CRESPA was founded in June 2020 to help promote the use of renewable energy among Cardano stake pool operators (SPOs). If you run a Cardano stake pool powered by a renewable energy source (solar, wind, hydro-electric, geo-thermal, etc...) then we would love to have you as a member of our alliance. CRESPA has no central authority or leadership. We simply believe in setting an example for a brighter, cleaner tomorrow.
Electricity generation is the number one cause of air pollution in the world. Most of our electricity comes from coal, nuclear, and other non-renewable and highly toxic power sources. Producing energy from these sources takes a severe toll on our environment, polluting our land, water, and air
Renewable energy sources can be used to generate power with far fewer environmental concerns. It is now easier than ever to obtain electricity from renewable sources without emitting CO2, the leading cause of global climate change.
What is renewable energy? Renewable energy is electricity sourced from natural resources that can replenish themselves over a period of time without depleting the planet's resources. These energy sources also happen to be abundant, available nearly everywhere, and cause little, if any, environmental damage. Energy from the sun, wind, water, and geo-thermal energy stored underground are examples. In comparison, fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and natural gas are not renewable, since their quantities are limited - once we have extracted them in their entirety, they will no longer be available to use as a primary energy source. While created through natural processes, these processes are far too slow to replenish these fuels as quickly as people use them.
Cardano is unique among cryptocurrencies as Cardano’s network boasts a modular, layered protocol that runs on a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm called Ouroboros.
Cardano's PoS consensus protocol is over 37,500 times more energy efficient than Bitcoin. Largely because it does not require vast amounts of energy-consuming computational power to validate blocks for its blockchain.
Because Cardano nodes use such little energy in comparison to competitors, it is relatively simple, easy, and affordable to power a full Cardano node off of a renewable energy source.
Founder of CRESPA and firm believer In the power that both Cardano and mushrooms have to change the world and create a better future for humanity and the Earth at large.
Fungi Pool's bare-metal block producer and relay node are powered by zero-emission hydro-electric energy. Fungi's air-gapped transaction signing node is powered using off-grid solar energy.
Reservoir node is powered by 100% solar energy.
Green Stake Pool is located in Switzerland and founded the Cardano Mission Driven Pools alliance (MDP). Green is powered by a mix of hydro-electric, solar, wind, and geothermal energy.
SOLRP is dedicated to sharing the knowledge about how to build a Cardano Stake Pool on a low-consumption Raspberry-Pi and power it with solar energy.
LGBTQ mission is to create a fair and kind society for everyone! That cannot be done if we don't love the place we all live in! You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make! There was no decision for us! We were born Green and we will keep fighting to turn our home Green!
Star Forge runs on low-energy Raspberry-Pi computers and Star Link satellite internet powered by 100% off-grid solar energy.
MINI1's block producer runs on a Mac mini M1 and its relay nodes run on low-consumption Raspberry-Pi 4s. All of the nodes are powered by zero-emission Swiss hydropower.
GUI Pool runs on cloud servers in a European datacenter powered by 100% renewable energy
LOPHRE is hosted in multiple energy efficient datacenters 100% powered by renewable energy sources.
Mokum is a mission-driven stake pool run on renewable energy from the beautiful city of Amsterdam! Powered 100% on wind energy!.
