What is the Emergent transactional platform?

The Emergent Transactional platform is a system of control that balances supply and demand across the entire energy system, using price as the key operational mechanism. It is built on an integration of software with patented Faraday Grid technology. This unique combination of hardware and software creates a system allowing any device or person, with the right technical support, to trade energy with other parties. The Emergent transactional platform:

  • Is multi-functional and extremely agile, a platform designed to manage electricity generated from any location and from multiple different generation sources, and delivered to where it is needed
  • Enables the network to cope with high and low demand periods by using pricing that alters in line with demand, similar to the way pricing works, for example, in foreign exchange, vehicle fuel, and grocery
  • Minimizes the cost of energy by making the lowest cost energy available to consumers at all times, reducing transactional overheads and the need for other behavioural incentives
  • Is integrated, autonomous & responsive – which means it is a complete system and does not have to rely on additional infrastructure or software to provide accounting or send messages between control points
  • Is adaptive and self-contained – which means each device or person participating can act individually and is not reliant on a structured system

The Faraday Grid technology underpinning the platform allows greater amounts of renewable generation to be used by removing some of the most significant electrical constraints within the grid. The net effect of the Emergent Transactional platform is the delivery of reliable clean energy at the lowest possible price to consumers

How does the Emergent transactional network work?

The Emergent transactional network is an integrated software platform operating on patented Faraday Grid technology. It combines multiple Faraday Exchangers to improve power flow efficiency with the Emergent transactional layer facilitating energy exchanges at market based real time pricing.

  • Every device or agent within the Emergent transactional platform will balance its individual account
  • A fit for purpose, secured system allows transactions to be trusted between devices or agents, and be verified by other trusted devices or agents without the need to verify each transaction
  • Transactions are inherently linked to the physics of the system taking into account generation and consumption type, quality and location
