Everyone wins by accessing the most competitive energy prices

This marketplace transacts in real time over a forward market, responding to external supplier and feed-in tariffs. Every market participant in the community can benefit from more competitive prices, which incentivizes consuming on-site renewable generation, dynamic demand response and returns on energy storage. Distro is also designed to work alongside other energy procurement such as PPAs, to improve overall cost efficiencies.

Port of Rotterdam Innovation Dock


Europe's largest port, the Port of Rotterdam, is undergoing large-scale growth in renewables and electrification.

The successful trial of Distro's new microgrid trading platform facilitated fair and transparent prices, as well as cost-efficient consumption of renewable energy for our tenants. Balancing local electricity needs with local generation is key to unlocking significant grid infrastructure savings. We are excited about the prospects of scaling this solution and the meaningful contribution it can make toward helping the Port of Rotterdam become carbon neutral by 2050.
