Everyone knows that Oil won’t last forever, they just don’t make dinosaurs like they used to. Ever since the first internal combustion engine came out in 1859 (158yrs ago) we haven’t seen a new engine that is able to replace it. Let us look at coal and nuclear power. Coal power plant produce tons of CO2 that cause lots of health problems and is very bad for the environment. As for nuclear power, it could be cheap to operate one now but how much does it cost to store all those nuclear waste for 300yrs?
For the next 3 years, Infinite Mechanics have this idea to stop global warming by creating a zero carbon emission power source to replace all combustion engine, coal and nuclear power plant. This would cut world carbon emission by more than 80% in 10yrs. Lately we had a breakthrough.

If you’re interested to invest, I will be happy to present the whole science behind this technology that I have developed to you. Bytheway, this is not those perpetual motion or free energy you see on youtube that could not even power a small electrical appliance.
POSITIVE ENERGY LTD.
Renewable Energies cheaper than coal, nuclear and fossil fuels. They are also highly scalable. This leads to a wave of privately funded, small- to medium sized (0.5 - 30 MW) projects, a $40 bln market in Asia alone.
Our digital platform simplifies renewable energy investments. We support developers of distributed, small-to midsize projects (1 to 50 mln USD).
These projects are attractive (>15% IRR) but are difficult to finance; investors and developers work together in old-fashioned ways with paper or endless emails at best, bringing in teams of external advisors. For these small projects the costs are too high.
Our blockchain-based platform simplifies the financing of these small- to midsize projects. It offers listing and matchmaking between investors and project developers. The platform has a workflow/dataroom system with standardised due diligence and third party verification service
We get great traction with various projects and ~200 mln USD commercial contracts, NDAs with institutional investors, and we recently won the Schneider Electric Bold Idea Challenge 1st price over 140 startups.

Envelio is a spin-off from RWTH Aachen University that develops software for the digital transformation of energy grids. The energy transition requires smart and more flexible grids to integrate millions of renewable energy resources and new loads such as charging points for electric vehicles into the system. However, distribution grid operators’ IT systems and processes are not ready for this challenge. They are dominated by inefficient and inconsistent data management and many manual process steps. envelio provides the software as a service solution Intelligent Grid Platform (IGP) to make grid operators ready for the future. By digitizing and automating essential grid planning and operation processes, the IGP is a key component for the implementation of smart grids and the integration of distributed generation and new loads into the energy system. The IGP is based on 5 PhD theses of the founders providing scalable optimization and machine learning algorithms, specifically tailored to the energy system. The IGP is already being used at various European distribution grid operators including i.a. Iberdrola S.E., one of the biggest utilities in Europe and Westnetz GmbH, the biggest German distribution grid operator.

Indonesia stands above the so-called ring of fire where a natural disaster occurs more frequently among other areas. There are more than a thousand natural disasters annually in Indonesia killing thousands of life and damaging infrastructure cost no less than a million dollars. The disaster crippled local electrical infrastructures when the electricity was needed the most. The existing solution such as diesel generator set is not effectively operating due to the scarcity of fuel. Even when the fuel exists, the priority will be given into the transportation sector. We intend to introduce a portable off-grid solar energy and package it for heavy condition likes disaster areas. The electricity is critical for activities like medical, communication, search and rescue, and lighting. Solargency, solar energy for an emergency, was created to address these problems. We are eager to build disaster-resilient energy infrastructure, especially places where disasters often occur.
The concept of Smart City today is mainly focused on innovations in the technology of electronic equipment, forgetting the importance of the infrastructure networks that support all these, due to the lack of integrated management and the ordering of these networks in the underground, causing billionaires losses every year.
INFRAVIA system was created with answers to the demands above and represents the Next Generation Infrastructure and Sustainable Mobility for Smart Cities, ordering Natural Gas, Electricity, Water, Telecom and Electric Car Charger, inside a structure made by recycled plastic from urban waste under the sidewalk. Sewer is installed under the bike lane, with green infrastructure for rainwater collecting and filtering. The system provides a new way of thinking about urban design, especially sidewalks and bike lane, incorporating a joint project strategy with urban infrastructures, adding new forms of funding and gains in the joint implementation and management of the systems.
INFRAVIA system presented an average reduction of 30% in the facilities construction and 70% in operation, demonstrated through the implementation and testing in a real-scale pilot project inside a technology park during 2016/2017, and now is being launched a large-scale deployment phase, starting in the Foz do Iguaçu city, Brazil.

We are a team of visionary engineers that see a part that we can play for a better future we all share. The biggest problems of the world, including climate change, energy, waste and poverty. We asked ourselves 2 questions, is there a disruption solution weaving through these problems, and how can we allocate the responsibility of climate change to individuals, who often feel helpless beside bigger-than-life issues? Well, we believe our work can answer them. Introducing Pyropower, decentralised, plug and play, electrical generator that takes in organic waste as fuel. Unlike wind and solar, our solution is carbon negative, which means we capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. How? Biochar the main byproduct of our pyrolytic process. Biochar is a type of charcoal produced from organic matter and stored in the soil as a means of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It is a natural soil conditioner that is able to restore degraded agricultural land, increasing food security. What makes is unique about our work is that it we see a circular economy forming right in front of our eyes. A farmer’s agricultural waste goes into the generator, producing biochar which then goes back into the soil, enhancing crop yield, and again the waste goes back into the generator.As more generators are deployed around the world we collect biomass characterization data which will enable us to optimize the network of generators and open more markets, unleashing the full potential of bioenergy.
