Billing solution for solar energy projects receives funding


Horw LU – Zevvy is an online platform that is designed to facilitate fair billing for small and medium-sized solar energy projects. Developed in Lucerne, it has now received 150,000 Swiss francs in funding from the Gebert Rüf Foundation through its First Ventures program.


The First Ventures program from the Gebert Rüf Foundation supports bachelor’s and master’s students at a university of applied science who have developed an innovative business idea in their thesis. Zevvy, a project from the canton of Lucerne that offers a billing solution for small and medium-sized projects, was among the winners in the latest selection round to receive 150,000 Swiss francs in funding.


Created by Fabian Jacobs, a graduate of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU), zevvy was launched by the PropTech startup EVG Zentrum in Horw in spring 2019. According to an article by startupticker.ch, it already has several hundred users. Plans are underway to soon make it possible to connect electricity meters to zevvy, which would eliminate the need to manually enter data.


EVG Zentrum was founded in 2017 to support solar energy projects that make it easier to develop independent energy consumption communities. In addition to consulting services, the startup has also been offering digitized measuring systems since the beginning of 2018.
