Qurrent | Igor Kluin

“As entrepreneur I was too early, but as an idealist I was right on time,” says Igor Kluin, founder of Qurrent. This company, founded in 2005, allows neighbours to share their sustainably generated energy with each other through the “Q-box”.

The Q-box combines the energy generated by personal solar panels or micro wind turbines and regulates the energy needs and costs accordingly among the participating neighbours. This could ultimately cancel out the need for large overarching energy companies.

Back in 2003, Kluin was intrigued by the energy challenges our society would soon face. “A lot of people had no idea, and even if they did, they didn’t know what they could do about it,” he remembers.
