This time, Wozniak focuses on the field of green technology and blockchain. In fact, Efforce has been running quietly for almost a year. This is a platform that helps business owners or industrial construction companies benefit from the energy savings from energy efficient projects around the world.
According to Efforce, investors can participate in energy efficiency projects and benefit from those improvements for free. Using blockchain, ” a smart contract redistributes the savings to them based on accurate consumption / savings data .”
Wozniak shares about the new company: ” Increasing energy consumption and CO2 emissions worldwide have led to climate change with serious environmental consequences. We can do it. improving our ‘carbon footprint’ as well as reducing energy consumption without changing habits We can save the environment simply by making more energy improvements.
It is the first decentralized platform that allows people to participate and benefit financially from energy efficiency projects around the world. Together, they will make a meaningful environmental change .
Jacopo Visetti, project lead and co-founder of Efforce said: ” In such challenging times, many small companies are struggling to survive. They don’t have the ability to streamline production processes. or simply implementing insulation measures, Efforce can save them money in the long run.
The company allows business owners to securely register for energy upgrades on the web while securing funding from all investors worldwide. They will then have more cash available to use for more important projects like infrastructure or hiring more talent . ”
Efforce says its goal is to make the market for $ 250 billion worth of energy-saving projects more accessible, just like Apple helps expand access to PCs.
Efforce created a cryptocurrency called “WOZX” (named after Wozniak). Investors can buy and use to purchase energy-saving projects of energy services companies operating on the Efforce platform.
The company then tracks the energy savings achieved by the projects above and returns them to the investor in a “credit” form of energy that can be used or sold.
With Efforce, Wozniak will once again change the world, just as the first company he co-founded has changed the world of technology, said an analyst. At the moment, Apple has a market capitalization of more than $ 2 trillion and is one of the leading tech giants in the world.
