9. ₳ € Component 4 → Microgrids

14. ₳ € Component 6 → Re-localized Valuechain Integrated Value chain

13. ₳ € Component 6 → Re-localization By installing a secure, stable and liquid local currency LeGrid enables more local production will, especially in rural regions, facilitate thriving communities

3. ₳ € Challenges ? ! ? How to finance climate change technology without adding trillions of new debt to the financial system? How to allow people with low income to optimize their energy needs?

15. ₳ € Component 7 → Distributed platform Applications Web Services Exchange & Finance Law & contracts Identities Governance Marketplace

17. ₳ € Final thoughts ● HUMAN 1: It’s too bad no one could come up with a plan to protect us from global climate change. ● HUMAN 2: Oh, they had a plan. They just couldn’t figure out how to pay for it.

8. ₳ € Component 4 → Microgrids A microgrid is a localized group of electricity sources and loads that normally operates connected to and synchronous with the traditional wide area synchronous grid (macrogrid), but can also disconnect to "island mode" — and function autonomously as physical or economic conditions dictate.

12. ₳ € Component 5 → Smart Market Grids LeGrid will go beyond credits backed by energy, first it should cover the value chains in the supply and installation of all the technology involved for renewable energy production. In a further step, WAT tokens can also be used to buy or sell other goods and services.

6. ₳ € Component 2 → Energy Loans ● Producer - sells energy forward and locks in price - interest-free energy loan until credit returned vs supply ● Consumer - prepays for energy and locks in price ● Investor - energy-linked return on investment

10. ₳ € Why Microgrids are important? ● Introducing a new currency is hard. National grid operators energy cartels and regulations are big hurdles to facilitate a fast adoption. ● It is essential to build closed supply chains around the energy grid and the WAT token.

11. ₳ € Component 5 → Smart Grids The smart grid allows for systematic communication between suppliers (their energy price) and consumers (their willingness-to-pay), and permits both the suppliers and the consumers to be more flexible and sophisticated in their operational strategies. SMartgrids → Smart Market Grids

7. ₳ € Component 3 → WAT Token ● WAT is - Returnable in payment for energy supply or other services - Issued by energy service (aka microgrid) provider, not banks ● WAT is not - Debt - no right to demand money - Derivative – no right to demand energy delivery - Equity – no ownership right in respect of energy assets ● WAT issuance, exchanged, cleared within the LeGrid Platform

16. ₳ € How to scale the network? LeGrid needs a global network of Agents to: – Spread the idea – Technical Support – Networking – Legal hacks – other

5. ₳ € Component 1 → Credit Obligation ● Credit returnable in payment for goods & services ● Issued by supplier in exchange for value received ● Issuer obligation is to accept credit if & when presented in payment for goods & services ● Rate of Return - rate over time at which credit returnable to issuer in payment for services ● Rate not fixed - depends on existence & amount of flow (source Chris Cook, Nordic Enterprise Trust)

4. ₳ € What components are required? ● Component 1 → Credit Obligation ● Component 2 → Energy Loans ● Component 3 → WAT Token ● Component 4 → Microgrids ● Component 5 → Smart (Market) Grids ● Component 6 → Re-localization ● Component 7 → A distributed platform

2. ₳ € We are running out of time! Investment required over the next 15 years in energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies to implement the national climate pledges (INDC) countries made before international climate negotiations held in Paris in December 2015. Investment required over the next 15 years in energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies consistent with limiting global temperature increase to 2°C.
