Frenquently Asked Questions
Renewable gas is obtained from the local recovery of organic waste whereas natural gas comes from the exploitation of fossil resources.
Renewable gas can be obtained through different processes and in its raw, unpurified version, is called biogas in methanisation or syngas in pyro-gasification.
In case of injection into the city gas grid, these renewable gases could be purified to meet the standards of quality of methane and will present the same characteristics.
Containerized and mobile data centers can be easily set up in the immediate vicinity of each renewable gas unit, thus ensuring that energy is consumed “on-site” with no need to be connected to the gas grid.
These containerized data centers can then be moved to another unit as soon as access to the gas grid is available.
Thus, the digital services provided by these data centers make it possible to ensure remuneration for renewable gas units in all circumstances.
PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) is an energy supply agreement between an electricity producer and an electricity consumer (company, industry, energy supplier, energy distributor, etc) who commits to buy its energy over a defined period of time.
PPAs are increasingly becoming a solution for companies that want to guarantee their energy expenditure over the long term.
There are 2 types of PPAs:
- On-site PPA: the parties agree to an annual amount of electricity at a fixed price and for a defined period of time (from 5 to 25 years) and the energy is delivered to the company through a direct connection for its own consumption;
- Off-site PPA: the parties agree to an annual amount of electricity at a fixed price and for a defined period of time (from 5 to 25 years) and each party injects and consumes from the grid using their original guarantees to certify their green energy.
DATAFARM ENERGY innovates and uses these PPAs to supply renewable gas by offering GPAs (Gas purchase Agreements).
Tokenization is an approach that allows you to put the assets of a company in a token in the blockchain, a technology developed in the 90s which relies on cryptography to offer a high level of security in the transactions.
As an alternative to traditional and crowdfunding, tokenization offers an innovative, safe and fast model through a fundraising process, called “ICO”.
