Development as a conductor for the green energy transition


Bolt claims to be the first energy platform to make the Belgian power grid genuinely sustainable. Thanks to Bolt, you can buy your energy directly from local, green generators.

The project

With Bolt, you get to choose from whom you buy your green energy, under full transparency. This noble mission requires ingenious tools and platforms that guide new customers within the energy sector, enable selective energy purchases, keep existing customers up-to-date with the energy market and allow them to transparently view and manage their own data. A really challenging set of assets to develop, but one that our developers are happy to take on.

As an energy platform that claims to go against the current, Bolt has a challenging promise to fulfil. With complete transparency, they fight greenwashing in the energy sector. Because with Bolt, every supplier gets a face, and you know exactly where your energy comes from. But to share knowledge in such detail and at such scale, an advanced platform is no luxury. Together with the Bolt team, our development expert is looking into tools and platforms that inform users as simply and transparently as possible.

The power of transparency

A transparent choice in energy suppliers, how does it work? As a Bolt customer, you start your green energy journey with an online simulation where you can choose your own generator. And that choice, you get to found on accurate and crucial information. You are given all kinds of facts and figures that can help you make a conscious choice, ranging from the type of green energy over inspection certificates and the amount of energy available, to even the name and face of the generators.

And it doesn't stop there: recently, our colleague and the team at Bolt expanded this highly interactive platform even further to include insights into your own energy consumption. As a consumer, you can see how much electricity you consumed, as well as the energy price at the time. Based on these numbers, the platform makes suggestions to help reduce the final bill.

The right tool for every challenge

Furthermore, the developers also developed a tool to support customer service. Thanks to this tool, the customer care heroes at Bolt can make adjustments at the customer's request when they need some extra support.

The sales team can also count on technological optimisations. For them, the team developed a tool to adapt the simulation flow in function of the sales process. This way, they can always show the optimal operation of Bolt, adapted to the prospect's personal needs.

Processing customer feedback is also a streamlined process thanks to a tailor-made tool. Just like photo management, for that matter. The developers at Bolt are constantly working to optimise not only the customer experience, but also the business processes. And our colleague is happy to assist them.

SEO for good throughput

How do you make sure prospects find your website? Right, through SEO. Search engine findability is a consideration that plays a role in almost all of Bolt's developments, not least in the development field. For instance, the team opted for React in combination with Next.js to build the website and platform. This combination not only improves performance and developer experience, it is also a winning combo from an SEO point of view.

Furthermore, custom meta-tags and optimised structured data ensure good website flow. And as pièce de résistance, Bolt launched the energy encyclopaedia: not only a handy guide that helps users understand the terminology in the energy landscape and on their energy bills, but that also leads information seekers to the most transparant platform.
