Kickstarter Campaign – Suspended, Upcoming Lessons Learned
My initial Kickstarter Campaign ran till near the end of June, when I suspended it. I was looking to raise $40,000 to finance a prototype platform to set us up for an initial market test. I learned a lot from the campaign and I’ll capture my Lessons Learned in a post on LinkedIn and here on the website, sometime in late June/early July.
We decided on a crowdfunding to get potential users involved as soon as possible. We’re an open book and we view this as a global community project. We need tools to accelerate our adaptation to climate change and help us decarbonize.
Development plans will continue in other directions. Please let me know what you think – Link on LinkedIn /prsenl or Follow me on Twitter @prsenl.
Prsenl welcomes you to Power to the People, a blog and resource website about personal energy innovation from the perspective of the energy consumer maturing into an innovative prosumer.
What is Personal Energy?
Definition: Personal Energy is a new market category for electricity driven by the introduction of innovative clean energy technologies & business models and defined from the energy consumer’s perspective, reflecting increasing independence from utility and grid connectivity and more complex needs and value perceptions.
Why Now? What has changed?
Personal Energy emerges when the rising understanding of climate change raises the consumer consciousness regarding fossil fuel limits and decarbonization and the readiness of clean energy alternatives like solar power, electric vehicles, LEDs and smart thermostats. Markets emerge when need meets opportunity, when technology is ready and new business models are introduced.
