Sustainable Energy Models and Solutions

Our mission is to accelerate energy transition by enabling value co-creation and partnerships for sustainable energy development

Intellsol
Intellsol is a Swiss company founded in 2021 by seasoned professionals and EMBA candidates at IMD who have developed an innovative energy transition model to effectively deploy PV residential technology. The new model is called Energy Transition Accelerator Model (ETAM).

  • Intellsol has validated the technical and economic hypothesis of the ETAM model with industry experts.
  • The ETAM model enables Swiss corporations to achieve their sustainable development goals (SDG).
  • Intellsol has unique access to sustainable financing alternatives to mobilize private capital from impact investors, such as BNP Paribas and Climate venture capital firms.
  • Intellsol’s founders have more than 10 years’ experience in the renewable energy industry and developing, building, and managing large scale projects worldwide.
Model
ETAM is a model designed to accelerate the implementation and deployment of distributed energy photovoltaic residential technology at scale. The core of the idea is to promote an efficient model to generate SURPLUS electricity from households and commercial roofs.
Clean energy
ETAM enables clean energy production while creating economic, societal, and financial benefits for all participants in the ecosystem. The implementation of the ETAM model co-creates value among all its participants and addresses various SGDs.
Corporations
ETAM addresses the clean energy and climate change thematic priorities.

New solution
ETAM provides a new solution to address the barriers and constraints for deploying PV residential technologies.
Based on the ecosystem business model where value is co-created, ETAM provides a solution by addressing existing barriers as follows:
Economic Drivers
High upfront investments costs and low electricity prices have an adverse effect on the household’s decision to install PV. This is because the investment is not financially attractive when the value of the electricity produced is marginal compared to upfront costs and self-consumption. ETAM eradicates this barrier from household owners because upfront costs and the PV rooftop system investment is 100% financed by the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) created under the ETAM model to mobilize private capital.

Behavioral Drivers
Environmental awareness, knowledge about the technology and the “cool” factor (or influence from the social network) are drivers that can accelerate penetration. Therefore, low awareness and low knowledge of the small-scale solar PV system technology can be a major barrier in its adoption.
ETAM eradicates this barrier from household owners by partnering directly with utilities, creating a solid and trusted offering through the existing customer communication channels, and unlocking new channels (digital campaigns, face-to-face interactions by representatives). At the same time, having an attractive value proposition among existing utility customers have an exponential network and visual effect to accelerate adoption at scale.

Technology Drivers
Lack of education and trust in technology from a manufacturer’s perspective can be a major barrier for PV adoption, while lower costs of PV technology and storage can result in an increased number of adopters.

ETAM addresses the technology trust barrier by deploying only cutting-edge and certified PV residential technology from qualified local or international suppliers (economics of scale) to satisfy demand. ETAM is flexible enough to provide a range of solutions to better adapt to the different rooftops and customer needs and aesthetics preferences.

Country Drivers
Foreign exchange exposure and country risk negatively impact mobilizing private capital to emerging economies like Ghana. In addition, challenging conditions of the electricity grid may limit the implementation of energy-efficient systems. Lack of qualified and educated human resources to install and maintain PV residential systems can limit PV adoption in Ghana.

ETAM removes this barrier because it seeks to monetize its PV residential projects by pricings RECs or carbon certificates based on value delivered and in hard currency, moving away from subsidies and allowing acceleration and scalability. RECs and carbon certificates are sold to corporate buyers in the industrialized world, thus removing foreign exchange fluctuations and country risk. ETAM also promotes and facilitates local education and training in order to build expertise and qualified local manpower.
