About

Did you know that 78% of the greenhouse gas emissions is caused by the energy sector? (source Eurostat and European environmental agency) That makes the ENERGY sector THE HIGHEST POLLUTING SECTOR of them all, but it is also the biggest area where we can make a HUGE impact in.

And That's WHY we created Energy Shift. 

We are building a web platform where individuals or companies can invest into renewable energy projects, gain a hefty return on investment (+10%) and do good for the environment. 

We built an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to test the market, see if people would be willing to invest into renewable energy projects, and it turns out that THEY DO! Through this landing page you can see in the preview, we gathered dozens of people who expressed interest into investing into renewable energy. And now we need YOU to help us fund the final platform that will actually enable them to invest.(Check the bottom of the page to see previews of how the platform will look like with your help!)

Our Minimum Viable Product(MVP) that we used to test the market
Our Minimum Viable Product(MVP) that we used to test the market

Our main mission is to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy by lowering entry barriers for investment into renewables, while generating attractive financial returns to our customers.

Our business model is to take small sums of money from a large number of investors/individuals that will be invested into renewable energy projects across the globe, providing clean energy for people, and a huge financial return for investors in the renewables. 

We have created this win-win situation where small sums of money from large number of people can help us to get to a safe and clean environment faster than the concentrated system.  


MARKET

Our market is the renewable energy production market. Last year, $333 billion were invested into renewable energy power plants. The renewable energy market is expected to rise by 400% by 2040 (source: British Petroleum). In addition to this, there are several international agreements that are also contributing to this growth of the renewable energy market, such as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by United Nations (UN), the EU legislation Europe 2020 and similar.

The important thing to mention here is that renewable energy power plants can last up to 25 years, though a lot of experts say it can be up to 50 years. That means a whole lot of impact being made throughout the years.

WHY NOW?

Even though a lot of companies have pledged to be zero carbon by 2030, still a very small amount of energy is produced from renewable sources. Most of the experts and reports from the UN and other institutions claim that countries lack of money to transfer to zero carbon economy. On the other hand, returns on bank savings are around 1% and people are basically losing money with inflation. Energy Shift is solving both problems, hard working people are receiving a hefty return on their investments while doing good, and renewable energy projects and countries are getting funds they need thus accelerating the transition to renewables.


WHAT HAVE WE DONE SO FAR?

 So far we have created an MVP of our platform, to test the user experience and to improve it before releasing the final product. Also, you cannot invest into a project yet, because we don't have the agreements for investors, privacy policy, terms and conditions, but you can only leave your email to show your interest.


WERE ARE WE NOW AND HOW WILL WE USE THE GATHERED MONEY?

Now, we are working on the final version of our website, and you can see a preview of how it will look like with YOUR help! We will use the gathered money to finish building the final version of our platform, pay lawyers for legal documents to ensure that our backers/users in the future are well secured and protected. 

Also, we will use a portion of the money to pay for government licenses on our pilot project, where we intend to set up solar panels on a roof of a centre for abandoned children in Croatia. 

P.S. if you have any suggestions or comments on the design or any aspect of the project, we would love to hear it.

Risks and challenges

Since we are investing in renewable energy, we will insure the renewable energy power plants (solar panels, inverters, etc.) from any harm, such as a natural disaster or a human intervention. Also, insurance is taken to prevent sudden legal changes, which will enable us to guarantee pay out to our investors. Also, we will have a challenge of reaching out to many people who would like to save money or invest it in a renewable energy project. But that's where you can help as well by sharing our campaign on social media and talking about it with your friends <3.
We are not aware of any other legal risk or challenges.
