Top Energy to Introduce and Onboard Carbon Credits Derived From Clean Energy Projects to the MintCarbon.io Platform of DeepMarkit’s Wholly Owned Subsidiary First Carbon Corp.
CALGARY, AB, March 23, 2022 – DeepMarkit Corp., (“DeepMarkit” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MKT) (OTC: MKTDF) (FRA: DEP), a technology company focused on creating new tools and technologies to aid businesses in sales development and increasing profitability, is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent (“LOI“) with Top Energy USA (“Top Energy“). DeepMarkit and Top Energy are currently working to crystalize the LOI into a definitive agreement in order to form a carbon offset arrangement pursuant to which Top Energy will introduce and onboard carbon credit projects onto the blockchain through MintCarbon.io, which is the platform developed by DeepMarkit’s wholly owned subsidiary, First Carbon Corp.
By way of the arrangement, DeepMarkit expects to benefit from extensive and diverse exposure to numerous alternative electricity-based carbon projects. Under the terms of the LOI, DeepMarkit and Top Energy will conduct necessary due diligence and negotiate the terms of a definitive agreement to govern the terms of the arrangement. The ultimate structure of the arrangement will be subject to applicable regulations as well as applicable securities, corporate and tax laws. The definitive agreement, and any transaction completed in connection therewith, may be subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
Based in the United States, Top Energy is a company focused on eco-friendly energy solutions in Mexico and Spain. Top Energy has specialized in clean energy technology in Spain since 2003 and expanded into Mexico in 2013. Top Energy has installed more than 41.8 megawatts (“MW“) of clean energy across 23 states of the Mexican Republic representing more than 100 institutional clients.
“Top Energy foresees incredible potential in this strategic alliance with First Carbon, bringing transparency and validation to an obscure market. We seek to take the ‘wild west’ out of the carbon trading world by marrying our clean energy credits with blockchain technology. This will offer an additional layer of assurance to our buyers, as well as making Top Energy credits internationally accessible. This sector is in severe need of additional green financing mechanisms to help the mass adoption of renewable energy in developing nations, especially in parts of the world without proper carbon markets. Through our partnership with the First Carbon platform, Top Energy seeks to realize liquidity through providing tokenized access to carbon projects,” said Jonathan Gonzalez, CEO of Top Energy.
“Top Energy is an exciting business that we are looking forward to becoming our newest counterparty. Their group shares DeepMarkit’s commitment to the environment, specifically by providing ecological solutions to modern day energy mandates. We are excited to bring a diverse array of technology-based offset credits to the MintCarbon.io platform. Once formalized, this arrangement will provide liquidity to Top Energy’s carbon credits, while delivering DeepMarkit important and valuable transaction volume,” said Ranjeet Sundher, Interim CEO of DeepMarkit.
