Message from the Chairman

Rikiya Abe
Chairman, CEO & CTO

Energy is an incredibly important asset, a vital foundation for modern life. The rapid social development of the last few decades was driven by fossil fuel-derived energy. However, sources of fossil fuels such as oil and gas fields were not evenly distributed throughout the world. This has led to countless conflicts and constant political unrest. It has also spurred much economic instability, best represented by the oil crises of the last century.

Access to renewable energy, on the other hand, the proliferation of which has rapidly accelerated in recent years, is essentially even across the globe. Further, it exists in amounts greater than humanity could possibly exhaust. While its supply does fluctuate over the short term, on average it is stable on a year-to-year basis.

If we can master this highly-distributed source of energy, humanity will be forever liberated from the energy problem.

That’s why Digital Grid Corporation is working to develop and release digitalization technologies that integrate energy, information, and finance. We aim to provide a platform that allows users to trade all types of energy, including fossil fuels, on a business basis. On this platform, providers and consumers will engage in economically rational transactions that I believe will eventually lead to a shift to clean renewable energy.

We are determined to tackle the lofty goal of freeing humanity from energy restrictions, and we will not stop until our dream becomes a reality.
