IOTA’s areas of application are not only limited to cars, but include buildings, as shown by the Trondheim project of ENTRA (Norway).
At the end of August, ENRA ASA (a Norwegian real estate company managing 1.2 million square miles in 128 buildings, €228m profit in 2016) published the following news:
We are currently working to find the optimal solution for using all the pure energy that needs to be produced. (source)
This news is nothing unusual from them since they have built Norway’s first energy-positive office building called “Powerhouse Kjørbo” – as a renovated building it will produce more renewable energy than it consumes during its lifetime (apparently, it’s the first such renovated office building worldwide). Kjørbo is producing approximately 230,000 kWh per year – at construction stage 2, it will be 325,000 kWh per year which would be enough to power 30 American households for one year, or almost 100 German households.
The news which is relevant for IOTA is in the second sentence of the announcement:
Now we want to try the crypto technology to exchange energy gains with other nearby buildings.(source)
