Lumenaza GmbH was founded in 2013 by Dr. Christian Chudoba and Dr. Bernhard Böhmer. Oliver March joined the founding team in 2014.
The idea for the company came about during a visit to a family celebration in a small village in Franconia. Virtually everyone there generates green electricity. But strangely enough, you could not buy the electricity anywhere, and it was often dependent on non-transparent offers. We thought that an approach that has worked well for food for years should actually work even better for regional electricity.
That idea sparked the development of our software, which uses sophisticated algorithms to ensure a secure and balanced supply of green electricity in regional communities. The software has been operational and available on the market since the beginning of 2014. We have already implemented many projects with municipal utilities, project developers, energy cooperatives and new energy players - initially with the approach of introducing regional electricity products.
And in 2016, we developed our software into a “utility in a box” solution and can now offer all the services of an energy service provider in a modular and highly automated way.
