The start-up

The need

Administrative rules and regulations for self-consumption in multi-apartment buildings complicate the implementation of rooftop PV systems considerably. They are a major obstacle to a widespread uptake of PV generated energy for onsite consumption.

The solution

Pionierkraft enables people to share self-generated renewable energy, which acts within and between multi-family homes and in smaller apartment buildings in an economical and operator-friendly manner. This fills the existing gap for economical PV solutions in smaller residential buildings. With its hardware and service-model, for the first time, battery storage can be used collaboratively and tenant power projects can be implemented economically.

Strategic Partners and Customers

  • Increases the proportion of energy consumed and produced locally.
  • More people gain access to affordable clean energy.
