who we are
We are backbone.one
We believe in a fundamental disruption of the way we all will be dealing with renewable energy. We are aiming to shape a world, where DERs (distributed energy resources) like photovoltaics, battery storage, charging infrastructure, electric vehicles and others are connected on a central platform in order to democratize the access to renewable energy infrastructure and to make relevant user data and KPIs usable for the benefit of individuals and companies.
Develop the world’s first platform for new business models in the Internet of Energy.
The problem we solve
We develop and operate new business models for the Internet of Energy, creating the unique opportunity to affect green-energy-backed transactions. All this will significantly reduce fossil energy consumption, cause a massive drop in carbon emissions and foster new business opportunities in all industries and regions.
We strive towards renewable energy becoming a global currency (Energy-as-a-Currency, EaaC®) that is being generated by each private individual. We thus increase private purchase power and well-living, while at the same time offering everybody to contribute to global climate goals with every transaction being made.
Renablr® - Renewable energy for everyone
Our current product Renablr® enables companies such as retailers, banks and many others to become green energy providers for their employees and customers - very similar to an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) in the telecom sector, but in this case for renewable energy.
For this purpose, we bundle renewable energy (e.g. photovoltaic) from a company's own renewable infrastructure with the residual green electricity of a utility and ensure a company-branded, regional, sustainable and competitively priced energy tariff.
This is not only an exciting business model with substantial revenues, enhanced customer and employee relationships and sustainability KPIs, but a radical innovation.
Through us, companies are becoming real accelerators of the energy transition.
Based on our backbone.one platform, we, as the inventor and operator of this ecosystem, build joint business models with companies and offer them a turnkey solution, fully compliant with the EU regulatory framework, leading to attractive synergies with their core businesses as well as to high margins.
The Renablr® Ecosystem
Companies become energy providers of their employees & customers

We want to become the first global payment provider based on renewable energy.
