Phi is positioned at the intersection of human-centred design, peer-to-peer blockchain networks, and sustainable energy. We take a lean approach, leveraging our expertise in design, urban research, systems thinking, and anthropology to make renewable energy solutions easy to use.
Many remote off-grid communities in Russia generate their electricity with imported fossil fuels that are expensive, unreliable, and harmful to the environment. While these areas supply the majority of Russia’s natural resources, the people of far-north struggle with extremely low average temperatures, and spend up 50% of their income on energy.
Phi proposes to put power in the hands of people making communities more resilient and self-sufficient. Phi helps community leaders go from having no culture of dealing with electricity, to possessing the tools and knowledge to share energy, accelerate new alternative energy sources, take control of their own development and improve their living conditions.
