All conventional approaches to cope with the climate crisis (like politics, subsidies, taxes, certificates) can not close the gap to reach the Paris Agreement in time. We need a new solution, a commercial approach. That is where Peer-Energy AG with its PEP Crowd-Invest solution steps in. PEP fights climate change from the bottom up, from the people, with a unique commercially oriented system that only knows winners. First time in history, PEP works with the full price to treat CO2 emissions ($173.50 per t CO2) for the whole damage caused by purchased goods, travel, events etc in daily life. Be aware that the treatment is only 0.5% of the purchase price (e.g. Rolex € 10’000, PEP € 500 or earphone € 150, PEP € 0.75). The treatment of CO2 with the PEP Crowd-Invest business case is a two-legged thing. One is to massively reduce CO2 emissions with industrial CO2 certificates (EUA, 15% of PEP) and the other is to remarkably accelerate the energy transition with micro crowd-investments in renewables (85% of PEP) at best conditions. The PEP Participants treat CO2 shared with industrial partners (e.g. luxury goods, insurance, tourism, events) or standalone. All investments are peer-to-peer into projects of the industrial partner or third-party projects. The PEP team consists of both experienced professionals and young people who are up to date with the latest scientific developments. An outstandingly well-staffed Board of Directors handles all strategic issues with high competence. The finance plan shows the revenue generated from PEP Crowd-Invest will exceed EUR 100 million per year in 2024. By this time, PEP has over 5 million paying customers and 10 million in the community. Break-even will be reached by 2022.
