As every month, Pylon Network offers a review of the highlights for the past month and a preview of what’s to expect for the coming month.
With February 2020 being part of History and March 2020 about to unfold, this is your monthly dosage of Pylon Network!
Over the past years, Genera Trade Fair has become the biggest international event in Europe for energy and the environment and attracting every organization and stakeholder of the Spanish energy sector, from all perspectives of sustainability, innovation & business.
Due to the very ambitious energy regulation reform that has been taking place in Spain over the past months, this year the interest and attractiveness of Genera was over the roof!
It did not come as a surprise that the most hot topic (which was sparked by the new regulations) was the collective self-consumption market and its future potential in Spain.
Pylon team was – of course – there during all the days of the event and had the chance to listen to several presentations and engage with several energy stakeholders from the self-consumption space – and not only.
Collective self-consumption & blockchain: the added-value for their market operation (VIDEO)
Our third explanatory video on collective self-consumption was published at the beginning of the month. This part (Vol.3), explains the core value proposition for Pylon’s blockchain technology for the digital operation of collective self-consumption installations.
A neutral energy data hub for the transparent and secure/private sharing of energy data (consumption & production) among various market stakeholders who surround the operation of collective self-consumption schemes.
See the full video, here:
With the addition of this video, our self-consumption playlist also got updated. You can find the full playlist here.
Meet our new CFO: Paco Negre!
Two very important additions in our team were announced last month. Two additions with immense added value and potential for the future of Pylon Network.
The first announcement was that of Paco Negre being appointed as CFO, after several years as our advisor.
Paco carries a long successful history in entrepreneurship, business and strategic innovation and an equally impressive track record as an investor.
You can read more about Paco and his resumé in our blog post, here.
Meet our new Chairman: Javier Cervera!
The addition of Paco, was followed by the appointment of Javier Cervera as Pylon’s Chairman.
We met Javier through our collaboration in the self-consumption project that he has been leading and we are delighted, few months later, to have him on board.
Having him as a new member in our family – with his top-professional knowledge & experience from the energy energy sector – makes us honored, proud and impatient for what the future holds!

Pylon Analysis: The new tariffs for electricity consumers in Spain
The new tariffs for Spanish electricity consumers are intended to more actively engage the consumers with the energy market and give them a toolbox for taking action to reduce their electricity costs and footprint.
However, it implies some deep changes in the love – hate relationship between consumers and the electricity suppliers (aka. retailers)
This is why we published an opinion article on the new regulations and the trends & strategies that we start to see unfolding.

Last October, Pylon Network was selected as winners of World Summit Awards (WSA) in the Green Energy & Environment category.

From March 8-11 in Vienna, the WSA Global Congress will be taking place and Pylon team will be there and be part of it – presenting Pylon Network in a panel of UN officials, government representatives and within a global pool of innovative ideas and talent with social impact.
We are looking forward to a truly global event – find out more about the WSA, here.

Our CEO, Gerard Bel, will be joining a great panel with other energy experts to present the lessons from our journey in the self-consumption market.
