A surfacing trend as of late is peer-to-peer energy sharing. Simply put, energy sharing is when one party has excess energy that they can share with another party. Energy sharing is often referred to as Virtual Net Metering (VNM) or peer-to-peer (P2P) energy sharing. (Albert, 2018)
Technologies invented to promote this culture of energy sharing are only a handful. Among these inventions is Anzene – a battery/ energy block for your e-mobilities that runs on sustainable energy. On top of being affordable, environment-friendly, and economically beneficial, Anzene has a feature that allows users to share energy with their peers. (Long, et. al., 2018)
This battery, energy block is equipped with the necessary wires that allow for other e-bike users to take the same energy from it. Think of it as having a power bank for your e-bikes. In which, friends could use the power bank if they had the proper connectors. But this technology is not just for small-scale energy trading, it allows for a much higher scale. (Anzene, n.d. & rodski, n.d.)
Think of it as sharing files among your peers from the internet, or renting out an apartment with a friend. In the same way, you are providing energy for yourself and a second person, presumably a friend or a peer. (Albert, 2018)
But what good does it do? What’s the benefit that peer-to-peer energy sharing will give you? How is it any different from the usual seller-consumer relationship? (Francisco, 2019)
The traditional seller-consumer relationship is vertical in orientation. In which, an established hierarchy is formed in terms of handling the goods. However, with the peer-to-peer energy sharing fully enabled, this removes the vertical hierarchy and transforms it into a horizontal one – one, in which, the consumer holds an equal ground as the provider of the goods. (Albert, 2018)
This opportunity to ‘share’ energy by using the Anzene battery block can be upgraded into an idea of more ambition. In which, when the Anzene battery block has excess energy – more than what the consumer needs – he can sell this excess energy to those who are in need. For example, if a friend runs out of energy while on the road, a person who owns Anzene can lend the energy to the one who has run out of it. (Francisco, 2019)
In the grander scale of things, in the future, this would decentralize the power from big companies, and provide an easier and more accessible means of accessing energy for everyone. (Francisco, 2019)
This is why Anzene is invented – to provide affordable, environment-friendly, and economically-beneficial energy to consumers, all the while making sure that there is electrical security for us in the future.
Anzene, powering up your future.
