Lition signs a Co-innovation Agreement with SAP.
Lition signs a Co-innovation Agreement with SAP. The technology partners are exploring the development of a public-private blockchain for business in mass markets. BERLIN, Germany, Dec. 17th 2018 - Lition, the blockchain tech start-up known for the world's first blockchain based P2P energy exchange in a mass market and SAP SE, the market leader for enterprise application software, have signed a co-innovation agreement to address current shortfalls of distributed ledger technology (DLT). The technology partnership was first announced at the Consensus Conference in New York City in May 2018 by Torsten Zube, Head of Blockchain at SAP. Blockchain experts know the limitations of current-generation blockchain technologies, such as * the secure exchange of private data in distributed environments * scalability (block confirmation time and transaction costs) * compliance to regulatory requirements like deletion of data (GDPR compliance) hinder a mass market adoption of blockchain technology.

Blockchain: Gasag kooperiert mit Berliner Startup Lition
Das Startup-Unternehmen Lition GmbH hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, Konsumenten und Erzeuger auf direktem Weg über eine eigens entwickelte Energiebörse zu verbinden. Die digitale Plattform basiert auf der Blockchain-Technologie und ist seit Mai 2018 auf dem Markt. Gestartet ist die Plattform unter anderem mit Erneuerbare-Energien-Anlagen der Gasag. Die Kooperation der beiden Unternehmen beschränkt sich jedoch nicht auf die Energieerzeugung.

GASAG kooperiert mit LITION
Der Netzbetreiber, Energiedienstleister und -erzeuger GASAG und das Berliner Start-up LITION haben ein gemeinsames Blockchain-Projekt realisiert. LITIONs 2018 gestartete Energiebörse kooperiert nun mit nachhaltigen Erzeugungseinheiten der GASAG und zusätzlich auch bei Abrechnung und Service mit der GASAG-Gruppe. Die digitale Plattform basiert auf einer hybriden Blockchain. Kunden sparen, Erzeuger gewinnen „Durch unsere Technologie können sich Kunden einen Erzeuger ihrer Wahl aussuchen“, berichtet Dr. Richard Lohwasser, Geschäftsführer und Gründer von LITION. Kunden und Erzeuger werden durch die Blockchain-Technik ausgesprochen direkt miteinander vernetzt, sodass sie nicht nur die Quelle ihres Stroms selbst bestimmen können, sondern sogar täglich ein neues Angebot von einem anderen Erzeuger auswählen oder aber LITION beauftragen können, jeden Tag ihren Strom von der günstigsten Anlage zu beziehen. Der Einsatz der hybriden Blockchain stellt dabei bei jeder Transaktion sicher, dass diese privat ist und dennoch durch einen unveränderlichen Datensatz im öffentlichen Zustand der Blockchain verifizierbar – heißt durch das Netzwerk zu genehmigen – ist. Der Strombeitrag fließt über die monatliche Rechnung ohne Umwege an das ausgewählte Kraftwerk. Am Ende sparen Kunden und Erzeuger wie Solar,- Wasser und Windkraftwerke erhalten mehr Geld. „Wir freuen uns, dass wir eine sehr fruchtbare Kooperation mit LITION haben und neben Unterstützungsfunktionen im Service und nachhaltigen Erzeugungsbereich auch sehr viel von dem Berliner Start-up lernen“, kommentiert GASAG-Vorstandsmitglied Matthias Trunk.

Lition Blockchain Envisions Smart Cities and the Green Energy Revolution
Cities across the globe team up with corporations such as Panasonic, Google, and start-ups like Lition to co-develop Smart City solutions. A smart city offers two-way communications via IoT sensors and AI technology to link buildings, streets, sidewalks, and other components of an urban center, and uses the collected data to address the needs of citizens and visitors. A smart ecosystem connects all layers of a city, from the air on the street to underground sewage and water services.
Environmental sustainability and energy efficiency is one of the critical aspects of smart city innovation. In Europe, for example, the European Technology Platform (ETP) Smart Grids initiative directs vision and strategy for European green energy delivery via smart electricity networks. They aim to create an electrical infrastructure that can sustain economic growth, integrate renewable energy sources and reduce urban environmental impact. A smart grid’s two-way communication capability between a utility and its customers will allow the former to adjust precisely for consumer demand.

Lition veux révolutionner le secteur de l’énergie grâce à un système Blockchain pour l’échange d’énergie

Le concept de Lition : connecter l’énergie verte et les consommateurs

Le Lition Energy Exchange apporte transparence et durabilité dans le système énergétique actuellement fermé en connectant directement les producteurs d’énergie verte aux consommateurs intelligents. Grâce à la nouvelle technologie Blockchain de Lition, les producteurs d’énergie bénéficieront d’un rendement supérieur de 30 %, tandis que les consommateurs paieront 20 % moins cher. Lition rend cela possible en supprimant des intermédiaires et en mettant en place des structures d’entreprise allégées et des processus efficaces. En mars, le fournisseur d’énergie basé à Berlin a reçu des licences d’énergie difficiles à obtenir et a déjà construit une importante base de clients couvrant 11 villes allemandes.

리션 “그린 에너지 부문 블록체인 혁신 주도”
독일 그린 에너지 블록체인 거래 플랫폼인 '리션(Lition)'이 주목받고 있다. 소비자는 리션 플랫폼에서 전력 공급자와 가격을 선택해 그린 에너지 생산자와 직접 거래할 수 있다. 블록체인 기술 특성인 '스마트 컨트랙트' 기술을 활용, 제3자 중개인이 필요 없다. 21일 리션 CEO 리하르트 로바서(Richard Lohwasser) 박사는 “현재는 에너지 공급 시스템이 효율성과 가격 경쟁력이 낮고, 또 소비자들은 공식 전력 시스템에서 공급하는 에너지에 대해 잘 모르고 구매한다”며 “뿐만아니라 전력 공급 시스템이 너무 복잡하고 불투명해 소비자들이 에너지원을 정확히 파악할 수 없다. 석탄 에너지조차 ‘그린’이라는 명칭을 달고 비싼 가격에 팔리는 실정이다"며 '리션' 플랫폼의 필요성을 설명했다.

When It Comes to Green Energy’s Blockchain Revolution, Lition Is Ahead of the Pack
Among the vanguard companies leading the change towards a decentralized green energy blockchain system is Germany’s Lition which is working with global technology giant SAP on its blockchain solution. Their platform was developed to connect consumers directly with green energy producers and give them more choice over where their energy comes from and how much they pay for it. Because Lition is built on blockchain technology it makes the process of buying energy directly from producers much easier, since transparent smart contracts eliminate the need for third-party brokers.
