Energy Control belongs to ABD, a spanish non-governmental organization.
We receive fundings from local, regional and national authorities which are completely allocated to cover our national activities. Our economic activity is periodically audited by spanish authorities. Some of our staff is paid, but both in national and international areas, our projects go ahead thanks to the altruistic and generous work of our volunteers.

Our aim for 2018 is to improve the variety and quality of our services without increasing fees paid by users. Specific objectives are:
Offer a free/reduced fee drug checking for samples from cryptomarkets, in case we detect potencial high risk for users health (dangerous adulterants, toxic substances offered as common recreational drugs…) and other relevant public health alerts.
Publish periodical, thematical bimonthly reports, with results of our International Drug Checking Service.
Include different cryptocurrencies as payment option for our International Drug Checking Service.
Creation, maintenance and development of our own social networks (you can join our Reddit account)
Automate some processes to shorten time in drug testing and offering results to users.
It is not possible for us to achieve all these objectives with our limited fundings. But you can help us:
