We were the first in Italy to combine mining with the renewable energy sector in 2019. Our idea stems from a business model for hydroelectric power plants active in Italy until the 1980s, which exploited the energy unsold to the grid to feed industries and companies located near the power plant. Today, we have more than 20 farms across the peninsula, with the aim of exploiting the production potential of hydroelectric power plants through self-consumption.
Why Alps Farms?
The benefits for energy producers
New value to energy produced
Mining farms introduced in hydropower plants integrate with conventional energy production systems. Part of the energy produced, which is surplus or otherwise destined to be fed into the national grid, is recycled and used for self-consumption by the mining farm, guaranteeing a higher profit.
Revamping of hydroelectric plants
Our ethical and intelligent management system offers the opportunity to breathe new life into existing hydroelectric power plants by installing state-of-the-art technologies that optimise the yield of available resources.
A new and diversified business model
The energy from the power plant that powers the mining farm produces computing power that enables access to the blockchain and bitcoin mining ecosystem. The energy producer also becomes a direct producer of hashing power, adding another process to its supply chain.
Reliability and security
The computing power produced by the installed mining farm can in turn be purchased by Alps Blockchain, guaranteeing a secure return and simplifying operational and bureaucratic aspects.
Demand Responsive Service
Mining farms can interface with the electricity grid much more easily than other industrial players, making them an ideal partner for providing flexibility services to the grid. That is, they can easily reduce or increase the power dedicated to computing, absorbing less power when the grid has too little, or more when the grid has too much.
Give your power plant a new lease of life!
Are you an energy producer and think this project might be right for you? You do not need any special mining experience to start the project in your power plant. What do you need? A desire to seize a high-potential growth opportunity. We'll take care of the rest.
