Hive Power Garners Swiss Government Partnership Prior to ICO launch
The team at Hive power is proud of the impact that the Hive Token (HVT) is poised to have on revolutionizing the energy industry and pushing sustainability forward. We’re even more proud of governments that are equally committed to bringing forth this change, and that is one of the many reasons we were so thrilled to become a partner of the government created SCCER-FURIES. This is yet another step of our continued effort to participate across government, academic, and corporate research endeavors to bring our knowledge and expertise to the forefront.
That said, we have gotten a lot of questions from our worldwide community as to what this means and why it is so exciting for our cryptocurrency project, so let’s get into the nitty gritty.
SCCER-FURRIES stands for the Swiss Competence Centers for Energy Research focused on Future Swiss Electrical Infrastructures. These centers are mandated to develop, promote, and deploy power grid-related innovative solutions toward the implementation of the Swiss Energy Strategy 2050, which set lofty goals aiming to promote renewable energies, improve energy efficiency and prohibit the construction of new nuclear power plants.
That’s a lot of words to say the Swiss are certainly one of the country’s leading the way in energy innovation and sustainability. In fact, SCCER-FURIES is one of 8 different SCCER divisions created to address the power grid-related challenges raised by the ES2050. It is comprised of over 250 power grid experts across 34 labs and over 50 corporate partners. SCCER-FURIES also provides its partners with seed-funds required for the development of their activities.
What Does this mean for Hive Power?:
The partnership will allow Hive Power to build on previous collaborations and fully participate in the transfer of knowledge, resources and technology between Academia and the marketplace brought by the SCCER-FURIES program. For us, we view it as an honor as well and a mark of distinction for those exploring our project. Across research organizations and corporate partners, we will help provide and be provided with needed resources. While Hive Power aims to innovate energy use all across Europe and the world, the first market to receive HivePower will in fact be Switzerland, and an official partnership with SCCERs is certainly a remarkable first step.
Why is this exciting for our community?
Our team is committed to solving a problem within the current energy infrastructure in a way that brings value to individuals, neighborhoods, corporations and even governments. While many Blockchain based projects have had their basis in a great idea, our great idea is backed by intensive research and talent and an entire academic community that believe in us and looking to provide support. In other words, the SCCER-FURIES partnership does more than just prove our merit, it helps to provide a world of access to support that we will embrace to better serve the community that believes in us. While others talk the talk, we’ve been walking the walk and now with this partnership will be running!
