A new company based on blockchain and focussing on energy efficiency, EFFORCE, will be based in Malta with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak investing in and co-founding it.
Speaking at the pre-launch of the Delta Summit, Wozniak said that efficiency has always been important to him. He said the idea is to save money on energy but also to do good on the environment.
Blockchain will improve the way we use energy and lower energy consumption without changing our habits, Wozniak said.
Mr Wozniak arrived in Malta on Wednesday and joined Parliamentary Secretary Silvio Schembri on Thursday at the launch of the Delta Summit, a blockchain and digital innovation conference which will group industry leaders in Malta in October.
He said the company, Efforce, is a platform for investors to profit from energy efficiency projects.
“I have wanted to be part of Malta for ages in my life,” Wozniak said.
Mr Wozniak also had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, currently on an official visit in Luxembourg.
