FRED Energy IEO has been announced
FRED (Fund Research into Energy Devices) Energy is a blockchain project that aims to use cryptocurrencies to accelerate the growth of renewable and carbon-neutral energy devices. The project was founded by visionary Michael Josefsen, who saw the potential of cryptocurrencies to raise funds for alternative energy research.
The Energy sector is one of the biggest industries in the world with a market capitalization of more than $1.8 trillion. But compared to other industry giants such as media and technology, the energy industry has the slowest growth rate.
One of the biggest reasons for the slow growth of the energy industry is the lack of resources. Unlike the technology industry, the energy industry requires a huge amount of resources. And the majority of resources are with the existing energy sector (fossil fuel), resources for new, cleaner energy are hard to come by.
On a mission to solve this problem and help engineers, scientists and hobbyist inventors developing technologies that will one day release us from fossil fuel reliance, Michael Josefsen founded the FRED project.
FRED Energy is using blockchain and cryptocurrency technology to raise funds for the next generation of clean energy projects. The idea behind choosing blockchain and cryptocurrency is that everyone can take part in the energy revolution.
The token of FRED Energy is called the FRED token, and the project hopes of creating many green energy projects on the blockchain. Moreover, FRED Energy plans to fund next-generation energy research to accelerate alternate energy adoption.
To help investors evaluate the FRED project, the team has come up with tangible and measurable goals which ensure progress within the project. They are as follows,
- Be recognized as a key player in green energy projects on the blockchain.
- Become a brand associated with green energy that targets consumer needs
- Enter the EV charging station market via niche segments and increase market share
- Incentivize the electric Tuk-Tuk adoption in Asia
- Aid in the acceleration of alternative energy usage and generation by the consumer
- Be the main online marketplace for alternative energy products accepting cryptocurrencies
- Bring new energy saving and generation devices to the market
Area of Focus
Clean Alternative Energy is a vast field and FRED Energy knows that. That’s why FRED Energy has identified key areas of interest which they will be focussing on;
- EV Charging – Electric Vehicles are the future and as the demand for EV grows, so will the demand for charging stations.

A precursor to their electric charging station is their network of Tuk-tuk charging stations which they will begin from the year 2020.
- Marketplace – One of the biggest reasons for the lack of clean energy adoption is accessibility. Procuring clean energy materials is tough in today’s market. But FRED Energy plans to change this by creating an online marketplace where people will be able to buy and sell Clean Energy devices such as home EV charging, Solar panels, etc. Moreover, people can purchase items through Cryptocurrencies.
