PEER-2-PEER-ENERGY: THE CONCEPT OF THE FUTURE
What is Change38?
With the unique Peer-2-Peer-Concept you decide where you want to recieve your energy from. With the Access-Kit and the free Change38-App you can always see where you are getting your renewable energy from. Your power supplier gets a reward for that, which is better than if he would have to sell his energy to the electricity company. Win-Win-Win for you, your supplier and the environment.

FACILITY IN A SINGLE-FAMILY HOME
Family Gysin, Schönenbuch
When planning and implementing the continuous renovation of our property (built in 1971), we have recently begun placing our focus on reducing our energy consumption. We began by insulating the entire building envelope (including against the cold areas toward the bottom and the top). We replaced the oil heating system with the most modern air and water heat pump available. In 2014 we put a photovoltaic system with high-performance modules into operation. This system produces about 10MW per year. With this step, we have met our energy requirements for electricity (the house + e-vehicle), hot water, and heating. We have reached our personal goal of “an energy revolution” at a family level.
We would like to raise awareness and encourage other people to embark on a climate friendly path. In addition, we want to share the surplus energy produced by our system with like-minded people rather than just feed it into storage within the network.
Water laboratory, Basel
Since 1999 employees at the IWB have made sure that Basel has had qualitatively safe drinking water. This is done at the IWB water laboratory where water samples are tested and analyzed for microbes. The lab doesn’t just make sure the water is drinkable, it also provides green electricity. Since 2013 a photovoltaic facility has been in operation and provides 10 average Basel households with electricity.
Founded in 1874, the Basel Zoo is not only the oldest Swiss zoo, but also by far the zoo with the most animals. Visitors can marvel at about 7,000 of them from different species housed on 13 hectares of land.
While the Basel Zoo provides a home for so many animals, it also provides many of Basel’s residents with green electricity. The photovoltaic system on the roof of the administration building provides enough power for two average households.
