Additional Information

Initial target is to attract small and medium-sized businesses (and their supply chain) to participate in the scheme; as the system grows and becomes stronger and more interesting, we aim to attract larger businesses and local government as participants: organisations where almost all the members would be able to spend their Dam, such as the City Council, large energy suppliers etc.
