / Response with Multiple Energy Forms at Household Site

The missing link

Hence, we are facing the need for: A missing link between Producer and Prosumer where the Prosumer both consumes different forms of energy at their doorstep at their choice commensurate with their values as well as producing different forms of energy commensurate with their values. The key here is “values” not “price”.

XTN Group is such a Missing link between Producer and Prosumer with its ready to go Demand Side Management system “Energy a la Carte at Household Site” after 7 years of Development.  www.xtngroup.com
